Right when i began to feel a sweet tooth approaching I go straight to the fridge and grab a apple. A lot of the problem with eating bad and you know you shouldn't is because you sit there and keep thinking about it then your mind starts wondering around the kitchen seeing what you have that will trigger that urge to be intense. Instead of falling off the deep end get up right when you feel like you want something & grab you some fruit, Can't regret what you didn't do. GOOD LUCK!

Just a quick tip to allow small indulgences without having to avoid the man in your life who likes to always take you out to dinner, or bring home your favorite fruit smoothie from the local ice creamery .
My BF has a habit of picking up fruit smoothies for us when he comes home from playing ball at the YMCA. Instead of refusing his kindness I break the calories down with my $0.69 Popsicle mold from the Dollar tree.
That medium McDonalds Strawberry Banana smoothie become 10 frozen treats!
Staying on Track while still indulging your sweet tooth
I have problems with my sweet tooth. But it is a fact that cinnamon can help against it! So when I have a sweet tooth attack that just won't go away I take a apple and quarter it and sprinkle some cinnamon on it. Eating the apple slowly you can just feel the sweet tooth go away.
