As long as you don’t indulge with wild abandon, snacks can satisfy your treat cravings so you don’t feel deprived. And that means you’re less likely to jump ship on your weight loss voyage. The key is to pay attention to what you’re eating, savor every bite, and keep track of your daily calories.Here’s a list of 10-calorie servings that you can build into 100- or 200-calorie snacks to fit into your daily calorie allotment.
