Dessert remains a temptation for everyone, not just those trying to lose weight. If you are taking Phentermine 37.5mg pills as part of your newfound weight loss efforts, you are probably wondering if it is okay to eat dessert, and if so how much. Experts have weighed in (pun intended) on this subject to help you determine when you can have your cake and eat it too.
Giving It Up Entirely Is Not Necessary
“It’s not realistic to tell people to never eat dessert; that’s not something I expect of my clients, or myself!” says Rachel Meltzer Warren, R.D.N., a Jersey City, NJ-based registered dietitian and nutritionist.
She suggests enjoying dessert once or twice a week so long as you keep portion control in mind.
“What I see with clients is that it’s all about resetting your habits so that when you do eat a doughnut or cupcake, you really appreciate and enjoy it,” Meltzer Warren notes. “When sugary treats are your default sweet food and you eat them every day, you overdo the calories and the enjoyment of the treat barely registers anymore.”
Swapping traditional desserts for healthier options is one of the best ways to combat the dessert problem.
“If you have a sweet tooth, think about the area where you tend to overdo it,” Meltzer Warren says.
For example, you could switch your nightly dessert for fruit or or herbal tea. When you do indulge, really savor that cake or ice cream and make certain it is a high-quality, delicious option. You don’t want to wait all week to enjoy a cookie and find you do not even like it!
