Top Desserts To Choose For Fat Loss Success
Let’s face it, cravings are a part of the diet game and each and every one of us is going to experience them at some point or another.
If you feel like you’re immune to cravings, you’re mistaken, so having an action plan for when they strike will be of critical importance.
Fortunately, as long as you eat well most of the time, indulging once in a while won’t set you back too much and if you choose your indulgences wisely, you can really minimize the damage.
Let’s go over some of the top dessert choices that you should consider to calm those cravings but keep total calorie count under control.
Home Made Puddings
The first dessert to turn to is home made puddings. These are great because they come in a variety of flavors and if you prepare them with skim milk, they really won’t pack much fat at all.
While they do contain sugar (unless you get the sugar free varieties), their calorie count is still relatively low overall, so they can be worked into any diet plan.
Top the pudding with some fresh berries to boost the antioxidant content and you’ll have a great tasting dessert that will actually provide health benefits.
Pure Dark Chocolate
Second, if you have a craving chocolate that just won’t quit, go for a few squares of pure dark chocolate. This variation of chocolate does contain a number of nutrients that are healthy for your body, so you can feel good about this indulgence.
As long as you don’t go overboard and eat two full bars of chocolate, it’s not a bad addition to your day by any means.
Many people who have great control over their eating can easily work one square of dark chocolate into their everyday diet plan so that you can indulge 7 days a week.
If you need to get some cake, carrot cake tends to be one of the better varieties to choose. While it still can get quite high in calories depending on how it’s made, it will contain added nutrients because of the carrot content, so you will get that benefit.
And, it won’t contain as many calories as a traditional chocolate cake or cheesecake, so superior over those two varieties as well.
Packaged Oatmeal Cookies
Finally, if you’re a cookie monster and nothing short of some cookies will satisfy your craving, choose packaged oatmeal cookies.
The oatmeal they contain will at least provide some good calories to the body as well as fiber and because they are packaged, they’ll typically be smaller than the ones you purchase from the bakery.
You’ll be looking at around 75-150 calories per cookie if you go this route compared to 300-400 from the bakery style.
So keep these quick tips in mind as you select your dessert and you can satisfy your sweet tooth and still maintain your overall diet plan.
