This morning on The View, Joy Behar suggested what I think might be the best portion-control diet in the world: Eat Dessert First.
I, for one, think this is a brilliant idea!
I can't tell you the number of times I've really just wanted a sweet treat but told myself, "No dessert until you eat your dinner!" Does my meal make me eat any less of the baked goods I was craving? No. It only forces me to consume extra calories before I even get to the part I really want.
Imagine if I had just enjoyed my ice cream right away. Maybe I wouldn't have even wanted to eat my dinner afterward. At the very least, I'm sure I would have eat less because my stomach would have been full of I really wanted.
