We all know how hard it can be to resist those delicious desserts when dieting, trying to live a healthier lifestyle, or living by health necessary diet restrictions. No matter what way you try to spin it, whether it be eating smaller portions or cutting certain foods out of your diet completely, sometimes it is just down right impossible to steer clear of foods when your body is craving them. Fortunately, all hope is not lost. There are ways to cut fat, calories, gluten and amp up protein, fiber, and omega 3s by substituting certain ingredients in recipes for others. Beachbody has come up with a list of healthy substitutions and has analyzed what that substitution can do for your health. The list (below) is broken down into categories which include flour, sugar, fat, eggs, and fillings and toppings, and other substitutions of what can be switched in and out of the recipe.
