Any macronutrient can make you gain weight if you eat in excess. Whether it be fat, carbs (sugar in candy) or protein... so fat doesn't make you fat, carbs don't make you fat, what makes you gain weight is overeating. Fat has a bad name because it's calorie dense and if you're not counting calories could cause you to eat more than you're burning. Carbs (particularly sugar/refined grains) have a bad name because it causes insulin spikes and burns away quickly causing you to feel hungry again shortly after which can lead to overeating.

TBH, I'd rather have a fatty dessert over a sugary one. At least the fatty one is going to fill me up better and not cause a sugar crash. Too much sugar gives me a hangover the next day and leaves me feeling like crap. I don't experience the same thing when I eat a lot of fat.

My favourite dessert in the evening is plain Greek yogurt mixed with some pudding powder (which I wouldn't claim is the healthiest thing in the world, but I like it and I eat it) and unsweetened vanilla almond milk. Some berries and/or banana, natural crunchy peanut butter and some Kashi Go Lean, High Fiber, High Protein cereal sprinkled on top.

Frozen Greek yogurt with natural crunchy peanut butter.

Or a black bean brownie which is basically black beans, mashed banana, olive oil, unsweetened cocoa powder, vanilla extract, etc. Or a Snickerdoodle blondie made from chickpeas and natural peanut butter.

Anything involving pumpkin puree and peanut butter; French toast (yes, to me it's a dessert!), puddings, homemade muffins/bread.

A baked Reese's PB Cup oatmeal- it's like an oat cake. Unsweetened cocoa powder, mashed banana or unsweetened applesauce, oats, almond milk and natural peanut butter in the middle. I make a frosting with cocoa powder, real maple syrup, almond milk and natural peanut butter to drizzle on top.

In case you haven't noticed... peanut butter is my treat. Love that stuff. Definitely not low fat. ;)


Take your focus off the Marshmallow.

"Toning" is marketing muscles to women who are afraid if they pick up a barbell, they'll leave the gym looking like She-Hulk. It doesn't happen, what does happen is you get results. Lifting Barbie weights does nothing but waste time.

Low fat usually means high sugar. Candy is not a healthy food, heck it's not even food. It's a food product and it's not good for you.

Eat high fat or low fat as long as it's an actual food then you will get healthier.

Any processed item that is fat free is likely to be very high in sugar/carbs and full of artificial ingredients.

Why not just have a piece of fruit or a cup of ripe berries? Or make a smoothie--3/4 C of frozen fruit, plus the same amount of dairy or soy milk and a dash of sweetener...yummy, filling, cool, full of nutrition and low in fat!

Frozen Fruit blended with almond milk. Especially banana's! Cottage cheese can be flavored all kinds of ways too!

Which makes me wonder what the heck is in red licorice that makes it so high-cal - just a ton of sugar I guess! I had a piece just the other day and was really surprised when reading the nutritional information panel - it doesn't taste like it should have as many calories in it, as it actually does!

Red Licorice is fat-free!

**LINDA**

Weight loss is accomplished with the mind.


A person who wants something WILL find a way....a person who doesn't will find an excuse.

Which do you prefer?
The pain of self discipline?....or...the pain of self regret?

I go for the sugar free dark chocolate pudding cups, 60 calories. But my all time favorite is of course fruit!

My favorite is the sugar-free chocolate (cooked) Jello pudding made with 1% milk. 1/2 cup serving comes in around 70 calories and is pretty satisfying.

Keep a sense of humor. Remember, laughing burns calories too!

Laugh until it hurts! It's one of the few things in life that's still free!!

Any effort is better than no effort!
