Are you on a diet or thinking about going on one, but horrified at the thought of the agony of de-sweets (as in not being able to eat any)? Never fear, eDiets is here with a list of delicious desserts and snacks, all of which have 50 calories or fewer:
Fruit Bars -- These are healthy alternatives to popsicles. Various companies put out bars made of fruit juice and/or fruit pulp without added sugar, which you can find in your grocer's freezer. They're usually about 30 to 50 calories each.

Cinnamon Sugar Popcorn -- Make 4 cups of popcorn and put it in a bowl. Add 3 packets of Splenda or Equal, 1 teaspoon of cinnamon, 1 tablespoon of light brown sugar and 1 melted tablespoon of your favorite brand of zero-calorie butter substitute. Mix it all up and you have four servings of one delicious snack. Be a mensch and share it with your buddies. Each serving has about 50 calories.
Root Beer Float -- Fill a tumbler about 3/4 of the way with diet root beer, then drop in a 1/4 cup of light vanilla ice cream. It tastes darn close to the "real thing," and it comes in at right about 50 calories.
Eight Large Strawberries -- If unadulterated strawberries aren't sweet enough for you, cut it back to five and cover them with two teaspoons of confectioner's sugar. Either way, you're looking at only around 45 to 49 calories. Strawberries are berry, berry good to you!
Jelly Toast -- It's not just for breakfast anymore! Toast a slice of bread (preferably whole-grain) and coat with that zero-cal butter substitute we talked about earlier. Spread a teaspoon of your favorite jam or jelly on it. Bada-bing, bada-boom: 50 quick calories.
Gelatin Drink -- Get a box of sugar-free gelatin, whatever flavor you please. Prepare the mix as directed, but instead of refrigerating to solidify it, simply drink it. It's surprisingly filling, and only about 10 to 40 calories, depending on the brand.
