Can You Have Your Cake And Eat It Too??

Since Kathy is the queen of desserts, I asked her for poll question ideas. She wanted me to ask "how to lose weight".

When I reminded her that the theme of this issue was Tempting Desserts, she suggested that I ask if you could have your cake and eat it too.

Then she said "what is that question supposed to mean anyway?" (These two contradictory topics; tasty desserts and diets, appeared to have irritated her a bit) "Who would want to have a cake but not eat it?" she continued. "If you have a cake, the expectation is that you are going to eat it, isn't it?"

I don't know the I'll put it to you.

When it comes to desserts and diets, can you have your cake and eat it too? In other words, can you eat tempting desserts while dieting and still stay on your diet?

Do you know any portion-size tricks, ingredient substitutions (like using apple juice as a sweetener) or anything like that? If so, please elaborate in the comments section...and, if anyone knows the meaning or origin of the (apparently stupid) saying "can you have your cake and eat it too?" please explain.
