Imagine a world in which you can eat dessert every day, where there is
always something sweet in the fridge or freezer, and you never have to eat a
tuna salad without salad dressing again. Just imagine being able to eat
indulgently, say yes to your cravings, and improve your health at the same
Did you know that you have been living in this world this whole time and
you didn’t even know it? If you choose wisely, you can eat dessert every day
and even after every meal. The big secret is simply choosing healthy desserts.
If you eat a dessert that is made from ingredients that actually nourish your
body, then dessert is no longer something to feel bad about, but something to
Eating dessert can become a way for you to improve your health instead
of it being something to stress over.
In The Dessert Diet Club, we say no to boring diets. Here, we indulge
daily. We allow ourselves to eat dessert for dinner sometimes and we don’t
judge ourselves for finishing an entire slab of chocolate when we only planned
on eating a few blocks or when we have a second cupcake.
We want food freedom — the freedom to eat what we want without feeling
stressed out or guilty. Instead of being obsessed with food and suffering
because of some or other boring diet, we choose to strive for having healthy
relationships with food and our bodies.
My life changed tremendously when I realised that I could have all of my favourite treats like brownies, ice cream, and pecan pie while keeping my sugar intake low, reducing inflammation, and even losing fat.
Whatever your health goal is, you can achieve it while satisfying your relentless
sweet tooth. It breaks my heart when I see people who love having something
sweet struggle with their dessert-free diets. I am on a mission to prove to
people that you can have your cake, eat it, and become your healthiest self at
the same time.
That’s why I wanted to start The Dessert Diet Club — to create a
community of people who are living their most indulgent lives. I dream of a
world where people share healthy desserts at parties; where the birthday cake
won’t be loaded with sugar and even the people who are intolerant to gluten or
are trying to lose fat can have a slice; and where my children will grow up
eating desserts that are good for them and I don’t have to deal with them
having a sugar rush.
In this book, I have outlined the indulgent guide to food freedom and
talk about everything from delayed gratification, eating in secret, and how to
help your friends and family become healthier, to how to negotiate with
yourself while out shopping for food.
You can skip to the dessert recipes (page 95) at the end if
you can’t wait to start indulging and then come back to the start. I highly
encourage you to make this dessert diet principle your own. All of the
guidelines in this book are optional. You can choose which ones you want to
apply to your life – keep the ones that you enjoy and ignore the rest.
I hope you are ready for the indulgent life. Welcome to The Dessert Diet
