Hi, KentGunderson. Dessert options are more likely in our regular non-fasting route. They don’t show up in the intermittent fasting menu because we are trying to fit the nutrition you need into a relatively small framework. However, if you would like a dessert serving, you can have one in place of a couple of the foods in your menu. A “sweet” exchange (dessert serving) is made up of one carbohydrate + 1 fat exchange. You can see the exchanges allotted to you by clicking on the “Exchange View” button above your menu. Using your second snack on Monday as an example, you can have a serving of brownies (1/20 of our recipe: in place of the English muffin half and butter.

Hi, KentGunderson, and welcome. In general, diet drinks can be tricky because they often contain artificial ingredients (particularly the sweetener), which can work against your efforts here. If you like soda, we recommend you make your own rather than relying on readymade products with excessive sugar or artificial sweeteners that can work against your goals here; just dress up plain soda water with natural flavor extracts (yes, “cola” is available!) or citrus peels and a natural no-carb sweetener (such as Stevia, monk fruit, and/or erythritol). You can get ideas from this article here:
If you are interested in diet drinks that provide protein or replace meals, it is important to read the ingredients list to make sure there is nothing artificial in there. If you would like more assistance with this, please repost, and I would be happy to help. 2 months ago
