  • My sugar cravings have greatly diminished since I joined Spark several weeks ago. They get really bad though when I'm really hungry. I have to plan now when I go out and take a snack with me or I will crumble. So far so good! - 4/2/2016 8:51:27 PM
  • I like the hint about drinking a glass of water and waiting 10 minutes before indulging. Thanks! - 3/17/2016 12:01:45 PM
  • My doctor said one oatmeal chocolate chip cookie a day won't hurt me -- so I bake them myself and freeze them and eat one a day -- and always include in on my tracker. I ate an orange today, and it made me very, very hungry -- that was just wrong! - 1/26/2016 5:59:49 PM
  • Completely agree, sugar can be an addiction. Get away from refined sugars, and not only will you not crave them as much, you will begin to really appreciate the natural sweetness of whole unsweetened fruits and veggies.

    Try to eat local, in season vine ripened fruits an veggies to appreciate their sweetness. Try fully ripened sweet corn straight out of the field, or tomatoes right off the vine.

    My personal favorite treat is fresh strawberries, dipped in just a little dark chocolate. - 1/20/2016 9:24:46 PM
  • Once you stop eating products with sugar, you will lose your sweet tooth, and sweet treats will taste too sweet! - 11/9/2015 10:51:18 AM

  • 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. - 2/27/2014 11:38:44 AM

    stopping artificial sweeteners tomorrow- hoping that this will help long term. - 1/10/2014 11:14:47 PM
  • 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. - 1/10/2014 2:02:18 PM
