I have some fruit! Pineapple or pear always kicks my craving.

Keep things in your house that requires a substitute for sugar and make healthy desserts that you can eat. Try keepingTruvia, cocoa powder, Almond Milk/flour in the house.

When it's really bad, I make jello. I have these cute little tubberwares, and the remind me of a shooter. I keep all 5 in the fridge, and when I need sugar, they are there! Perfect to end the craving!

After dinner most nights, I crave sugar like crazy. It's getting better with each day but I was wondering, when you crave sugar and don't want to give in, what do you do? I usually pop some gum in my mouth and chew away the craving. Just curious if any of you have any other ideas or suggestions? I know the cravings will eventually die down as the weeks progress but for now- I want a cookie! But not giving in :)

Thanks for the help!
