1. Quaker Chewy Dark Chocolate Cherry 90 Calorie Granola Bars
(90 Calories, 2g Fat per Bar)
Whole-grain oats and wheat make this bar a heart-smart choice, but it was the combination of fruit and candy flavors that won over testers' taste buds. One said: "It's the next best thing to a chocolate-covered cherry." ($3 for a box of 10)

2. Hostess 100 Calorie Packs Cinnamon Streusel Muffins
(100 Calories, 3g Fat for 3 Cakes)
You'll save a whopping 31 grams of sugar and 15 grams of fat by selecting these bitesize treats over the coffeehouse version, but you'll still get that crumbly cinnamon-spiced top—not to mention 5 grams of fiber per three-pack. ($4 for 6 packs of 3)

3. Starbucks Skinny Mocha
(90 Calories, 0g Fat for 12 oz.)
This espresso beverage has about half the calories of the original but still meets 30 percent of your daily calcium needs. "The flavor is like a creamy cross between coffee and hot cocoa," said one tester. "I'll definitely be drinking the iced version this summer!" ($3 for a tall cup)

4. Reese's Peanut Butter Snacksters
(100 Calories, 4g Fat per Pack)
Need a serious hit of PB minus the J? This goodie grab bag filled with peanut butter chips, cereal puffs, and Reese's Pieces makes short work of cravings. One comment: "For peanut butter addicts like me, this mix totally hits the spot." ($3 for a box of 7)

5. Pepperidge Farm Montieri Raspberry Tart Cookies
(120 Calories, 3g Fat for 2 Cookies)
Made with a layer of real fruit and a flaky pastry lattice top, "this cookie reminds me of a fresh-baked pie, in miniature!" one taster claimed. Plus, the treat contains no artificial flavors or preservatives, just like Grandma used to make. ($3 for a bag of 12)

I've been reading this great book on how your different body types can effect how you lose weight.

Have you ever wondered how your friend can eat all the meat she wants & not gain a pound? Have you ever wondered why you crave bread sticks & sweets while on a diet but your best friend craves dairy products? Have you ever wondered why you gain all of your weight in your stomach but your friend gains it everywhere?

Well, I was kind of wondering the same things. So I picked up this amazing book that tells me what body type I have, what meals I should eat, a meal plan, an exercise plan, a recipe section, & a lot more. I've lost 2 lbs in the past week that I haven't been able to do in the past 6 months.

It's called Dr. Abravanel's Body Type Diet and Lifetime Nutrition Plan. It may look 80's by the cover, my step-grandmother actually gave it to me, but it's a good read.
