I do the same thing sometimes. My first tip, try to distract yourself through the craving. This works for me most of the time, I'll sip on water and do something to keep my mind busy so I can't think of sweets.

My second tip, moderation. If it is too bad, I will eat a skinny cow ice cream sandwich, or spread a TB of nutella on a graham cracker. It's not the end of the world to indulge a little, just record what you are eating so you hold yourslef more accountable.

At least once a day I get the craving for something sweet. I eat a piece of fresh fruit or maybe drink some tea with honey and lemon and it doesn't chase away the craving. There are times when I come real clcose to stopping at the store and buying a 1/2 gallon of ice cream or crackers. Need some help to keep me from going in the wrong direction. Please Help!
