This is the most obvious healthy snack so when you're craving that sweet treat and looking for one of the most simple snack swaps for weight loss, reach not for the candy bar but for the fruit bowl. If you don't have one yet, why not buy a fruit bowl for the office and take it in turns to fill it. Being surrounded by healthy foods will remind you to eat healthier. Dried fruits are another great option, whether it's figs, dates or prunes. Don't go crazy with the dried variety as their sugar is more concentrated than their hydrated counterparts, but three or four pieces of dried fruit as a snack wont do you any harm.
