Here are some FAQs about healthy desserts:
Typically, a dessert would be deemed healthier if it has less sugar than the original recipe. In the case for WW desserts, these desserts would be anything that is lower in points than the original.
A dessert on WW is typically 3-4 points per serving, but that will vary depending on the plan.
To make anything healthier, you have to remove the “bad” and replace it with something “good”. In terms of desserts, this would typically mean removing the “bad” (Sugar) and replacing it with some other type of sweetener, like honey or applesauce.
Did you know that applesauce can be used for more than toddlers snacks?
I love to use applesauce when I’m baking to make things healthier. It also helps that we always have it on hand nowadays.
Yes! Of course you should. There is no reason to limit or stop yourself from eating something that you want to. I would say that eating desserts excessively will be harmful to your health.
As with anything, moderation is key. I would recommend indulging once or so a week and trying not to over do it. Again, this is a challenge for most people, but I find it much more difficult to completely cut something out of your diet versus moderating how often you have something.
I would consult with my doctor on the types of foods I should be eating and what I should not be eating during this time.
However, there are alternatives to sugar, so if you are needing to watch your sugar intake, I would recommend looking into alternatives.
No, I am not. Please consult with your doctor before starting any kind of weight loss regimen. I am, however, a WW user and follower of the plan. I have lost and maintained (for over a year) a 40lb weight loss.
You are welcome to read more about my journey here. I go into much more detail about my journey and what it was like to be on WW at that time.
I have since struggled to get back on track and onto the new plan. But I’m working towards getting more motivated each and every day, and I feel like that counts for something.
