Poll Results

It is no suprise that most of us crave sweets. These types of foods can be loaded with empty calories and wreak havoc on our diet. Here are some helpful tip to control that sweet tooth.
  1. Try fruit. Fruit has natural sugar and if you include it in your diet, you are less likely to crave sugar.
  2. Set aside 150 calories per day for sweets. Portion control is key. An ounce of chocolate, a half of piece of cake, 25 jelly beans, or 1/2 cup of regular ice cream.
  3. Be careful of sugary beverages. These can really add up. Look for reduced calorie juices, teas and sugar free hot cocoa.
  4. Fruit with a little whipped cream makes a great dessert.
  5. Try sugarless gum.
  6. If you want a full dessert, make sure to have a light lunch and dinner full of lean protein and vegetables.
