A nutritionist whose name I don’t remember who was interviewed on some morning show offered these three steps to stave off a dessert craving.
1. Squeeze a stress ball 10 times. (Probably one in each hand would be best.)
2. Do 100 jumping jacks.
3. Drink 8 ounces of water.
That hopefully will get your mind off dessert for a time. Especially if you pass out after doing 100 jumping jacks.
Of course, my daughter did not help much by giving me a motion-activated candy dispenser filled with M&M’s for Christmas.
