Well, I don't know what plan you follow, so that would make a big difference.

I calorie count, and try to be healthy, so I can eat whatever I want, but have to pay close attention to portion control.

Exactly what I was thinking! Yes, pickles are allowed, as in they are legal, but whether or not they fit into your plan depends on, well, your plan!

Why wouldn't pickles or peppers be okay? They are sour (which can reduce sugar craving), low calorie and just vegetables.

This is just me - but when I was losing weight, there was absolutely no limit to the vegetables/fruit I wanted. If I wanted a whole bag of sugar snap peas, I ate a whole bag of sugar snap peas. I didn't deny myself anything healthy, if the food were nutritionally powerful and good for me, it was on the "definitely okay" list.

I don't think anyone ever said "wow, I'm overweight because I ate all those PICKLES." I knew I was overweight because I started every morning with nearly 800 calories of huge lattes with whipped cream and a big old 38 gram of fat muffin, then I had pizza for lunch and M&Ms or yogurt pretzels out of the snack machine and another latte with a danish or coffee cake, then stopped for taco bell on the way home and polished off a huge bowl of godiva dark chocolate ice cream in front of the TV every night.

The only thing I would watch is the sodium content. If you eat alot of them, the salt might cause you to retain water. But other than that, enjoy. They make a nice addition to a salad.

I thought pickles were a "free" food in almost all diet plans...no?
