I have been thinking about this thread since I first read it.

My first instinct is booze!!! But I'd have to hide the cake first. The booze would make me weak and I'd eat the cake too afterwards. Boo.

My body actually deals better with that than the processed sugar rush from cake. I do like cake, it just really does not like me.

Plus booze just makes me sleepy. I'm a cheap date!
What do you by you process alcohol better than sugar?

I thought of the same thing! I might opt to pair the cake with the wine i'd be sipping )

I have a glass of wine every night. It hasn't affected either my 50-pound weight loss or maintenance. The only thing that derails me is consuming too many calories, no matter what form those calories take.

I have to say I think this is kind of a hilarious question. Fundamentally I don't think it makes any difference if you're talking about one night/one serving, so it's more a matter of which one you like better. For me, cake all the way! Dessert is my favorite food group.

(To be honest, if it was a special occasion or something -- I'd have both. )

Ever tried UV's Cake Vodka? They make it in white cake and chocolate flavors. Best of both worlds, in my book!

There's always the fact about alcohol affecting and metabolizing differently that makes this question kinda tricky.. But thanks for sharing your answer!

Can someone please do an experiment. Or, I'll do it if you like.

I will eat cake. And then many times the calories worth in beer.

I guarantee my weight will be affected less by the beer.

Alcohol and cake is like chalk and cheese.

I do like that vodka. And I'm fond of the chocolate wine, as well.


Seriously, I can easier have a glass of wine than the comparably sized equivalent calorie dessert or cake and keep it in my calorie target. I don't care about the metabolism difference, I just know that I have more control over wine than dessert.

I actually want to try replacing anything i'd eat after dinner with wine, just to see what happens.

And, also quoting Shannon in ATL, I think I'd have more control over wine than dessert!
