Low-fat, low-sugar desserts? I'M CRAVING SO BADLY!



Recommended Posts

I'm currently on a 6 month diet of low sugar, low fat, high Protein eating. I'm awful at cooking and I'm really struggling with dessert cravings. Are there any recipes or quick fixes you have for these times? :48_weary:

Can I ask, are you doing sweetener stuff - Coke Zero, stevia in cooking etc?

We have gone sugar cold turkey, but also ‘sweetness’ cold turkey - so quit the artificial sweeteners too. And it took a month, 6 weeks but the cravings have stopped. Seems to be some thinking that if you keep using sweeteners, you keep your ‘sweet tooth’ alive, so sweet cravings persist...

Didn’t answer your question, but you might be interested to ponder it...

sugar-free fudgesicles, definitely a favorite . . . and with warm weather coming, yum! Of course, the stores are full of sugar-free Desserts, Cookies, and the like, but mostly steer clear of those things--as you probably know, they are full of questionable ingredients (such as more carbs and chemicals). Sugar-free jellos and puddings work--and I'll just say that I far prefer cooked puddings to instant ones. All you have to do is stand over the pan and stir, stir, stir. Worth it.

I made my own fudgesicles- took sugar free fat free chocolate pudding and almond milk, mixed and poured into popsicle molds.

Have you looked at skinnytaste.com? She has SO MANY great recipes!

Also, during my pre-op I relied on sugar free Jello pudding and sugar free popsicles - they both helped tame the cravings!

I feel you. I’m 5 days in. I have 3 month diet (insurance requirement). It’s a 2 week phase of Protein, low/no carb. Then 1 week liquid Protein Shakes. Then rotate back again. That will be life until I have surgery. 😩

i don’t mind the low carb too much but I don’t like the dairy restriction (3 servings a day). Ugh!!!

Unfortunately any dessert other than sugar-free Jello and popsicles is going to be carb heavy.

Also, in low-fat versions of higher-fat foods, you are generally trading fat for carbs, sadly. Just look at salad dressings, like low fat/fat free ranch or italian.

For desserts, I'd try the Premiere Protein or nectar shakes with dessert like flavors. I found the nectar's double stuff cookie shake was just sweet enough to satisfy my craving, but also give me the protein I need
