you should only have cheese in VERY SMALL AMOUNTS! Even the stuff called low fat cheese is very high fat compared with lots of other foods. If you really want cheese, grate it - eating grated cheese makes you think you are eating more than you actually are!!!! If you have a cheese samdwich, use a THIN layer of grated cheese in there instead of slices of cheese. Also, salsa dips and stuff like mustard can be fat free (check the label) and if you like those things, they can make veggies more interesting to dip them in. Or things like cinammom sprinkled on fruit. Hope that helped!!!!

Fruits and veggies can get very boring. For snacks you could try nuts like almonds or walnuts, but if your not a nut person then Yogurt, low sugar and fat granola bars or even saltines with peanut butter(used in small amounts of course). Happy snacking!
