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.

7. Baked Cheetos (Frito-Lay)

If you crave crunchy snack foods, Baked Cheetos offer a tasty alternative with fewer calories and half the fat. Unlike many other "baked" chips, these really do taste like regular Cheetos.

Calorie Savings: By choosing these instead of regular Cheetos, you save30 calories and 5 grams of fat per ounce.

A 1-oz. serving (about 34 pieces) has 130 calories, 2 g protein, 19 g carbohydrate, 5 g fat, 1 g saturated fat, 2.5 g polyunsaturated fat, 1.5 g monounsaturated fat, 0 g trans, 0 mg cholesterol, 0 g fiber, 240 mg sodium. Calories from fat: 34.5%.

8. Gorton’s Grilled Shrimp Scampi

This product offers a low-calorie alternative to the breaded and fried shrimp you'll find on the seafood shelf in the frozen food aisle. Here's a bonus: It also has considerably more protein. Because breaded shrimp contains less actual shrimp per serving, a 3.5 ounce serving only contains 7-10 grams of protein, while this grilled shrimp offers 19 grams of protein per 4-ounce serving.

Calorie Savings: By buying this instead of Gorton’s Bear Batter Shrimp, you save 110 calories, 7.5 g fat, and 2.5 g saturated fat per serving.
