When you are on diet, hunger pangs can hit you anytime. In such a situation you need to search for healthy alternates which won't add up to your calorie count. Here are some healthy food items which you can consume to kill those hunger pangs with just 100 calories or fewer.

1. Almonds
Almonds can help you deal with hunger quickly. You can consume 14 almonds to satisfy your stomach without adding a total of 100 calories. Almonds will also provide other health benefits like improved mental health, better cardiovascular health and balanced blood sugar levels. Almonds will also help you successfully lose weight because it will keep you full for longer.

2. Orange
Orange has a great taste and it is loaded with essential vitamins and fiber. Two medium sized oranges or one large orange will add up to only 60 calories. You can easily find an orange and consume it without giving a second thought. The tangy taste of orange will also lift your mood.

3. 1 Hard-Boiled Egg
Boil up a batch of eggs, put them in the fridge, and you've got an instant snack that packs 6 grams of protein into just 78 calories. I recommend a high-protein snack such as eggs for a midmorning or afternoon time- the protein will keep you full and may help prevent overeating later.

4. 1/2 Cup of Oatmeal
When the afternoon slump rolls around, toss some oats into the microwave. A 1/2-cup serving of oatmeal cooked in water contains just 83 calories. Finish with a sprinkle of cinnamon, which helps keep blood-sugar levels stable. With a dose of fiber and protein, the warm snack is sure to satisfy and hold you over until dinnertime.
