3 Guilt Free Dessert Recipes

by True Elements 22 Sep 2023

Calorie counting for every meal is not provoked but watching your calorie count when consuming desserts is important for several reasons:


1. Weight concerns: Even if you’re not a weight-conscious person, calorie counting for dessert is important because desserts are often high in calories, sugars, and fats, which can contribute to weight gain if consumed in excess and if you’re weight-conscious monitoring your calorie intake from desserts will help you to maintain a healthy body weight.


2. Blood sugar control: Desserts are generally high in refined sugars that can cause rapid spikes and crashes in blood sugar levels. Hence, even a small bite of dessert is not recommended to diabetic or pre-diabetic people. Monitoring calorie intake and blood sugar from desserts is necessary for controlling these fluctuations.


3. Portion control: An inch of cake is sufficient for meeting sugar cravings and satiating. Calorie counting stirs up portion control, helping you avoid overindulgence. It allows us to enjoy desserts in moderation without feeling guilty or compromising health goals.


4. Mindful eating: Paying attention to calorie counts can promote mindful eating, where you savour and enjoy your dessert. This can lead to greater satisfaction and reduced cravings for unhealthy treats.


5. Long-term health: Just for small pleasures, our long term should not be compromised. A diet high in excessive calories from desserts can increase the risk of various health issues, including obesity, heart disease, and type-2 diabetes. By tracking your calories you can make choices that promote long-term health and well-being.
