Ease Your Cravings for 150 Calories or Less

It's a given: sooner or later, you're going to want something sweet to eat. The WebMD Weight Loss Clinic staff understands this, so the program allows "light" desserts (at about 150 calories each).

As you'll see below, there are plenty of choices, whether your cravings are for ice cream, cake, cookies, or anything chocolate. But do keep two things in mind as you skip through the dessert aisle of your supermarket:

  • Though many fat-free cakes, cookies, or light frozen desserts may be lower in fat and more healthful to eat than their full-fat counterparts, they can still pack plenty of calories. Calories still count. And as the fat is taken out of some of these products, something is added in its place -- namely sugar, or sugar-containing ingredients such as marshmallows, caramel, or fudge swirls.
  • Whatever light dessert you choose, it must taste great to you. Otherwise, you'll be tempted to reach for something else (meaning you've spent 150 calories on your light dessert plus the calories for whatever else you end up reaching for). Lower-fat fudge bars, for example, only help you if they really satisfy your chocolate cravings.
