5 Calorie Dessert
Saturday, February 12, 2011
Sometimes (a lot!) I want something sweet after dinner. I'm not hungry, but still want a little something. I saw a product-placement type embedded commercial on the Biggest Loser suggesting that Extra Dessert Delights gum be chewed when you want a sweet treat, so I thought I'd give it a try. Turns out it's true! I chew a piece of tasty gum and my sweet tooth is actually satisfied. It makes sense, because I'm not really hungry, just craving, so a little sweetness does the trick!
I've had the mint chocolate chip and the key lime and both are very tasty. The mint chocolate chip tastes kind of like Andes mints. The key lime is fruity and sweet-tart. There's also another flavor...strawberry shortcake or cheesecake (I can't remember), but I haven't tried that one yet.
Not to say that I still don't want actual dessert now and then, but for most days this gum has been a great trick. Do you use any diet tricks that really help you that you'd be willing to share? I could use all the help I can get!
