I have one too.
The only thing that seems to work is making stuff at home. That way I can be sure it's not total junk. After I have a little and husband has some, it goes to the office or to friends.

You are lucky that you have only one sweet tooth . I seem to have a whole mouth full of them. It's a struggle each day to not eat those sweets.

I still eat sweets. I just eat ONE portion instead of shoveling it down without measuring like I used to. I love me some chocolate ice cream, brownies, cookies, pretty much anything chocolate.

I like fruit, chocolate soy milk, or portion-controlled cookies or ice cream bites ( I get them from Trader Joe's). Also a baked sweet potato with a little sugar and cinnamon is a nice treat that is loaded with vitamins.

I stay away from 100-cal snack packs because they don't satisfy the urge fully.

Get some sugar free candy or get whatever it is you want & use portion control. Don't deny yourself because it will only get worse!

Usually I satisfy mine with fruit, but every now and then I take a tablespoon of natural peanut butter. That helps a lot.

train yourself to eat fruit instead.
Eating sweets just increases the craving for more sweets.
Use artificial sweeteners in moderation.
You can train your taste buds.

Dried fruit (I like apricots, dates and prunes) are very sweet and have lots of fiber. You have to be careful, though, because they're high in calories. I would eat 4-5 apricot halves, 2 or 3 dates, or 2 or 3 prunes.

One thing for sure. You cant pull that tooth. I believe it is ok to eat them IN MODERATION. that is the key. Being diabetic, I rarely eat sweets although I have a real tough time with cookies. Bet you cant eat just one.

feed your sweet tooth a little tiny amount everyday. A bite sized piece of candy and 2 bites of cake. This is a lifestyle change not a diet, in the real world you have probably been eating too big of a portion, learn to go small.

I also have a sweet tooth. So I work a little something sweet into my evening snack.

Usually cereal or yogurt. Oikos vanilla Greek yogurt tastes just like cheesecake. And Yoplait whips taste like ice cream. If I am having a craving for a specific item. Then I figure out how to work it into my calories. I don't do fat free or sugar free, those make me binge. I don't find them satisfying at all.

I would not try eliminate sweets altogether especially if you are just starting out. I know myself that this could lead to a binge. Try to work something into your calorie allowance once a day. One bite of a dark chocolate, sugar free fat free pudding, weight watchers and others offer single desserts for 100 calories or less. Spark recipes also has some great suggestions for single serve desserts. If you can keep something in single serve packs so you won't be tempted to eat more than your allowance it may help to satisfy the sweet tooth without overindulging.

I agree with Bluenose.

It's probably the most difficult thing to conquer 100% of the time.

Sweet things like root veggies (carrots, parsnips) sauteed with good oils and cinnamon might just give you that additional sweetness you need.

Fruits, as mentioned before, either fresh or frozen, mixed in a smoothie or eaten fresh or in a dish with or without yogurt.

Make use of spices, especially the "warm" ones (cinnamon, cloves, nutmeg, ginger)

First of all let me say - Welcome to the Club! Now I would stick with the natural sugars found in fruit - you can make smoothies, popsicles, freeze grapes etc. It isn't just the sugar that gets ya, it is the combination of salt, sugar and fat that triggers a response in the brain to eat more of it.

freeze a bananna
give it a whirl in the food processor until smooth and creamy
Place in a desert dish (or any bowl) and put back in the freezer for appx 1 hour

Viola! Healthy Ice Cream!
