if you want a treat, what do you have

Postby sunshine » Wed Mar 19, 2008 3:24 pm

I was wondering what you have if you have a treat, or a naughty craving. I have been so good and had a brief thought last night that I need a chocolate mousse from Red Rooster. Its absolutely gorgeous and I love it and haven't had any for a long time. But I let the moment pass. But I really want one, maybe I will have one for easter. But then what about the easter eggs?? GGrrrrrr I suppose its one of the other. What do you treat your self with, or do you be good all the time????

I treat myself with paddlepops or billabong icecreams, they're less than 100 calories & seem to fix my chocolate craving. I just make sure I'm well under my calorie allowance & usually do a bit of extra exercise.

I think you need to enjoy a treat because this is a lifestyle change not a short term diet. In saying that it needs to be a "treat" not a regular occurence.

Easter though......that's a tough one but I think we'll have to slightly bend the rules for that one :mrgreen:

The best treats I've found are Billabong ice creams!! The chocolate and double caramel ones are only about 90 calories!! YUM!

If I'm craving chocolate, I have a little bit and try to factor it into my calories for the day - or make sure I work it off by doing exercise.

You can't be good all the time...this is a lifestyle change - you need to know how to eat well, but how to compensate if you slip up or have a treat!

I'd steer away from red rooster choc mousse...they are divine, but full of fat!!! Try a "diet" (brand) choc mousse!!! In WW they are only 1 point, and satisfy a choc craving!

HHmmm.....they're delish!!! My BFs hooked on them now too!

I alternate each week between the chocolate and the double caramel....yum!

Isn't it great when you can have these things though, and not feel guilty!? It's all about education - knowing what's good for you and how many calories are in what! For example, I would've eaten a whole box of rice crakers before eating a Billabong because I assumed they were better for you...now I know better!

Usually I just have a chocolate or a few pieces of dark chocolate (my favorite) because its low carbohydrates. But Easter is posing a problem...

There's already a chocolate Cherry Ripe egg sitting in my room but I think I'll have to break it up and have a little a day.

If I want a treat, I usually just have it ... hence why I still have 8kg to go to reach my goal weight when I could/should have been there 8 months ago :x :evil: :twisted: :oops: :roll: :(
Just keep moving! And don't be lazy...

oh god the choc mousse from Red Rooster is sooooooooo good but at 8 points I steer clear!! Thats more than a third of my daily allowance!

I like the Nestle Diet mousse!!

I grab the yogurt tub out of the fridge and have a half a dozen teaspoons of the "forme" yogurt. only 80cal per "serve" and I think my tea spoonage is a bit below a recommended serve. It gives me something sweet without overdoing it :mrgreen:

I bake all my snacks using recipes from my GI Diet recipe book. I always have something on hand to snack then if I feel like it. I also have lite yoghurt and apples available. I know that if I have a choccie it will be the end of me, (and chips) so I don't even go there.

I find that if i have a piece of fruit in the house i will have that. i am happy to snack on juicey oranges or yummy lychees. Usualy feel better afterwards if i have that to snack on then puddings and that sort of thing, although i have bought lerice when its on special and think it is yummy, not a good idea to get into the habit of buying.
