i love the fiber one oats and chocolate bar. when you haven't had much in the way of sweets for a while they taste really good. i've also started using plexus slim, a product many of my friends are using. it helps a lot with sweets cravings. i usually do NOT advocate any type of 'help' losing weight but this seems to work, although not as quickly for me as for my friends. drat, lol
I think women and sweets are a given. I try not to have any in the home because my willpower when it comes to sweets is not what it should be. I do have the 90 calorie fiber one brownie. I usually only have one. Have had two in a day though, but it's within the calorie range. But still not as good as another piece of fruit would be.
I have been pretty diligent with my food for the last week or so, but yesterday there were so many sweets around I knew I'd crack. So I found some good dark chocolate (I prefer milk chocolate, but I tend to shovel it in), checked out the nutritional information so I could track it and I ate it very slowly and mindfully with my eyes closed. I actually laughed out loud because it was so good.

I love my chocolates. It is a burden I work on. I'm getting better but still need to cut down.

One thing I like to do is keep something small and sweet on hand so that I don't feel the need to buy stuff when I get a craving. One hershy kiss is waaay better than getting a chocolate bar from the vending machine.

You don't need to stay away altogether.
You just need to lower the amount of sweets you have. If you don't feel like sweets then dont have any, but there will be times when you crave something sugary.
When I crave something I will go and buy the smallest thing I can find. I may buy one mini freddo frog. Or I will have 2 or 3 potato chips. Just enough to stop my craving but not enough to do any really damage to my diet.
If you dont want to eat anything sweet at all then I find going for a quick walk, or quickly drinking a glass of water helps to get rid of my cravings.
Or maybe you can trying something sweet with not many caleries. Try some chocolate coated nutes or a low calerie tub of icecream. There are lots of alternates you can try.
Hello all. I'm in week two of my diet. I haven't had any soda which is a big feat for me because I was drinking probably 2 20oz Diet Cokes a day. I've lost 6 pounds so far (probably water weight). I'm having trouble with staying away from sweets. Today at work I bought a brownie from a restaurant in the office building where I work. I can't even find out the calories of what I ate and it made me sick. I've been drinking water and eating fruits, vegetables, and meats. Any ideas on how to stay away from the sweets?
