Do people really not eat dessert?
Ok, so getting to the point of my post. I love sweets, so I indulge in dessert more nights than I probably should. But since most of my life, I have just been maintaining my healthy weight, I felt like it was ok. My go to dessert is ice cream (Breyer's Light Mint Chocolate Chip to be exact). I try to keep my portions small, but I know my serving is always more than the half cup recommended. And then sometimes we have organic semisweet chocolate chips that might find there way into the bowl. :)
I was looking at one of my favorite message boards last night and one of the daily posts is planned eating and exercising for the day. I was noticing that almost no one said anything about eating after dinner, i.e. no dessert. Now, not all of these people are trying to lose weight. Actually I would say that most people that answer to the post are just maintaining their weight. What? Are none of these people eating dessert?
I eat breakfast, lunch, a snack, and dinner. I eat dinner between 6 and 7pm. I would get hungry if I tried to make it until the next morning to eat again. Since I am breastfeeding I feel like I shouldn't go that long between meals. Is that correct? Would I be ok not to eat? If I should eat something, what are some better choices for evening snacks?
What do you do when you are trying to lose some weight?
