  • Honestly, I would start with a cup of herbal tea - no sweeteners. Sip it very slowly. After that, if you are still hungry, reach for raw veggies or fruit - but again, eat slowly. I would steer clear of the peanut butter - even though it's organic, it's still mostly fat.

  • Having a piece of fruit is alright, or a Fage. They have a similar calorie count. Just don't eat all of the fruit/jam. I leave about 1/3 of it there when I have them. PB is alright, just don't do it every day. You're better off with whole nuts. Is it natural peanut butter (where the only ingredient is peanuts) or is it the no-stir kind, which generally has palm oil, sugar, etc in it?

  • Fruit yes is healthy, but very high in sugar. Sugar may be causing your cravings. Do you watch your sugar intake throughout the day? I have found that if Iimit my sugar intake I do better. Nuts are the best type of snack. Almonds are the best, then pecans. They do have fat in them but is healthy fat and NO sugar!

  • Llist of "negative calorie foods" is silly. All of those foods have calories. Especially the items near the end like Oranges, Watermelon, Grapefruit, Peaches, etc. All fruits/veg are not "negative calorie foods" which this list is implying. 1 tennis-ball sized round fruit (such as a peach) has 15 gms of carbs and about 80 calories. You do not use 80 or more calories to process that fruit. Our bodies run on sugar -- we call it Blood Glucose. It's essential for life and fruit is part of a normal healthy diet. Yes, eat slowly. But also eat high-fiber (google "Volumetrics"), 5-7 servings of fruits and veggies daily. If you are hungry late at night, I would ask myself: Do I need to stay up this late? If I go to bed earlier, will I be less likely to snack unnecessarily? Eat dinner later, like 6 or 7 pm. Between meals, drink water or herbal tea every time you get hungry, wait 15 min, then eat 1/4 Cup nuts or a veg.
