So good no one will know they’re good for you!

Melt Away Pounds While Indulging In These Decadent Desserts…

One of the biggest temptations when trying to lose weight is dessert.

Maybe it’s at the end of a nice meal out at a restaurant… or the pastries your co-workers bring in seemingly every day…

Or even that pint of Haagen Dazs that always somehow gets replenished in the back of the freezer…

But I don’t know how many times I swore I “wouldn’t eat dessert that day,” and ended up in a full-on sugar binge.

I get it: we only have so much willpower that we can dedicate to resisting the urge to indulge our sweet teeth.

So instead of depriving yourself of those delicious desserts that just scream out to be eaten everywhere you turn…

Why not replace them with these healthy, “no guilt” alternatives, that you can eat all you want without having to worry about putting on pounds or fitting into your favorite pair of jeans?

I’ll do you one better: many of these were created within guidelines provided by Dr. Steven Masley, who runs a famous weight loss clinic in Florida that’s helped thousands of people lose tons and tons of weight…

And they all contain ingredients that can actually help you lose weight… especially in those “problem areas” like your belly, hips, and thighs.

(More on that in a minute).

Before we get started with the desserts though… 

7 Delicious No-Guilt "Slimming" Desserts

3 Sugar Substitutes That Actually Burn Fat & Boost Weight Loss (Plus 2 That Can Increase Cravings & Increase Weight Gain)

There’s a lot of bad information out there about sugar and sugar substitutes… especially when baking.

Some sites have “healthy” desserts that are loaded with maple syrup or honey.

But both maple syrup and honey are little better than table sugar in disguise!

Your body may have to work slightly harder to burn either of these… but ultimately, both still spike your blood sugar just like table sugar!

And of course, other sugar substitutes like aspertame, splenda, and saccharine have tons of studies and data showing how harmful they can be.

So when making these desserts, we consulted Doctor Masley, and these are the 3 sugar substitutes that “made the grade” for him:

1) Stevia

Stevia is an extract of a South American plant that is naturally sweet, and contains zero calories.

While other zero-calorie sweeteners have mountains of studies saying they’re bad for you…

Stevia has been given the “green light” by several scientific, peer-reviewed, PubMed surveys.

(PubMed is the study database that doctors use to better inform their medical decisions).

It’s Dr. Masley’s preferred sweetener of choice, and especially when baking it works really well to maintain the proper texture and level of sweetness.

When baking, for every cup of sugar a recipe calls for, you can replace it with:

  • 1 teaspoon of liquid stevia
  • 1/2 teaspoon stevia extract powder, or
  • 1 tablespoon concentrated stevia liquid

You can also use packets, but it’d require about 20 packets of stevia to equal one cup of sugar!

2) Xylitol

Xylitol is a sugar alcohol that’s extracted from different types of wood.

It contains 2.4 calories per gram, which is 60% of the calories found in sugar.

Most importantly, Xylitol doesn’t spike insulin levels. Frequent insulin spikes lead to insulin resistance, which leads to your body storing more energy as fat, instead of using it to power your cells.

The only downside is that some people don’t tolerate Xylitol well, and report gastrointestinal problems.

So while Xylitol isn’t a “zero calorie” sweetener, it is significantly better for you than sugar.

Better still, in recipes, you can use it at a 1:1 ratio with the sugar a recipe calls for.

So if a recipe calls for 1/4 cup sugar, you can use 1/4 cup xylitol instead.

3) Coconut Sugar

Coconut sugar has the same amount of calories as regular table sugar.

So why does it make the list?

Because it doesn’t spike insulin like table sugar does.

Not only that, but it also contains inulin, which is a substance that lowers coconut sugar’s glycemic index.

Plus it contains more antioxidants than table sugar, as well as zinc, potassium, and calcium.

So while it’s not great for you, it’s decidedly better than regular sugar.

That said, whenever possible, you can substitute in stevia or xylitol for coconut sugar in the desserts below.

I optimized the sweeteners in each of these for taste… but that said, it’s my taste.

You might find that Stevia tastes great to you, so feel free to substitute it in wherever you see Xylitol or coconut sugar instead.

Remember, that for every cup of Xylitol or coconut sugar in these recipes, you can sub in:

  • 1 teaspoon of liquid stevia
  • 1/2 teaspoon stevia extract powder, or
  • 1 tablespoon concentrated stevia liquid

Now onto the 7 desserts!

What’s the “Secret Ingredient” All of These Have In Common?

By now, you may have noticed that a lot of these recipes have a few things in common:

1) Low (or No) Carbs

These generally don’t have wheat flour in them, and whatever carbs they do have aren’t processed.

This means that your digestive system is better able to break them down into fuel instead of fat.

2) Low-Glycemic Index Foods

I’ve mentioned the glycemic index a lot. 

All that means is how quickly and easily that food gets broken down into sugar, and that sugar gets absorbed by the bloodstream.

Foods with a high glycemic index (>55) break down into sugar more quickly, and that sugar gets into the bloodstream more quickly.

Consequently, insulin is released more quickly too. And as I mentioned earlier, these “insulin spikes” often signal your body to store more of this sugar as fat.

Foods with a lower glycemic index break down into sugar more gradually, over time. 

That means that insulin is released more slowly… which means that more of this sugar can be used as fuel by your body as it’s broken down.

So low glycemic index foods in these recipes are one of the main reasons they’re “slimming.” 

But that’s not the major reason these desserts are actually good for you…

3) How These Delicious Desserts ACTUALLY Cause Belly Fat to Melt Right Off…

The REAL reason these desserts are so slimming is simple:

They promote the right kind of bacteria in your gut!

You may have heard about “gut flora,” “probiotics,” or even these recent experiments where they transplanted fecal bacteria (!) from a skinny person to an overweight person…

…and the overweight person lost a ton of weight over the course of a couple months.

The truth is, the type of bacteria in your gut has a huge impact on how your body processes food.

It’s the difference between those who can eat anything they want and stay fit, trim, and happy…

…and those who eat all the “right” foods and still struggle to keep the weight off.

Until now, doctors, nutritionists, and other health researchers had no idea about how gut bacteria actually influences your weight.

But as I mentioned before, one doctor, Dr. Steven Masley, has been on the cutting edge of this formerly secret area of research for over a decade.

And he’s discovered the secret foods that can help you lose weight effortlessly, and keep it off…

(It’s how he was able to consult me on the fat-melting foods to include in this cookbook).

Dr. Masley made a short, free video that will show you:

  • What these naturally “slimming” foods are
  • How they positively benefit your gut bacteria, and
  • How to use these foods to burn off stubborn belly fat by the pound week-after-week
