Humpday Hint: Sweets? On a DIET??

Yes, you can eat sweets when you are dieting. You can either limit yourself to a 75-calorie sweet every day, or save up the calories to splurge on one large sweet on the weekend.

What sweet treat contains fewer than 75 calories?
  • A medium apple or peach
  • Half a banana
  • A cup of raspberries
  • Half a grapefruit
  • Root beer float (diet soda over ¼ cup light ice cream)
  • About 1 ½ Tbsp of many types of granola
  • 30 sugar-free jellybeans
  • 5 flavored mini rice cakes
  • 1 cup fat-free hot cocoa
  • 1 block (3 squares) dark chocolate
