I can't resist, if the dessert is cheesecake, puddings or jellies. If time permits, then I will sit for a while, let my stomach rest, and then go for the desserts. If not, I'll still take smaller portions of each!

strawberry and chocolate!! - Yummy!!
If I am eating at a restaurant and I had ordered a dessert already then I will still eat it or I will just bring it home and eat it whenever I can.

This is what is known as sinful gluttony. It's possible because the stomach can still be stretched up to a certain point, and these people would rather feel absolutely miserable instead of leaving off the dessert, or eating it later. For the most part, these people are overweight, right? I do this: I don't eat all of the main course and take it home for another meal...then I have room for dessert, too.

scientifically, i hope if we have the habit of having desserts after a meal regularly, out body itself keeps room for some desserts at the end, but when goign to the restaurants, where the food tastes awesome we tend to eat slighlty more adn thus, provide no room for desserts

That's true. In that case, I either don't get dessert, or I bring the dessert home to eat at another time.

If I eat alot , I can't even think about dessert . I normally only eat till I'm no longer hungry. I don't like being uncomfortable from over eating .I rather have fresh fruit after a meal . It leaves a fresh taste in your mouth , and its heathier .

This is a very funny question for me because once upon a time I used to plan my meal according to what I was going to have for dessert. Now I have to wait a while after my meal before I take anything rich and sweet.

Maybe it is better to rest for a while about ten to fifteen minutes before you try to eat your favorite dessert if your stomach is really full. For me i don't have a problem where to place the dessert in my stomach because it i know that there is something sweet, i would really set aside something so that my tummy isn't that full. For sure, i would not suggest you take a lot of water so that your stomach won't get full easily.

if the dessert is my favorite than before i full my stomach i will eat all the desert till it fulls. i think its not good to eat anything else if your stomach is full. you should wait atleast 1 hour or two, to let your stomach digest.

I cannot eat dessert if I am still full from having dinner, but I rarely fill myself up that much if I am planning on having dessert. I only save room for dessert on specail occasions for the most part, but I do like to have a small taste of someone elses if they feel the need to share! My favorite dessert is creme brulee, so if a restaurant has that on their dessert menu, I try to save room for sure!

trying to save room is a tough job for me for if i like the food a lot, i tend to eat full without any second thoughts and thus end up in not having the desserts

Thre is always place for some dessert isn't there ? but idon't have it always and rather go for fruits now adays. And when i'm out in a buffet dinner, it's normally the dessert that i have a good look at first.

yes me too...because they look so colorful and are wonderfully presented that we cannot resist watching them or eating them...but right after a full meal, even that thought subsides
