You're probably familiar with most of these already, but these are my favorite foods for filling up on minimal calories. Let me know if you want any additional info about any of them.

  • Puffed corn - 60cal per cup and lots of volume

  • Sugarfree jello cups - 5-15cal each

  • Halo Top ice cream (praise be)

  • All the green leafy vegetables

  • Soup (even cream-based ones can be pretty reasonable)

  • Egg whites

  • Oat fiber

  • Shirataki noodles

  • Tofu

  • Coco Lite - 16cal each. They're light, puffy, large crackers. Kind of like packing peanuts that you'd use to ship something. Not bad with Laughing Cow or something similar on them.

  • Laughing Cow - Mostly 35cal each.

  • Arctic Frozen ice cream - 150-300cal per pint. Easier to find than Halo Top, but pretty gross. Good for desperately eating a whole pint of ice cream.

  • Rice crackers - This link is just for reference. You can find different brands of these kind of crackers at most stores. Around 100cal for 16 crackers. Not bad, pretty bland.

  • Wasa Crackers - Many varieties, pretty low cal.

  • Turkey/chicken chili – If you like canned chili, the turkey or chicken based ones are pretty good and have far fewer calories than the beef ones. I like Hormel's Turkey Chili, but it's admittedly pretty white trashy. Always get it with beans. They provide extra protein and fill you up more.

  • Rice cakes – 35cal each and good as a substitute for crackers.

  • PB2 - I've never tried this but have heard good things from people who like peanut butter.

  • Protein powder – 150ish calories per serving. Fills you up fast and is cheaper than your premixed drinks.

  • Hot Pockets – If you can stand these, avoid the low fat ones. The regular kinds have about the same amount of calories. 200-300 cal each. Good for a quick, shitty meal.

  • Walden Foods - - I've tried their salad dressing and their coffee creamer. You're not going to be wowed by any of their stuff, but for having almost no calories, it can be worth it.

  • ThinSlim Foods - – I haven't tried them, but have only heard good things.

  • Freeze-dried fruit – They are different than "dried" fruit. They've had all the liquid removed, so they're crunchy. 100-150 per bag generally and you can find a bunch of fruits.

  • Sprouts of any kind – alfalfa sprouts, brocolli sprouts, etc. Cheap and filling with good flavor.

  • Greek yogurt – Usually 100cal per serving. Comes in some good flavors, and you can find it pretty much anywhere.

  • Low cal pudding. Either premade or boxed-instant. You can find them in the 25-100cal per serving range. Can be nice for a quick sweet or you can mix it with other stuff.

  • FlatOut Bread - There are a bunch of brands that make similar items. Great for making little pizzas, rollups, etc. 90-110cal each.

  • Crunchmaster Multi-Grain Crackers Delicious on their own or with a topping. Roughly 8cal per cracker.

You said you live at home, so you can't control all the food; that's fine. You can still do it, it'll just take some more willpower!

I echo everyone on meal planning. Every Sunday I make my lunches for the week (black bean soup this week), and I usually have the same breakfast (overnight oats) everyday (except this week I made a loaf of lemon blueberry poppyseed oat bread, yum!). Invest in a food scale (you can get a great one for under $30; here's mine) and take an hour or two on the weekends to plan meals. This way you don't have to worry about overeating or what your days are going to be like. This should help stop the anxious fasting. You do all the work at once and then have breakfast/lunch everyday ready for you.

As for snacks, do you get a say in what snacks are "yours?" I freaking love potato chips and would get a bag every week. Once i started getting more serious about making a change, I started getting the reduced fat kind. Then I tried pop chips. Now I don't eat so many chips at all, and I have reduced my snacking. Just gradually make healthier choices until it's not too hard to say, "I don't need chips today." I also keep cookie dough in the freezer, the kind that are individual cookies? So if i want a cookie i have to wait about thirty minutes for the oven to preheat and the cookies to cook. This also saves me from just reaching in the pantry.

I've got plenty of gluten free recipes if you are interested! My husband isn't gluten free, but he doesn't complain. Most of my recipes just use regular ingredients so it's not like you miss gluten. Also I prefer recipes with lots of protein to keep me full longer.

Lemon Poppyseed Oat Bread (8 slices) Adapted by reducing honey to 3 tbsp, Poppyseeds to 2 tbsp, used 2% Fage greek yogurt, and added 1.5 pints of blueberries. (237 kcal, 35.3 Carbs, 6.1 Fat, 11 Protein)

Overnight Oats
I was using Bob's Red Mill Muesli, but now I'm making my own blend with oats, pepitas, sunflower seeds, dried cranberries, and coconut. You can tailor it to what you like! Mix together and let sit overnight; I usually eat it with diced apples.
1/4 cup Muesli (or your own mix)
80 ml Coconut/almond milk (I use Califia Farms)
60 grams Fage 2% Greek Yogurt
1/2 tbsp ground Cinnamon
1 tsp chia seeds
(278 kcal, 27 Carbs, 11 Fat, 19 Protein)

Here's the soup I have in the slow cooker now! (5 servings)
I used chicken broth instead of veggie broth, so it's not vegan. I'm still debating about cooking some lean ground turkey to add in, but i'll decide after it's done! (305 kcal, 65.5 carbs, 2.1 Fat, 21.7 Protein)

Hope these help a bit!

I have a Vegetti that's about 3 months old. I've only used it 5 times with zucchini but it's turned out great. I'm looking forward to using it more often.

My favorite dish is sautee 1 spiralized zucchini in a little oil, then add one of the Laughing Cow wedges in the pan and smush it in until it melds together with the zucchini pasta. It tastes awesome.

u/bananaslammock08 · 8 pointsr/1200isplenty

I love my spiralizer. I also really like having my own Popsicle molds so I can make healthy/low cal frozen treats. I also drink black coffee and I've found that a french press and a hand-turn burr grinder (all the decent electric ones are hundreds of dollars and I'm too busy buying Halo Top to drop that kind of dough to save myself less than a minute each morning) make the best black coffee, plus they don't take up room on the counter top. You do have to grind your own beans with a french press and you have to use a burr grinder to get a course, consistent grind, which one of those electric things with a spinning blade can't provide.

Having a mandolin can be nice for thinly and evenly slicing veggies for baked chips and the like (mine is Oxo) but I would recommend buying one of those cut resistant glove things to use with it as the hand held thing that comes with the mandolin to slide food across is annoying as all hell, but I think that's a universal when it comes to mandolins.

I also love my food scale (again, Oxo). I have the one that weighs heavier weights at home and the little baby 5 lb limit one at work which is great because then I can measure out a serving of crackers, dip, whatever out of a larger container at work and I don't have to pre-measure everything at home and use a bunch of containers and then have to haul it all to and from work.

u/Ninimodo · 1 pointr/1200isplenty

If you're in the market for a good spiralizer, I'm a HUGE fan of the Oxo Good Grips. I bought 3 <$5 cone-shaped ones from stores like Ross and HomeGoods before splurging on this one. It's so much easier to use than the cones (and safer) and I like the noodle size. I actually ended up getting some for my sister and mom as well.

u/chronicallynervous · 1 pointr/1200isplenty

Yeah, shirataki noodles really help me save calories while still filling me up!! I love them!! I actually just buy them in the regular grocery store (I go to Safeway, I'm not sure if those stores are in your area) and also Whole Foods. Depending on your area you might need to go to a specialty store though. They also sell them on Amazon with Prime in case you can't find them in person! Link Here

u/majime100 · 3 pointsr/1200isplenty

You definitely need the stand version if you want to spiralize harder vegetables like butternut squash. America's Test Kitchen did a review of the best spiralizers and they picked the Paderno World Cuisine Tri-Blade Plastic Spiral Vegetable Slicer as the best. It's only $24 on Amazon

u/1920pixels · 3 pointsr/1200isplenty

Thanks! Honestly you can use any type of container. This is what I use. It has two tiers, and my "bento scraps" (foods that I weighed and already logged but I didn't use for decorating) go in the top tier. I have this one as well, but the capacity of it is too much for what I want to eat per meal. I've seen other people on here use that type of bento box though, and it looks good! See these examples: Bento 1; Bento 2

u/notverycreative10 · 2 pointsr/1200isplenty

I have a Greater Goods food scale that I got on Amazon and I love it. It’s on sale right now for $9.95 too which is a great deal!

u/ShiroiKabochaPumpkin · 5 pointsr/1200isplenty

Yep, I love hummus. :) The bento box I ordered from amazon. I really liked that it included chopsticks with their own holder integrated into the lid.

u/lkroche · 2 pointsr/1200isplenty

Any of these are probably good. I personally use this one:
It's just small and easy to store and easy to clean and it's not at all hard to use. If you can find a place that ships internationally, then all you need is this little gadget and then you can noodle most veggies.

u/reddexx · 8 pointsr/1200isplenty

This scale is mine. It's excellent and is twelve bucks, tares and does conversions on the go. Simple and easy to use, works fantastic.

u/mouseptato · 2 pointsr/1200isplenty

For something different and fun, try zucchini and a spiralizer. I use this simple one; it's like sharpening a pencil:

It goes great with stir fry.

u/pewpewlefty · 3 pointsr/1200isplenty

Etekcity Digital Kitchen Scale Multifunction Food Scale, 11 lb 5 kg, Silver, Stainless Steel (Batteries Included)

I like this one because the numbers are backlit, it’s easy to clean, and most importantly the batteries last forever.

u/OnTheRocksWithSalt · 3 pointsr/1200isplenty

That’s what they’re getting at. A lot of packaging will say something like “approximately 13 crackers”, and/or just give you weight. This is why, for people using CICO, a food scale is a godsend.

Edit: Ozeri ZK14-S Pronto Digital...

This is my fav.

u/SpontaneousViolence · 3 pointsr/1200isplenty

Spiralizers are great for this if you're making it regularly or for a large group of people. I have one of these which is awesome.

u/mapachemadness19 · 2 pointsr/1200isplenty

I use one from Greater Goods, because they care about their workers, give back to charity, and have paperless starting guides. I got mine on Amazon.

u/frontstepgames · 9 pointsr/1200isplenty

Ole Xtreme Wellness Tortillas: Only 50 calories and they're good. They can be a tad mushy, but if you brown each side in a hot skillet for a few seconds they turn out perfect.

u/15maddened · 2 pointsr/1200isplenty

This is the one I’ve used since January and it has been awesome! It’s incredibly accurate, cheap, and it’s pretty small, so you can just slide it into a drawer when it isn’t being used!

u/YouSmellOfButterfly · 4 pointsr/1200isplenty

I buy these bean-only noodles:

Not necessarily low calorie, but very high fiber and protein. They taste good, better than any other pasta replacement in my opinion.

u/HermionesBook · 9 pointsr/1200isplenty

For me, a food scale and a calorie counting app (MyFitnessPal in my case) are the two most helpful and important things to have in my weight loss journey. The food scale makes calorie counting a LOT easier imo

I’ve been using this one for over 2 years: Amazon in general has a lot of affordable ones. Make sure whichever one you get has a TARE function and can weigh in grams/ounces/etc

u/Berkshire0629 · 2 pointsr/1200isplenty

Kitchen: Ozeri Touch Professional Digital Kitchen Scale (12 lbs Edition), Tempered Glass in Elegant Black

Body weight: pretty sure it's this one: EatSmart Precision Digital Bathroom Scale w/ Extra Large Lighted Display, 400 lb. Capacity and "Step-On" Technology [2014 VERSION] - 10,000+ Reviews EatSmart Guaranteed Accurate

u/whitewhitewine · 1 pointr/1200isplenty

Since beginning to count calories, I have purchased and frequently used my food scale (this one), measuring spoons/cups (I bought this set of 19 spoons/cups), a veggie steamer, a mandolin for thinly slicing veggies to put in lasagna instead of noodles, a spiralizer for pasta-like noodles, can covers to keep canned foods fresh after I open the can (like artichoke hearts, black beans, etc)., and a slow cooker/crock pot.

u/ZapsspaZ · 6 pointsr/1200isplenty

This is also my favorite breakfast/snack. Ready to take it to the next level? Everything bagel seasoning.
you're welcome in advance

u/nedragb · 2 pointsr/1200isplenty

I use this one:

It works extremely well for squash and zucchini. It was $6 at TJ Maxx but they have them at Amazon, Target, pretty much anywhere!

u/trickyturnip · 5 pointsr/1200isplenty

This is the food scale I use. I've had it for about 2 years. It's still on its original batteries and I use it multiple times per day. (: I'm no expert, so there may be better and cheaper ones out there, but I really like mine!

u/nutterysquirrel · 5 pointsr/1200isplenty

Yes I love my scale. I measure everything because even though a serving size may say 4 cookies (28g) that doesn't mean it's actually 4 cookies for a serving size, it's usually always above or below the weight. I use this scale, it's always accurate.

u/gooberfaced · 5 pointsr/1200isplenty

My Fitness Pal has a recipe calculator that does all the work for you.
You only have to work up each recipe once then it's there for you whenever you make it.

You'll have to have a kitchen scale which is about a million times easier to use than you think. Here's a popular one.

u/spitfyre · 1 pointr/1200isplenty

It was a wedding gift so im not positive but i think its this one:

It works really well except even when suctioned down the spiralizer does move a little. I'd recommend it.

u/aliceisaeep · 3 pointsr/1200isplenty

Ozeri ZK14-S Pronto Digital Multifunction Kitchen and Food Scale, Elegant Black

I've had mine for over a year still working well,however it is not heavy duty so you have to be a bit gentle with it

u/tiffi_333 · 3 pointsr/1200isplenty

This is the cheapest on says $14 for people who dont want to click) buying American products like that on there is usually too expensive to be worth it. The really good products end up being made up here after a year or so, either by them being available or a different brand making basically the same thing. It took longer than I thought for halo top knockoffs but it's happened. They're all too pricey for me for a pint and the icecream I get isn't much higher than halo top for the plain flavours so I didn't mind much with that though.

u/domoniquelauren · 7 pointsr/1200isplenty

Cooking spray is only LISTED as 0 calories if you use a 1/3 of one second spray. It still has calories and most people usually use more. I always log it for 9 calories/ 1 second spray.

That being said it is a very good way to use MUCH less oil to cover a bigger surface area. I don't know if the sell it in Sweden but you can get a mister bottle like this to make your own!

u/jwanders71 · 20 pointsr/1200isplenty

I've got [this one] ( - it's the one recommended on the LoseIt sub and I've been happy with it so far, especially for the price.

u/ElephantTeeth · 6 pointsr/1200isplenty

These 8 inch tortillas are only 50 calories, and still have a nice soft semi-fluffy texture. I wish they’d make a 10 inch...

u/geocentricmodel · 2 pointsr/1200isplenty

I use this one and it works well. Sweet potatoes sometimes take more finesse to work through without stripping the grips, but totally worth it.

u/bbo1014 · 1 pointr/1200isplenty

I, too, have an issue with over eating Peanut Butter. It's so tasty!

So, I found a peanut powder on Amazon a few months back. It has no additives. It is simply Peanuts. I must admit that the taste isn't top of the line, but it has no sugar, salt, or any other additives. I will add some salt or any other flavorings to give a more delectable flavor.

Here is the link to the product.

u/thaaatguy · 12 pointsr/1200isplenty

Looks like this one, which I have and really like.

u/tomyownrhythm · 12 pointsr/1200isplenty

I love Appetite for Reduction, a vegan cookbook by Isa Chandra Moscowitz.

u/Sozin · 26 pointsr/1200isplenty

You should check out Protein Plus Peanut Flour; I'm a peanut butter fiend and this stuff is just great, especially given that you can get 32oz for $12.

u/nocontactnotpossible · 7 pointsr/1200isplenty

Ok so the black 3 section container is from Amazon, you can get a set of like 15 for around $15 and it's been lifechanging!

u/bobapanda · 2 pointsr/1200isplenty

We have these ones which are convenient 3-compartment meal prep containers, and also something similar to this Snapware set that we got on sale from Costco a while back. Lots of different sizes and shapes for different kinds of foods! They also have a glass instead of plastic version. Both options are microwave safe!

u/TransFatty · 2 pointsr/1200isplenty

I bought some on Amazon. This is the kind I got. I think it tastes the same as PB2, but it doesn't have any sugar in it. If you like the PB2, this unit is a lot more flour and costs more than the little jar of PB2, but it's cheaper per ounce because you're buying in bulk.

u/kbeherec · 1 pointr/1200isplenty

> The mandolin was a bit of a pain, but not so much that I'll spring for a spiralizer.

I was also hesitant to buy a spiralizer. I used my mandolin for a long time. Now, I love my Veggetti. Only $12 on Amazon!

u/CompetitionEater · 3 pointsr/1200isplenty

I bought this one off of amazon because is was cheap, and it works fine. Sorry for the gross link, I'm on mobile.
To some extent, they should all be the same. I like having multiple units, though (my last scale was analog), it makes logging stuff into MFP easier.

u/TheAdjunctTavore · 2 pointsr/1200isplenty

It is slightly more specialty. I order mine from amazon. It is like $14 for a large bag or $6 for a small bag and lasts for months. You can also find sugar free pbfit in many stores, but that has added monk fruit and salt and is much pricier.

u/sillyrubbish · 4 pointsr/1200isplenty

Get a spiralzer and make zoodles aka zucchini noodles! You can spin though a couple of zucchini in minutes and have a full plate of noodles to cook quickly.

This is the spiralizer I have:

Easy recipie to cook the zoodles:

u/therinlahhan · 11 pointsr/1200isplenty

Found it at BJ's Wholesale Club (which is a price club like Sam's Club, but they have slightly higher tier food). Haven't looked for it elsewhere, but I'd check out your local upper tier grocers -- Kroger, Harris Teeter, Publix, etc.

Or you can buy it on Amazon, because that's not weird or anything...

This is the scale I use.

I’m going to try and eat less sodium and see if that helps!

u/lasagnaparfait · 5 pointsr/1200isplenty

I see these at giant food stores near the deli. I tried the spinach one and couldn't finish them, they're awful in my opinion. There's a few other brands that I prefer with less net carbs.

Joseph's (my favorite)

Please don't buy that from Amazon though, I get the same package for about $4 at Giant. I posted it for the nutritional info. Also they actually taste like lavash/pita!

u/Jynxers · 3 pointsr/1200isplenty

There are a bunch of well-rated ones on Amazon in the $10-$15 range. I have this Ozeri one and it's fine.

u/ashtree35 · 3 pointsr/1200isplenty

Most food scales are very similar and measure to the nearest gram. That amount of accuracy should be plenty. Anything more accurate than that wouldn’t even be very helpful, because there is a margin of error for reported calorie counts of various foods anyway.

I use this one and it’s works well.

u/oneelectricsheep · 9 pointsr/1200isplenty

I bought this scale and it's maybe a centimeter thick 20 cm long and about 15 cm wide. They're more affordable and portable than you'd think. It's a worthwhile investment imo.

u/brunchowl · 1 pointr/1200isplenty

I believe it is this lil guy. Never had a problem with it. I also have an Etekcity one for my office which works fine too.

You can get it on Amazon! I am in the Midwest where it's in every little grocery store, but I've ordered it online when it was out.



u/hugsy_is_babe · 1 pointr/1200isplenty

I got it at shop and stop. I heard you can get it at Costco too. you can find it here

It’s like 180 calories per serving and 25gms protein!

u/bizaromo · 1 pointr/1200isplenty

Cast iron skillet, and a teaspoon of olive oil or butter. Or a spritz from a misto.

You can fill with the oil of your choice.

Calorie-free pan stray isn't actually calorie free. The serving size is just so small that they are legally allowed to list it as 0 calories. It's just regular oil in a spray can. You can just buy [this] ( and use your own oil. That's what we do in my house.

u/OppressedCactus · 3 pointsr/1200isplenty

I just have this Oxo one (mine has two blades). It's the only one I've ever used so I can't say if it's amazing compared to others or anything, but it works just fine for me! I've used it a billion times for zoodles, and another time to make a "different looking" cucumber salad. I think that particular one wouldn't be great if you had to make a bunch for a lot of people, but for one dish it's no problem.

Welcome to the world of zoodles!

u/cedric456 · 2 pointsr/1200isplenty

Appetite for Reduction is vegan low cal cooking

A lot of the recipes are below 300 calories.

u/threefer · 1 pointr/1200isplenty

My recommendation for a kitchen scale:

It's lasted me around 8 months this far and is very accurate. Just a tip for portion control: most nutritional facts have the weight in grams so it's easy to figure out the calories accurately.

Edit: I recommend putting a plate on it, zeroing the scale, and weighing the food. It also does negative grams so you could see how much you could see how much you took out of a container.

u/badhoneylips · 70 pointsr/1200isplenty

I know you didn't ask me, but I literally typed "Skater bento" into Amazon's search and it was the first one on there. I know we're running on low calories but c'mon.

u/tinytaiga · 6 pointsr/1200isplenty

[I just purchased this one!] (

I had searched a bit on here and read some reviews. I really like it. It's simple, runs on batteries, small enough to put away (I have a small kitchen with limited counter space), AND! the screen stays on for 2 whole minutes. The previous one I had plugged into the wall. The display would shut off after maybe 20 seconds. That caused problems when I was constantly taring and adding stuff to the same bowl. NOT ANYMORE!

u/dunielle · 4 pointsr/1200isplenty

That sucks! Can you still return it? Amazon is pretty good about working with you and that just sounds broken :(

I bought this one and I can’t complain yet. Basic but got the job done and has high reviews...
