Something that is a hot topic is weight loss and weight gain and foods that we should try to avoid.  But with all of the holidays, especially Easter and all of its chocolate goodies, it is hard to stick away from junk food.  Many people don’t know that there is a list of food items that are better, not great, for people who want to snack.

Thanks to Yahoo and the Eat This, Not That book series, there is a list of junk food that is ok to eat if you are hell-bent on snacking.  Here are some of my weak points with things that I should be eating.  Now, I am a donut man and they say I should eat Krispy Kremes. What a shame 🙂

10 g sugars

I also love hard candy.  There is something about it that reminds me of my aunt’s house when I would go to visit.  She always had a dish of candy.  And I am glad one of my favorites is on the list!

When it comes to pudding, this one is a no-brainer.  Sugar free items are always fewer calories.  But they don’t always taste good.  This one tastes good though:

I am also a fudge-cicle junkie.  I can never get enough of the stuff.  And one of my favorites is on the list again!
