Dvancliff - I feel your pain, too. =) I have a list of foods that are painful to eat, especially sugar and dairy, and I can't seem to resist them -- especially when my cafeteria has at least four varieties of ice cream fresh-made on-campus at every meal. After finally accomplishing a week of successful resistance, I've found it's not such a dramatic loss if I don't give in. I fell off that wagon, though, so it's back to step 1, haha.
Funny thing my doctor told me about craving what hates you: it's like a drug effect. It's bad for your body, but something in your brain reacts to this source it doesn't usually have, so you start constantly craving what's actually harming you.
I've also found that eating something savory, like a Boca burger or a Smart Dog, will replace that sweet longing in my mouth. Tea is also a good replacement.
