Do You Specifically Save Room For Dessert?

Do You Save Room For Dessert?

When going out to dinner, I specifically don't stuff myself silly so I can save room for a few bites of dessert. My hubby also has a big sweet tooth, but he has a much bigger appetite for deliciously savory foods. He always downs his meal without thinking twice, and feels too engorged to order a dessert to share. So when I get home, I have a few bites of ice cream or a piece of dark chocolate. What about you?

I LOVE desserts, but I want to get into the habit of making my own healthy desserts, so I can eat them without guilt :) Maybe I can try surviving on a few pieces of dark chocolate I actually like 85% chocolate

I don't usually eat dessert right after dinner. I usually drink coffee with cream and sugar instead. If I'm going to eat something sweet, I like to eat it right before bed :)

My grandmother and I used to always have dessert first! These days, I'm almost always hungry again within a couple of hours after dinner, so I usually have some sort of sweet or savory after-dinner snack. I rarely order dessert in restaurants, since they customarily don't fit with my dietary limitations. But my favorite restaurant for celebrations has a sugar-free flourless chocolate torte that I always indulge in.

As a child I used to ask what was for dessert so as to determine whether it was worth eating dinner to get to! (I was a horribly picky eater as a child)

Sometimes (if my favorite dessert is avaliable).

I do have a huge sweet tooth, but I never order dessert. I'm normally too stuffed to think about it.

I am sugar obsessed, dessert is never optional :P

If I eat out and the meal is expensive and a decent amount of food ( good size steak, potatoes, etc), I intentionally try to divide the food in half to take that home before I even start eating. That does two things: 1- Keeps me from overeating and 2- Makes me feel like I got two meals for the price of one, especially if it is a expensive restaurant. If I do that, I usually split a dessert, since I have a major sweet tooth. I read somewhere that it only takes 2-3 bites of a dessert to feel satisfied, and that is really true....I never order one dessert completely for myself anymore. Saves on money, calories, and guilt!

I have a sweet tooth but pretty high standards dessert wise, and I ALWAYS ask for dessert menu before ordering my main. So if the option is an amazing meal and mediochre dessert, I'll forego making space for dessert and focus on the main. If the dessert is stellar but the main meal mediochre, I'll skip the main meal or eat just a small starter, then focus on dessert. If both are mediochre, I'll have half main half dessert. But yeah, I can happily substitute a meal for dessert.

I'm not a dessert or app person. I'd much rather just eat my whole dinner I ordered. It's never as good the second day!
