13 Diet Foods Worth Buying

Low-calorie foods that really do taste good.

3. Boca Original Meatless Chick’n Patties continued...

Calorie Savings: By buying this instead of breaded frozen chicken patties, you save at least 20 calories, 5 grams of fat, and 2.5 grams saturated fat per patty.

One patty (71 g) has 160 calories, 11 g protein, 15 g carbohydrate, 6 g fat, 0 g saturated fat, 0 g trans, 1 g polyunsaturated fat, 3.5 g monounsaturated fat, 0 mg cholesterol, 2 g fiber, 430 mg sodium. Calories from fat: 34%.

Main Ingredients: Water, soy protein concentrate, soy protein isolate, textured wheat protein, yeast extract.

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.
