Originally Answered: What is the "healthiest" junk food option?
Diets don't work in the long run. They are temporary, and once the weight is off, most people revert back to their usual eating patterns and regain the weight.
Forget about dieting. Make a permanent change to your eating habits, and you will lose weight and keep it off. Healthy eating is about portion control and moderation. You CAN have sweets and savoury treats, but in moderation.
Nuts are a great snack. They contain fiber, protein and the healthy unsaturated fats. Why not snack on a handful of nuts and dried apricots? Instead of icecream you can try frozen low fat yoghurt. Buy it ready made from the store, or make your own. For sweeteners, instead of sugar, use stevia, which is a natural plant product.
