Road Bump: Cake


Eating cake can derail your weight-loss train.

Parties often involve a celebratory cake.  Cakes are full of sugar and fat.  The best of all is a buttercream cake.  The cake is often made pound cake which contains over a pound of butter and flour and that does not count what is in the icing.  How do you stay healthy and continue to lose weight?



I would say eat a small piece, but I usually go back for seconds.  My kryptonite is cake.  I am not sure how to stop from eating it.  I you have suggestions, please post them in the comments.  My will power is not sufficient to avoid it.  While on vacation, I had a party and could not resist having a bunch of cake.  


The bottom line: I guess I would not recommend that you eat cake if you are trying to lose weight. If you must, a call serving to cupcakes might be your best choice. A smaller serving is always better than 1/4 of a cake.
