As you continue on your journey of healthy eating, try and incorporate more physical activity in your day.  This will speed up weight loss.  Even if you can only spare 10 minutes here or there, research has shown that broken up activity is just as effective as exercising for one large chunk of time. Go for a bike ride, take your dog on a walk, take the stairs up to your office - you get the picture.

Since we are featuring dessert recipes today, we should also mention the key to incorporating dessert into your weight loss plan is moderation.  Take smaller, slower bites and actually taste the dessert.  This will help give your brain ample time to tell your stomach when to stop eating.
