Sweets are OK, but only once-in-a-while
By Diana Kohnle
(HealthDay News) -- The occasional sweet treat is fine. But if your sweet tooth acts up daily, there are things you can do to help keep your cravings in check.
The American Council on Exercise offers this advice:
- Eat lots of fiber to help you feel full, and include some fruits and berries to enjoy something sweet.
- Keep only a single serving of chocolate or other high-calorie sweet on hand.
- Avoid vending machines.
- Prepare homemade trail mix, including pretzels, nuts and dried fruit.
- Eat your sweet treat slowly, savoring and enjoying each bite so you feel better satisfied.
