Scale-Friendly Snacking Tips :
Whether for a night in watching must-see TV, night out at a silver screen flick or even a day at the office, making small dietary changes can help contribute to a positive self-image. Here are some tips for keeping weight management goals in check while snacking:
- Guzzle some bubbly... water. Swap the usual cocktail or soda for sugar-free carbonated water for a low-calorie option!
- Skip the snack stand. Love buttery movie popcorn? Have a hankering for a box of sweets? Swap higher calorie options for Special K® Popcorn Chips in Butter or Sweet & Salty for a delicious crunch that will satisfy your cravings.
- Keep calorie-conscious company. Invite friends for a movie night and encourage them to bring other waistline-friendly options, such as a vegetable tray and hummus.
