Here are two simple and delicious desserts that can also help you burn fat even when you're treating yourself.

Easy Berry Cheesecake

Dairy products, including cottage cheese, have been associated with diet-induced weight loss. Plus, fiber in berries can help prevent bloating and keep your digestive system moving to also help keep you trim.


  • 1/2 cup low-fat cottage cheese
  • 1/2 cup fresh or frozen mixed berries
  • 1 packet stevia

Mix together, chill, and serve.

Peanut Butter Oat Balls

These delicious treats are packed with fiber from the oats to help keep you full. Protein in the peanut butter helps build muscle mass and burn fat.


  • 2 tbsp peanut butter
  • 2 tbsp chopped oats

Mix together 2 tablespoons of peanut butter and 2 tablespoons of chopped oats. Roll them into balls and store in the refrigerator.
