It happens to almost every single dieter out there.
You are going about your diet plan, doing everything practically perfectly and then a craving strikes.
Perhaps it is for a piece of chocolate cake.
Maybe for some cookies.
Or you could be craving the largest slice of cheesecake on the face of the planet.
Whatever your sweet tooth wants, you have a craving for food you should not have
And that is all you can think about.
So what can you do?
Do you let this strong feeling cause you to veer off your diet, enjoy every second of it while you indulge?
But then deal with the feelings of guilt after?
If that is your typical course of action, you need to set a better pattern in place.
Rather than feeling miserable about satisfying your love of dessert, why not think up a healthier option?
If you get creative, there are plenty of choices out there that you can dig into instead.
1. Protein Pudding
Prepare a box of low-sugar, fat-free pudding according to package directions, adding a scoop of chocolate protein powder into the mix.
2. Fruit With Vanilla Yogurt
Dress up healthy fruit with vanilla yogurt.
But do not use the pre-flavored kind, which is full of added sugar.
Simply mix one cup of chopped fruit with 1/2 cup plain non-fat yogurt and 1/2 teaspoon of. pure vanilla extract.
3. Oatmeal Balls
Mix oatmeal, protein powder, honey and natural peanut butter into small balls.
Before serving as a protein-packed sweet treat.
4. 1 Ounce Of Dark Chocolate
Dark chocolate contains plenty of antioxidants and is a healthy choice as long as you consume in moderation.
5. Hot Chocolate
Prepare a mug of hot chocolate.
With 8 oz. low-fat milk, use chocolate protein powder rather than the sugar-filled cocoa mix.
6. Mock Cheesecake
Starting with reduced-fat cream cheese, add some low-calorie sweetener like stevia, a small amount of Greek yogurt and a swirl of natural fruit spread (essentially a no-sugar-added jam).
7. Chocolate Milkshake
Prepare a healthy shake using one scoop of chocolate protein powder, 1/2 cup Greek yogurt, 1/2 cup skim milk, 1/2 tsp. vanilla extract, 2–3 ice cubes and 1/2 tsp. Xanthan gum.
It will be thick just like the real thing.
8. Baked Cinnamon Apples
Slice up an apple, sprinkle with cinnamon and powdered low-calorie sweetener, and place in the oven to bake for 5–10 minutes or until tender.
9. Sweet Potato Fries
Cut up a sweet potato, sprinkle with cinnamon and a small amount of brown sugar.
Then bake until crispy.
10. Protein Crepes
Combine a scoop of unflavored protein powder with 2 egg whites and cook like a typical pancake.
Smear with peanut butter and top with a sliced banana.
The Bottom Line:
Little did you know you could have so many dessert choices even as you go about your weight loss diet plan.
But if you select these rather than the typical high-sugar, high-calorie choices, you can easily satisfy your cravings while hardly making a dent in your diet plan.
Just remember to account for the calories in your total intake.
This way, you will easily be able to give into temptation from time to time so your appetite stays in check for the long haul.
