What should you do when losing weight is the goal but dessert is the most important meal of the day? On the WeightWatchers® program, you can watch the scale go down while still enjoying cookies, cupcakes, ice cream—whatever your sweet tooth desires.

After all, healthy eating is all about striking a balance, whether that means going for the ZeroPoint™ foods so that you have room in your Budget for a brownie or planning for cake at a birthday party. However you choose to fit in dessert is up to you.

So, while there’s nothing wrong with grabbing a sweet treat from the supermarket or bakery (hey, you’re busy!), there’s something seriously satisfying about mixing up your own dessert from scratch.
