Cutting back on sweets
A: With another Christmas season under our belts, we can all take a collective sigh of relief and take a moment to relax! If you are like the largest part of the population, you have made a New Year’s resolution to lose those few extra pounds we all seem to pick up around the holidays. You may think that this means absolutely no sweets and I have to disagree! I think most of us tend to only want something more when we try to deny ourselves any treat and then over-indulge when we try to sneak it in. Here’s my best tip: MODERATION! Now’s the time to make use of some of those cool Christmas gifts that are for making up cake pops or candies, just be smart with what you make. Candy clusters can be made with less sugary cereals instead of high fat, salty nuts. Maybe the cake pops are a bit smaller so you still get a bit of sweet, but ½ as much! This is really the lesson we all need to take to heart and be sure to set the example for our families. Every diet needs room for some reward, so give yourself a sensible one and you’ll have much more success! Keep life sweet!
