Do You Crave Something Sweet at the End of Each Meal?

My co-worker AlexisSF has to eat something sugary at the end of every meal. To curb her sweet tooth, she often grabs an apple after lunch. I, on the other hand, am much more of a salty or sour fanatic. I'm perfectly fine ending meals on a savory note. What about you? Do you feel the urge to end your meals with a sweet treat?

Nope. I usually eat something sweet in between meals. I guess it is because I grew in a household where we don't serve dessert after a meal.

I try to do something little, like chocolate graham crackers or a few bites of ice cream, lol... I used to be really bad about it but I am trying to get better!

yah i do, so i try to satisfy it with something small, like i'll have a 100 cal chocolate bar after lunch, but i've factored it into my diet

Yes I always do. For lunch it isn't so bad I usually just have a piece of fruit and do not want anything really heavy. However, after dinner I get a major craving for all things sweet - the heavier the better! So I usually make a protein "brownie" or muffin and eat a little PB or whip cream with it and that usually does the trick.

Definitely but for lunch I'll just drink a cup of sweet milky tea rather than eating a dessert in the middle of the day.

Usually something sweet, just a few bites but sweet.

Well I don't eat junk food but I always pop some gum after a meal. It's a nice way to say "I'm done"

Yes, all the time! Sometimes, I'm full already and I still want some dessert.

I usually like a little something sweet at the end of my meal--typically, it's a cup of coffee with sugar and a little cream or a peppermint candy or something like that. I'm not big on eating a full dessert, though.

RoaringSilence, me too! If I eat something sweet, I have to follow it with something salty again, and by that point, I'm overeating. ;-)

I crave something salty after every sweet.

I like to have something crunchy with my meal. If I don't have something crunchy, I feel like I'm missing something.
