It’s the hardest part of any lifestyle change. No matter the regimen, no matter the eating program, that little kid inside all of us can’t help but scream for treats every now and again. Sweet treats – candy and cookies, cakes and pie. Even after a bountiful meal which fulfills your nutritional needs while adding days (if not months or years) to our lives, we still want that bowl of ice cream, or that forbidden frozen yogurt.
Believe it or not, the treats listed below are easily obtainable and contain just a few of those pesky calories. Even better, they’re designed to put that craving for sugar to sleep so you can move forward toward achieving your goals. Check it out:
