1. Quaker Chewy Dark Chocolate Cherry 90 Calorie Granola Bars
(90 Calories, 2g Fat per Bar)
Whole-grain oats and wheat make this bar a heart-smart choice, but it was the combination of fruit and candy flavors that won over testers' taste buds. One said: "It's the next best thing to a chocolate-covered cherry." ($3 for a box of 10)

2. Hostess 100 Calorie Packs Cinnamon Streusel Muffins
(100 Calories, 3g Fat for 3 Cakes)
You'll save a whopping 31 grams of sugar and 15 grams of fat by selecting these bitesize treats over the coffeehouse version, but you'll still get that crumbly cinnamon-spiced top—not to mention 5 grams of fiber per three-pack. ($4 for 6 packs of 3)

3. Starbucks Skinny Mocha
(90 Calories, 0g Fat for 12 oz.)
This espresso beverage has about half the calories of the original but still meets 30 percent of your daily calcium needs. "The flavor is like a creamy cross between coffee and hot cocoa," said one tester. "I'll definitely be drinking the iced version this summer!" ($3 for a tall cup)

4. Reese's Peanut Butter Snacksters
(100 Calories, 4g Fat per Pack)
Need a serious hit of PB minus the J? This goodie grab bag filled with peanut butter chips, cereal puffs, and Reese's Pieces makes short work of cravings. One comment: "For peanut butter addicts like me, this mix totally hits the spot." ($3 for a box of 7)

5. Pepperidge Farm Montieri Raspberry Tart Cookies
(120 Calories, 3g Fat for 2 Cookies)
Made with a layer of real fruit and a flaky pastry lattice top, "this cookie reminds me of a fresh-baked pie, in miniature!" one taster claimed. Plus, the treat contains no artificial flavors or preservatives, just like Grandma used to make. ($3 for a bag of 12)

16th-Mar-2009 12:27 pm - 6 Reasons You Overeat
We can post articles, right?

You're overstuffed from dinner, yet you can't resist ordering the Double Dark Chocolate Two-Layer Cake for dessert. You devour an entire bag of barbecue-flavored potato chips at one sitting when you felt like having only a few. Everywhere you go, from the "big box" retailers to your own desk at work and kitchen at home, environmental cues encourage you to eat more than you need -- or even want.

This is definitly something I have a problem with. )
