Weight Loss Tips, Low Calorie Recipes for Sweet Treats
Many times, sweet treats can contain sweet little calories, too - so when dieting, the concentration is placed on weight loss results and if too many sweet treats are part of the daily diet, then it's going to be difficult to shave off those unwanted pounds.
Therefore, the dieter must make some very wise choices in the area of inviting sweets into their weight loss plan. When planning for sweet treats - think small. Think flavor. Think about lower calorie choices that can replace higher calorie choices.
For example, let's say that Todd is a caramel lover. He likes to drizzle it onto ice cream, cake and even some flavors of pie. But as he is dieting, he can't enjoy a lot of cake, pie and ice cream.
But he can satisfy his caramel cravings by reaching for a tiny disc of candy - such as a Werther's Original. For twenty tiny calories he can allow the disc to slowly dissolve into his mouth while he savors the flavor of caramel.
Let's assume that Becky is on a weight loss plan and she is craving chocolate. Dark chocolate. A dark Hershey's chocolate kiss might come to her rescue - and again, she can allow it to melt slowly in her mouth.
What about Doris who loves cheesecake? What contains fewer calories and can be substituted for her craving? Doris might love the JELL-O instant cheesecake pudding that is available in the sugar free form.
Some foods however can be surprising. For example, a serving of light, low fat sugar free topping contains about 15 calories per serving. For the identical serving amount - a dieter can enjoy real whipped cream that is the reduced-fat variety for the same number of calories.
And finally, let's take a look at George. He is missing cake. Vanilla cake. He adores powdered sugar. What oh what can he enjoy as a substitution? His regular slice of cake with frosting in his former diet contained 400 calories. He can only spare around 100 calories in his weight loss menu.
At this point, George has two great options that won't blow his weight loss plan. He can enjoy our skinny shake recipe above which contains the cake donuts - with powdered sugar OR he can simply enjoy two of the donuts for about 100 calories.
