13 Diet Foods Worth Buying

Low-calorie foods that really do taste good.

9. JELL-O Sugar Free Fat Free Instant Pudding, Cheesecake Flavor

This product is a pleasant blend of pudding texture and cheesecake flavor. JELL-O has been making sugar free pudding, sweetened with aspartame, for years now, but this is one of their finest flavors.

Calorie Savings: By eating this instead of regular instant pudding, you save 83 calories, 17 g sugar, 2 g fat, and 1.5 g saturated fat per 1/2 cup serving.

A 1/2-cup serving (prepared with skim milk) has 68 calories, 4 g protein, 12 g sugar, 0.2 g fat, 0.1 g saturated fat, 2 mg cholesterol, 0 g fiber, 374 mg sodium.

Main Ingredients: Modified food starch, maltodextrin, tetrasodium pyrophosphate and disodium phosphate (for thickening), nonfat milk, natural and artificial flavor.

10. Low Calorie G2 Electrolyte Beverage (by Gatorade), Fruit Punch flavor

Looking for a great-tasting sports drink that has all the electrolytes and nutrients but half the calories? The search is over with the Fruit Punch flavor of the G2 beverages. It is a pleasure to drink, with not too much sweetness but just enough flavor to satisfy.
