Do you have a craving to eating dessert or any other sweet after your meal? Well, I have and you can call it addiction also. Everytime, if it's not any dessert, I would search for chocolate, cookie, candy or any other sweet, but I have to have something sweet after the meal, even if it's a small bite. I am wondering if it's only me who has this habit or anyone of you having the same? I am keen to know.

H[i]i comfort, Most of the time, I will eat banana only or whatever fruits available in the house and if there is none, then I will just drink water after eating! LOL! I am not used to eat anything like sweets![/i]

That's a good habit that you don't crave for sweet afer meal, I'll try to overcome it in the future as addiction of anything is bad. Thanks Che for your response.

I have the same experience with you. It has become my habit or even an addiction of taking some dessert after meals. I always try to find something sweet to eat such as candy, fruit,or even biscuits after meals even though I am full enough. It will make me feel more comfortable. Someone says that taking too much sugar is bad for our health and may contribute to heavy weight. I never care much about my weight because I'm very thin. A little sugar is Okay for me. Good luck and have a nice day!

I am also on thinner side so i can afford to eat, but yes, I know too much of sweet is not good for the health. I am trying to curb the desire, maybe I get success sometime in future. Happy weekend!

There are times I have been known to do this, but for the most part, I try to not eat a dessert very often, unless it is something known to be Good for me. I am insulin diabetic so it is not good for me to eat sweets, but from time to time I have been known to splurge. So usually I will make sure that I am eating things that will fill me up to make me not have those cravings as well.

yeah, I can understand, one has to be extra careful while eating sweets when you are diabetic. My husband is also diabetic, but the sugar level is on the borderline. At times he does eat sweets as he's also quite fond of, but very limited, trying hard to keep the level under control. Thanks for your response Krause.

I usually don't eat desserts because every time I have eat a meal I feel so full already so it is less likely that I will eat dessert. But sometimes I love to eat sweets , some cakes with coffee. I also like ice cream which I would prefer more after a meal.

Hi there Comfort! Yes, I do that too. Maybe I got used to it but every after meal, I look for something, usually sweets or fruits. My favorite dessert is mango cream float and chocolate chip cookies.

No I don't have that craving. There are just times that I want dessert but not all the time or every after meal. Eating sweets after meal can be a habit, and there are lots of people I know who have this habit. I am also trying to lessen my sugar inteke due to skin breakout that it is causing me.

I do. Always want desserts after I eat, but I know it is not healthy so I try to avoid it when I can. But man, I love it. Now I crave some. Thanks! :-P
