Normally when one decides to lose weight, the first few things that go out of the window are sugar, sweets, and chocolates. But if one knows about the right way of eating (yes! even sweets) 😈, one can continue to eat sweets and still lose weight. Losing weight does not mean you zip the lip to sweets.
You can read my post: Eat Sweets & Still Lose Weight to know how you can satisfy your cravings without worrying about putting on weight.
Losing weight really does not mean that one stops eating sweets. The more you try to suppress your craving of eating sweets, the more you would get haunted by them. It is human nature, and you really cannot do much about it. 😁😁 So just have the sweets, infact relish them. Only eat them in the right manner.
