Little japanese snacks (like rice crackers and peanuts) that you can find packed in tiny individual packages. **Individually packed servings help a lot**

Small amounts of nuts/seeds....filling and good for you
crudites...raw peapods, carrot sticks, cucumber sticks, celery sticks etc (chop up aload at the beggining of the day and eat them when you feel hungry) nice on their own or with some low fat hummus.
Rice cakes with cottage cheese and grapes/cherry tomatoes on top.
Oatcakes with a bit of hummus/spread.

I think the tabasco flavored ones are made by Dill... I don't know, whatever the largest manufacturer of pickles is. Here in the Chicago, I Know Jewel carries them.

Fruits and veggies. Never take anything thats artificial, even an atkins or whatever bar. Naturals are the best low carb or low cal snacks ever.

Aren't raisins low-calorie? I think they're good if you like them...and sugar-free pastilles.

Correction: VLASTIC is the brand. Duh.

Raisins have a lot of calories, but they're still a good snack because they have a lot of iron, which is necessary for women. I like to have a cup of coffee or tea if I'm really hungry, it takes away my appetite even though I'll still be hungry like an hour later. Water with a slice of lime or lemon is good too when you're hungry.

I love ricecakes by themselves, but only slightly salty thin kind.
Eat low-glycemic index meals/snacks so that they fill you up longer, or at least that's what I've read.

^ Actually, plain popcorn is very low calorie, and high in fiber... course, once you start adding all of that salt and butter, etc., the good quotient seems to be depleted.

A soup that I love to make; very low cal, and you can add pretty much what you want to it. When you're hungry just heat up however much you want. I like to put: A can of chopped tomatoes, carrots (usually 3ish), 1 onion, 1 or 2 courgettes, a couple of sticks of celery, a stock cube, black pepper, tomato puree (if you're a bit of a tomato-holic like me), usually a red/orange/yellow sweet pepper. I just chop everything up and stick it in a pan for about 30mins. So easy to make, and nice and filling.

You could also presoak lentils and put those in, especially good if you're a vegetarian. Sweet potato, squash, parsnip ( I sometimes put one in to give a bit of extra flavour).

Oh and I usually blend mine after it's cooked.

rice cakes do not a proper lunch make! If you are trying to be slim and keep your cals low, I understand, but there is barely any nutrition in rice cakes alone. I don't know if you were just speaking figuratively, but if you really only eat 10 rice cakes for lunch, that is 35 cals a piece x 10 = 350 cals. There are almost endless options for a 350 calorie lunch that provide a lot more nutrients than rice cakes do! They don't even provide much fiber. Even if you got a low fat sandwich from subway it might be less than that but you'd get veggies too. (Check online for exact info). If you got a colorful salad and skipped the dressing, you would be WAY under 350 cals and you'd get a lot more vitamins and minerals and fiber. I don't know where you live, but where I live there is a fast food chain that sells grilled chicken sandwiches that are only 270 cals including the bun and condiments (I searched online). There you get lean protein, grains, and a slice of tomato and some greens. I know rice cake are good as a snack though, just be careful that you don't restrict too much and make them your whole meal. Sorry for my preachiness! I only do it because I care . You can still be thin without living on rice cakes!
