At the end of a long day, nothing is better than curling up on the couch with your favorite dessert! I love dessert, and I am sure you do too! Since I try to stick to the three-hour diet and eat every three hours, I generally end up eating dessert every night, especially the nights I stay up late.

Why Eat Dessert Daily
Eating dessert daily can help you with your diet! Can you believe that!? By allowing yourself some of your favorite treats regularly, you will have a better relationship with food. It will allow you to view food in an emotionally healthy way, rather than something that helps you through stressful times and bad days.
Some people try having a “cheat meal” while on a diet. I have been here before, allowing yourself a pizza once a month seems like a great way to stay away from your favorite “unhealthy” meals, but really this can backfire. When you have stayed away from your favorite food for so long, do you really think you can have self-control and only have some? No! You are going to eat and eat some more until you feel disgusting. We have all been there.
By allowing yourself dessert, you are more likely to not indulge and stuff your face with your favorite sweet treats! While I try to eat healthier desserts, many articles state that it does not matter what type of dessert you eat as long as you don’t overeat it.
In fact, the foods you should be more worried about are the ones that are sneaky about containing sugar! Protein bars, cereals, packaged foods, bottled coffee and tea drinks, and other items you may consume daily are hiding the fact that they contain sugar. They are trying to trick you into thinking they are healthy, but really they could contain as much sugar as your favorite dessert that you have been avoiding on a daily basis.
Being aware of where your sugar is coming from is a great way to cut back and make your diet healthier. You should know that your dessert contains sugar, and you should not feel guilty eating it daily! But you should try to cut back on sugar in other produces. Try to eat more fruits and veggies daily. Add more whole grains and lean proteins to your diet, and enjoy your dessert every single day!
Rather than cutting stuff out of your diet, simply work on portion control. Measure out a serving size and don’t allow yourself back for more. Cut sugars in other areas of your diet. Not only will doing this help make your diet easier to stick to, but it will also help you not view food as a negative thing!
