3 Tips for Choosing Desserts for Weight Loss

If you are looking for the best healthy desserts for weight loss, you will not find them in your standard sweets aisle at your local grocery store. 

Before we get into the good stuff, let’s rephrase and focus on the desserts that will help you lose fat instead of weight, because weight is not an indicator of your health and doesn’t say much about your body composition. You could weigh 65 kg and have 10% body fat or 40% body fat. Your weight depends on various things, such as how much muscle you have, as well as your height, bone structure, etc. 

When you are trying to lose fat, and want to have dessert too, guess what… you can! 

Choose Desserts That Are Made From Whole Foods 

If you choose dessert options that are minimally processed and where whole foods have been used as ingredients, you can actually have dessert every day, perhaps even at every meal. 

If you don’t like cooking or baking, finding healthy desserts that will help you lose fat will take some time and research. Do a Google search for sugar-free snacks and treats you can buy online and look around in stores to find sweet treats that are low in sugar and other possibly inflammatory ingredients like soy, gluten, or hydrogenated vegetable oils. 

A lot of stores, nowadays, have started adding healthier options and even a health food section, and you can always go to a health foods store. 

Go for Desserts That Are Low in Sugar

I first learned about the art of sugar-free baking from Sarah Wilson in her book, I Quit Sugar. 

This woman can teach you a lot about how to reduce your sugar intake and make sugar-free desserts. 

You can also find a lot of sugar-free dessert recipes on Pinterest or Google. 

All you need to do is use alternatives to sweeten your treats, such as erythritol, stevia, and even xylitol. 

A lot of stores, nowadays, have low-sugar or sugar-free options. So, if you don’t like baking, you can still probably get your hands on some low-sugar or sugar-free treats. 

Portion Control Matters 

One thing you need to keep in mind when choosing healthy desserts is that the amount that you eat still matters. Even if something is sugar-free, gluten-free, and/or low in carbs, eating too much of it can cause you to gain fat and you will end up with the opposite of what you want. 

These are just a few tips on making healthy desserts part of your lifestyle, but a world of wonder awaits as soon as you start making the switch to the indulgent, healthy life.
