What cake to eat on a birthday if you are on a diet

  1. Anyone who has ever been on a diet knows the problem: the birthday visit. You are less than 5 minutes in or cake is already being offered. But since diet shouldn't mean jail time, there are options for a birthday. After all, it has to be fun.

The pie dilema

  1. Problem 1 occurs immediately after entry. You just kissed everyone goodbye, gave the birthday boy their gift, after which the dreaded question is asked "Do you want a nice piece of cake?". The answer "No, I am on a diet" is so boring and outdated! Provided you don't have 3 birthdays a week, it is best to have a piece of cake or cake. The trick is in the choice. Most kcal are usually in the base or dough of a pie. A lot of butter is used for the base and / or the dough, so that not only the kcal per slice of pie shoot up, but also the grams of fat you consume (1 gram fat = 9 kcal!).

Recommended daily amount of fat

  1. The recommended daily amount of fat is between 30 - 35 En%. This means that 30 - 35% of your total kcal intake must consist of fat. With a normal diet for an adult woman of 2000 kcal per day, this amounts to 66 - 77 grams of fat. Ideally, only a third of this is saturated fat; 22-25 grams of saturated fat. Suppose you maintain a diet of 1750 kcal per day, you can eat 58 - 68 grams of fat (19 - 22 grams of saturated fat).

Back to the pie dilema

  1. Because you want to lose weight, you will of course be low in your fat intake. Say a maximum of 60 grams per day. In the table below you can immediately eliminate two-thirds of the pie wedges. "Okay, what can I still take?". Choose something under 200 kcal and / or less than 15 grams of fat. Or take half a piece of cake. Have you been dreaming of a piece of cheesecake for weeks? Then take that piece of cheesecake. After all, we don't want to instill obsessions. But then take half!

Finally whipped cream

  1. A dollop of whipped cream provides 70 kcal, 6.2 grams of fat and 4 grams of saturated fat. If you already sin with a piece of cake, you really don't need that sprinkle of whipped cream with the cake anymore. That slice of cake also tastes just as good without whipped cream. This saves you an easy 70 kcal!
