Swap Fruit for Dessert

Always crave something sweet after a meal? Have a piece of fruit to satisfy your sweet tooth with a lot less calories. “Fruit is a great alternative to sugary desserts. To retrain your taste buds, try avoiding sugar for a couple days. When you reintroduce fruit into your diet, it’ll really taste like dessert,” says Batayneh. Instead of a piece of apple pie, try a baked apple with cinnamon. You’ll still enjoy the flavor, but with about 290 less calories. You can even add a half-cup serving of ice cream on top and still shed 14 extra pounds this year!
