- Question from Steph: I'm always hungry. Are there any healthy snacks that can really fill you up?
- Answers - Melinda Irwin Popcorn is usually good.
- Cyndi Thomson, Ph.D., R.D. I tend to push people toward raw fresh vegetables, because they can help fill you up. There's a lot of good high fiber crackers on the market now, like All Bran and Triscuit, etc. Quite honestly, a little bit of fat at the end of a snack, like maybe a teaspoon or two with the last cracker will help to satisfy you more. Or maybe some string cheese.
- Melinda Irwin I like cottage cheese. You can get fat-free cottage cheese. That fills me up.
