20. Snack smartly.

Snack with your health in mind. Smart snacking can help with your weight loss efforts by taking the edge off in-between meal hunger before it develops into ravenous over-eating. Since fewer than 30 percent of Americans are eating the minimum number of servings from the dairy and fruit groups, make snacks work for you by choosing foods that may be missing at mealtimes. Smart snack ideas include a yogurt and a piece of fruit; a baked apple or pear; or a homemade fruit smoothie made with milk and yogurt, fruit, and ice, blended to a frosty swirl.
