Sweet summertime – Here are a few quick tips to keep in mind this summer when reaching for a tasty treat! 
1.     Fat free tends to be less calories, but be careful of sugar alcohols – these often make the product taste fake and tend to not be as satisfying
a.    Sugar free options tend to be higher in fat and low fat options still tend to be fairly high in fat as well – usually a ‘light’ version is an even balance of sugar and fat.
2.    Cake and ice cream are all about the same amount of calories per ounce respectively – but some options just contain more air; so portion size still matters (ie soft serve ice cream, angel food cake)
3.    Single serve items are great for portion control, if you can eat just one…
