Did you know that you can lose weight even if you eat dessert?

When it comes to diets, cookies and desserts are off the menu. Now it has been discovered that dessert, as part of a balanced diet can help you lose weight and stay long term. And it is that trying to avoid sweets completely can create great anxiety for these foods.

Of course there are different types of desserts. They are not the same chocolate, nuts, fruits, cakes or desserts based on milk or yogurt. Some of them give us a better nutritional quality, that is, they are healthier.

Therefore, eat a dessert in the "fair portion", choosing what is best for you can allow you to have a comfortable body without giving up the pleasure or stay healthy.

It is a simple matter of quantity of calories. Instead of resorting to hyper caloric and unhealthy options, we can prepare different preparations at home and enjoy them without sabotaging our weight loss and without guilt.

Here we explain what they are, as well as their health benefits. Forget about staying with the desire for dessert, while losing weight in a balanced way.

  1. Coconut jelly

Coconut gelatin can be an ideal alternative for puddings. In addition, it is a dessert rich in fiber that fights constipation and gives us fatty acids that help us lose weight.

The apple and the pear are two ideal fruits to take as dessert, so we propose to cook them as puree. It is a very healthy and satisfying dessert, rich in fiber and low in calories that, in addition, does not need any added sweetener. We can cook the fruit in the oven or in a casserole with little water, after chopping it. We can also add some nuts, raisins and spices such as ginger or cinnamon.
