What does everyone do for desert, do you still have it or cut it out. I was thinking of making my own fruit salad, e.g apple, orange, banana, blueberries and rockmelon. Is this too much before going to bed or should it be a breakfast solution?

I've never really been much of a desert person except if someone cooks for me so I cant really answer that on.
I'd imagine that, as long as you're sensible about it, a frsh fruit salad would be ideal

My dessert is chopped up bits of fruit swimming in plain fat-free chilled yogurt (which replaces icecream), which is about 220 Kj per 100g. Any fruit will do as long as its kilojoule count is not high. For example, a chopped up banana, apple and 200g yogurt is about 1200Kj. The bonus over other desserts is that it is very low in fat and relatively high in fibre, while having enough flavour and sweetness.

To even further reduce kilojoules, boil up an apple stew with 50% apple and 50% choko. Chokos are more nutritious than apples, have less than half the kilojoules, and absorb the flavour so well that all mixed up it's hard to tell the difference.

However, if I have dessert I usually reduce my main meal to compensate.

I found some really yummy ice creams made by Coles
They are called "simply less" and they are 60 calories per serve
They taste awesome! And much less calories then those skinny cow ice cream!
I love them!

Desserts are good for any diets it keeps you craving at low. So rather than avoiding desserts, try to have healthy desserts like dark chocolate (no full bar), fruit salads, Greek Yogurt with fruits and honey( my favorite).

I think it’s a breakfast meal/solution but if want to eat this before bedtime just do it. This is healthy and delicious but you must wait for a few minutes before going to bed. I usually drink a cup of chamomile tea before going to bed and read some books.
