Try these strategic snacks for losing weight and keeping blood sugar in check.
Though it's not as high in protein as cottage cheese or peanut butter, cream cheese is a soft, spreadable cheese that can be a satisfying addition to a snack of celery sticks (or another crisp veggie). Regular cream cheese is very high in fat, so make sure to choose a reduced-fat brand and limit your portion to two tablespoons.
