Do you eat dessert before dinner?

Some people don’t mind. They would eat a dessert before dinner. Not only that I find that unhealthy but it’s also an appetite killer for me. If I ate something sweet before dinner I would probably delay my dinner. Nutritionists advice not to eat something with lots of sugar before dinner. A fruit dessert however is fine.

@Dyvette16 that’s the other way around for me. I can’t tolerate fruits after a heavy meal.

I sometimes eat dessert before dinner. Sometimes it makes me lost my appetite but sometimes not. ... It depends on the food for dinner. I still eat dinner If I like the food even if I have eaten dessert.

@dpk262006 there are times that i arrive home hungry and looking for something to eat. And if there is nothing to eat except a sweet and delicious dessert, I could not help myself but eat it while waiting for the dinner to be cooked or served.

@Madshadi I guess so, its been my practice to eat less at night so usually no dessert. Desserts for me are after eating lunch.

I normally don't but last Saturday evening I did with my friends. So after shopping we wen't to this store that serves a very delicious crepe. We did plan to have dinner but it was already 9:30 and that store closes at 10. But the lamb restaurant closes at 3am in the morning. So we had the crepe first and then dinner later. We had dinner around midnight.

So there was still a gap between the crepe and the dinner. Better than starve yourselves.

@Madshadi Because we were drinking tea to melt the dessert or we won't have the appetite for the lamb chops.

Fruits should always be eaten far from the main meals, so a fruit snack in the afternoon is good, immediately before dinner is not.

Yeah I agree that there should be a gap to digest fruits.

Well, for one thing, it’s full of sugar. For another, it could be an appetite killer. So your body would consume less healthy food. However , some studies I read about suggest eating a BIT of sweets before the main meal because, as they claim, it keeps appetite in check. I however do not agree with it.

I heard it the other way around. That fruits should only be taken before a meal.
