Stop Avoiding Dessert!

Posted on: November 20, 2012

Enjoy the benefits of Mercy Medical Center’s OPTIFAST weight loss program and have dream mousse after dinner tonight.

The hardest part about dieting is missing out on dessert. While you may be 100 percent committed to your weight loss goals, your sweet tooth can still cause havoc on your diet and be the source of temptation. One of the biggest benefits to Mercy Medical Center’s OPTIFAST weight loss program is the option to use the OPTIFAST ready to drink product in simple recipes. The shakes taste great, but sometimes they just don’t do enough to give you that full dessert feeling.  

Try this OPTIFAST recipe to help you lose weight and satisfy your sweet tooth.

Simple ingredients are:

•       1 package Dream Whip® whipped topping mix*

•       1⁄2 cup OPTIFAST® 800 Ready to Drink – Chocolate or Strawberry

You will be able to find a package of Dream Whip at your local grocery store, and the recipe for the dream whip mousse is on the back of the package. Instead of using milk, substitute your OPTIFAST 800 ready to drink product. Are you in a chocolate mood, or craving some sweet strawberries? Choose the OPTIFAST flavor that suits you!

This recipe makes four servings. Separate into four different plastic containers with lids and refrigerate.  

A single serving of this desert has 60 calories, 1.7 grams of protein, 10.5 grams of carbohydrates, 37 grams of fat and 27.5 mg of sodium.  

If you have repeatedly tried, but still can’t seem to kick the extra pounds, there are many options for non-surgical medical weight loss, including Mercy Medical Center’s OPTIFAST® program. For more information about Mercy Weight Management’s weight loss programs, please call 330-588-4854.
