HUNGRY GIRL SHOCKER!! Are you sitting down? One slice of plain cheesecake at The Cheesecake Factory contains a whopping 710 calories and 49 grams of fat! The pieces jam-packed with white chocolate, cookies, nuts, candy bars, etc. can have an additional 200+ calories (and plenty of fat grams!) more. If you have to eat it, make sure you bring about 10 of your close, personal friends to share it with you.
HUNGRY GIRL WARNING! Don't be fooled by fruit! Just because something is made with apples or peaches doesn't mean it's healthy or low in calories. Fruit-flavored cobblers and creme brulees are often the some of the most fattening items on the menu. Be careful!
HUNGRY GIRL TIPS!
Have a hard time resisting fattening desserts at restaurants? Pop an after dinner mint in your mouth. It will curb your craving for chocolate and sweets... PROMISE! If you want to order dessert while eating out, try to stick with healthier options like berries (hold the whipped cream) or fat free sorbet.
Have dessert at home...and pack your house with satisfying, diet-friendly treats!
