These reverse-gateway foods taste like cheating, but they'll help you get back on the weight-loss wagon.
Sunflower seeds: They're packed with nutrients, and snacking on a handful may regulate your nerves and muscles.
Eat this: A 1/4-cup serving
Plain frozen yogurt with fresh fruit: It has less fat than ice cream but five grams of filling protein per serving. Fruit gives it more flavor, texture, and vitamins.
Eat this: 1 1/2 cups
Dark chocolate: Just a small portion of this antioxidant-filled treat satisfies a sweet tooth.
Eat this: 1 oz dark chocolate with 65 percent (or more) cacao
Pistachios: They satisfy a salt craving while delivering more natural antioxidants than most other nuts. Plus, the shells will slow you down.
Eat this: 30 in-shell nuts
Mini whole-wheat pretzels: Crunchy and packed with fiber to keep you fuller longer, so you won't reach for a higher-calorie food.
Eat this: 1 oz pretzels (about a handful)
