Eating healthy doesn’t have to mean skipping dessert entirely. Ignoring your cravings and swearing off chocolate for good, for example, can land you in a chocolate ice cream binge, which doesn’t help your waistline — or your morale. The best way to have your cake and eat it too is moderation and portion control.
Sticking to less than 150 calories for dessert gives you enough wiggle room to enjoy an after-dinner treat without making a huge dent in your calorie budget. While dessert calories can add up quickly, capping it at 150 calories not only keeps you on track, it gets your creative juices flowing, too! Lightening up a classic dessert or a comforting favorite helps satisfy your cravings and allows you more than just a nibble of that brownie.
