Brunosbud- Yes, I guess you are right I am explaining how to enjoy desserts more. However, I've found that when I do sprinkle the salt on my dessert I am MORE satisfied by smaller amounts and end up eating less. It may sound a little odd, I was a skeptic when I first heard this tip, but I tried it, and it works! I found that tip and a bunch of other quirky weight-loss tips in this article http://www.ivillage.com/52-little-changes-big-weight-loss-results/4-b-394731#394786.View Thread
I have such a sweet tooth, but I'm trying to cut down on my desserts. I find that if you sprinkle a little salt on your dessert it helps enhance the flavor, I end up eating less dessert with the salt on it! I would definitely recommend this to anyone who has a sweet tooth! The salt makes the flavor really pop out! This is also great for the healthy, not so tasty desserts. This isn't recommended for those with high blood pressure however!View Thread
