#4: Cookies
Yes, low-fat products have less fat in them, but they usually pump in more sugar to help with flavor. So forget low fat and stick with cookies that don’t use partially hydrogenated oil in the recipe. “At 60 calories per cookie, Chewy Chips Ahoy is a decent selection so long as you use portion control.” says Alyse. In other words, don’t inhale the entire cookie sleeve in one sitting. Also, if you dip it in milk, make it fat-free milk.
