Today I thought I would share some if my favorite tricks to fight and satisf sweet cravings without actually sinning.
Some of the snacks are perfect for TV moments because that is when we tend to eat most.
Diet Soda is super low in calories and it lasts for quite a while so it’s a good TV snack too. It also helps to satisfy a sweet craving after a meal. My personal favorite: RedBull SF.
Even chewing gum which is not sugarfree is pretty low in calories and can totally satisfy a sweet tooth. It also keeps your mouth busy while watching TV, sitting at the computer or wherever you tend to eat.
Lolli Pops are a great alternative to cookies and chocolate with only around 50 cals per piece. It also takes quite a while to be “eaten”.
Especially when I’m working at the computer a big bottle of sparkling water can totally hold me from snacking. It is the most healthy alternative and it actually helps not to develope sweet cravings! If you already have one it’s gonna be hard to switch to water though…
Low Cal Desserts
Low cal desserts of course are a great thing to satisfy a sweet craving after a meal. They’re not too appropriate as TV snacks though because too much of it adds a lot of calories. Except maybe ice cream which can take pretty long, too.
Always a good way to keep your mouth busy, they last pretty long as well (if you don’t decide to chew them ;)). But remember: too many can cause your digestive system to be quite… disordered ;)
Veggie Plate (canned?)
This of course won’t help to satisfy sweet cravings but it definitly is a good choice as a TV snack. If you cannot eat veggies without any sauce, try canned stuff like mini corn , mushrooms, ognions… Remember to wash off the oil if you take veggies in oil. Or make your own home made tomato sauce instead.
I really hope you find those tricks helpful! You see, it’s not necessary to fight your longing for TVsnacking, because this is what most nuttitonal specialists say. But let’s face it: it’s waaaay easier to sublimate them then to fully get rid of them ;)
