Updated on April 13, 2012

Dr Oz Approved Snacks for Dieters

Are you looking to loose some weight but feel like you are constantly foiled by your craving for snacks? Want some healthy options that won't break the calorie bank? Dr Oz frequently recommends alternatives to the high calorie snack options that we crave. Take a look below for some of his recent recommendations, and find the salty or sweet snack that will satisfy your cravings while keeping you on track with your weight loss goals.

Mini-Meals on the Go

While it is best to always sit and enjoy your food leisurely, sometimes you just need to grab something and go. These grab-and-go snacks are easy, require little prep and are low in calories. Make sure to keep extra on hand for those days when you have little time for a healthy sit-down meal.

Replace your Chips with Seaweed - A healthier, salty, crunchy snack

Dr Oz recently recommended ht guest replace her chips with dried seaweed. This salty snack has considerably less crunch, but also far less calories and grams of fat. I recently made the switch myself, and find that some of the seasoned options on the market are even tastier than chips. And no greasy fingers!

Best of all, seaweed is high in potassium, iron, calcium, iodine and magnesium and is one of the few vegetable sources of vitamin B-12.

3 tbsp pop corn kernels

1 tbsp grated parmesan cheese

1 tsp garlic powder

1 tsp paprika

1 tsp oregano

1 tsp salt

1tsp chives

SeaBear Smoked Salmon Jerky, 1.25-Ounce Units (Pack of 4)

Salmon is rich in Omega-3s which are a heart healthy fatty oil. Try replacing your craving for beef jerky - full of saturated fat - with this more heart-healthy, but equally satisfying salty, chewy treat.
