  • I prefer fruit to cookies or candy
  • In addition to overall eating sweets were one of my biggest down falls. Spark is helping me to change all that and since I have plenty of failed diet attempts from the past I have mentally prepared myself for this to be my lifestyle change forever.
  • I try hard not to give in to sweets. I eat raw colored carrots or a sweet potato with my meal. If I have a big urge I eat a piece of fruit.

    I say no sweets today, but will treat myself tomorrow. I will say the same thing the next day and tomorrow never seems to come for me. I have been treat-free for 90 days.
  • My sweet tooth is one of my biggest challenges. Last night I managed to stave it off with a piece of a candy cane. Not what I wanted, but I was proud to except a moment of control.one step at a time.
  • Yes, like everyone else I enjoy the gratification of a sweet treat! Am constantly trying to find alternatives.... In the UK, I suppose we have different products which amount to the same thing!! I'm not a chocolate person, but I really enjoy a hot pudding with fresh cold Custard... Unfortunately, that comes in at a whopping 800 calories lol! I've started getting tinned rice pudding (portion 190 calories) and the occasion egg Custard tart (approx 240), I'm trying not to feel deprived and atm, that's working x
  • The smart options seem to contradict the premise of eating whole foods.
  • Great ideas to satisfy my sweet tooth!

  • Good sweet snack suggestions. Am posting these on my frig at mom's house also.
  • Instead of cocoa powder, I mixed a pkt of instant hot chocolate with vanilla Greek yogurt....OMG....bliss!
  • good information....
  • While I do enjoy sweets, I no longer crave them. Like another reader, I allow myself a piece of cake on Friday night (and only if I've done well all week). Frozen grapes satisfy my sweet tooth other times. 10 grapes eaten slowly are yummy.

    It helps, but it's a life long thing, and sugar craving will be replaced by some other craving that will bug you, too! Maybe control for awhile but no cure.
  • Great article with good suggestions. I am amazed at all the place sugar hides in.
  • I went cold turkey on sweets and I'm OK with it. My dietician allows me a piece of unfrosted cake for the Friday night Sabbath meal and one for the Saturday lunch Sabbath meal. That's it for me, for the week, and it's OK. It gives me something to look forward to. I might eat a piece of fruit for the sweetness, coupled with a dozen raw nuts for the protein. I might eat a plain rice cake for something to crunch on. But I certainly am able to totally ignore Drake's Cakes or Entemann's now. I save my cake quota for my own home-baked cake on the weekend.
