13 Diet Foods Worth Buying

Low-calorie foods that really do taste good.

4. Mousse Temptations Chocolate Indulgence Sugar Free

If you're a fan of chocolate mousse but you don’t want to invest more than 60 calories, this new sugar-free pudding cup might do the trick. It has a mousse-like texture and a nice chocolate flavor. Each cup does contain 6 grams of sugar alcohol, so only enjoy one serving at a time, particularly if you're sensitive to the intestinal side effects of sugar alcohols.

Calorie Savings: By choosing this instead of 1/2 cup of restaurant-style chocolate mousse, you save 390 calories, 25 g fat, 16 g saturated fat, 22 g carbohydrate, and 270 mg cholesterol.

One snack cup has 60 calories, 2 g protein, 10 g carbohydrate (6 grams sugar alcohol), 3 g fat, 2 g saturated fat, 0 g trans, 10 mg cholesterol, <1 g fiber, 100 mg sodium. Calories from fat: 45%.

Main ingredients: Water, xylitol, cream, cocoa, modified food starch.

5. Yoplait Delights Parfait 1% Low Fat Yogurt, Lemon Torte

If you feel like treating yourself to something lemony and luscious, take a look at this new yogurt dessert. (It also comes in three other flavors: Chocolate Raspberry, Crème Caramel, and Triple Berry Crème.) Sugar is the second ingredient, but it also uses two alternative sweeteners (sucrolose and acesulfame potassium), and the parfaits are fortified with vitamins A and D.

Calorie Savings: By eating this instead of a small slice of lemon meringue pie, you save at least 200 calories, 9 grams of fat, and 37 grams of carbohydrate.

A 4-oz. container has 100 calories, 5 g protein, 16 g carbohydrate, 1.5 g fat, 1 g saturated fat, 5 mg cholesterol, 80 mg sodium. Calories from fat: 13.5%.

Main Ingredients: Cultured pasteurized low-fat milk, sugar, modified cornstarch, nonfat milk, and lemon pulp.

6. Ocean Spray Diet Cranberry Pomegranate (with Splenda)

This diet cranberry drink doesn’t have zero calories but it comes close. Made with cranberry, pomegranate and carrot juice, and sweetened with Splenda, it has a nice light flavor. It also provides 100% of the Daily Value for vitamin C.

Calorie Savings: By buying this instead of regular Cran-Pomegranate Ocean Spray, you save 115 calories and 28 grams of carbohydrate per cup. 

One cup has 5 calories, 0 g protein, 2 g carbohydrate, 0 g fat, 50 mg sodium.

Main Ingredients: Filtered water, cranberry juice from concentrate, pomegranate juice from concentrate, carrot juice from concentrate, natural flavors.
