A common misconception of people looking to change their eating habits is that they have to deny themselves of all desserts. However, there are a few things to consider. For one, your portion size matters a lot. If you’re eating an entire box of cookies, that’s much different than having just one. Secondly, if you’re buying processed, packaged sweets, they contain artificial ingredients and trans fats. But if you make homemade desserts, you can see exactly what goes into them.This helps you eliminate unnecessary calories and additives that make weight loss a challenge.
