i believe that taking the time to make a healthy snack cookie or bar is the answer to control. then you know how many servings you are allowed and how many calories are involved. find a recipe with a good amout of fiber, like oats, chia seeds, and check out king arthur flour web site. they have a hi maize flour that has lots of fiber. baking with them is a smart idea, learn about them.
When craving sweets, I look for whole raw fruit like strawberries, if I am craving chocolate then I try to melt a ounce of semi-sweet cholcolate chips and dip the strawberries into it. Much better for me then munching down on M&Ms.
I wish I would have read this YESTERDAY as a reminder... I BLEW it yesterday because I have been CRAVING chocolate for more than a week and yesterday I caved... BIG TIME... oh well, dust myself off and move forward. :O) Today is a new day.

well I have to have my one see's candy everyday other wise I will eat most the box...LOL. I find that if I do it that way it works for me. One a Day.
Great article. I think I'm going to try the brownie and fruit leather recipe. Yum! I also reach for a cup of orange juice when I'm in a pinch, know I'm going to lose control and go on a junk food binge. It works for me and it's better than the alternative. :)
