Desserts can be a nightmare, if we are in the middle of a diet to lose weight, or if we're trying to maintain it, when we finish our lunch, for example, and we have the desire for something sweet. However, a dessert does not have to be full of calories.

Experience tells us that those who take sweets occasionally actually have more long-term success in their diet, as total deprivation rarely works.

Those recipes look delicious! I want to try them right now 🙂 Bananas with chocolate are very taste, but I haven?t tried sweet rice, this will be the first one on my kitchen! You should post more articles with awesome recipes like these ones. Thank you very much.
I know a lot of people are really big fans of “light” food…but I’m really not. I’ve read a lot of material regarding the toxcity of “light” substances, especially those that are chemically processed. If you want to lose weight, diet and exercise, that’s the only way. Change your diet, smaller proportions, more exercise. LOTS more!
