Thanks for all the great ideas! There are quite a few I'll try next time I have a craving emoticon

I'd been good avoiding the sweets left in the break room. Today I splurged an almond rocca and put me over my limit. Dang it!

Air popped corn sprinkled with cinnamon seems to stop my cravings!

I have tea or diet soda. I also try to distract myself, and sometime give in and have a mini candy bar.

I let myself have it, but then I don't have any more sweet treats for at least a week. I did not follow this strategy during the holidays, though. Sometimes, you just have to splurge and be done with it and get right back on track. Easier said than done, but that seems to work for me. Sometimes if I don't give in, I will eat a bunch of other food I really didn't want that adds up to more calories than the sweet treat I really wanted.

I have a 'splurge' time. Not gluttonous, but a treat on occasion and then get right back on track.

I give in every so often. A life without Snickers peanut butter doesn't appeal to me at all!

I have almonds for a snack mixed with a few of those Brookside chocolate pieces. The teeny bit of chocolate seems to take off the edge.

By preventing them!

Seriously. I notice that I have cravings when I'm not eating well. Either I haven't enough in terms of calories or I haven't had enough fat or protein in my diet. I also plan things that I used to crave into my diet.

For example, I really like peanut butter. So my after workout snack is a slice of whole multi grain bread with 2 tbsps. peanut butter. I really like chocolate. So I have a chocolate protein shake every morning that tastes like chocolate milk. I like oatmeal chocolate chip cookies so I have a Fiber One Oats and chocolate chip bar every morning.

I've found planning healthier substitutes and including them in my regular diet keeps me going nuts over the unhealthier foods.

I crave sugar daily and trying to trick my mouth into believing it's had it when I drink diet soda or something like that doesn't work for me. Sometimes I give in, sometimes I can feel the craving and tell myself that it is ok to want something and not have it. Depends how stressed out I am I will be able to bear it, or I will just inhale it.

I keep Skinny Cow frozen fudge bars in the freezer at all times, or Italian Ice cups, frozen yogurt, or Blue Bunny no sugar added light ice creams in the freezer.

Plan for tomorrow, but enjoy the heck out of today.

Something sweet but healthy like grapes, or if it's really bad a tbsp of honey.

I usually grab some strawberries, slice them and add some light cool whip on top, I'm satisfied.

Sometimes I drink green tea and the craving goes away. But usually I just let myself have about 100 calories of candy, like gummy bears, a day and that keeps things like bingeing on sweets from happening.

When I have a craving I drink about 16 oz of water and that pretty much kills the craving as the full feeling replaces it.

I used to love the fat-free Hunt's chocolate pudding cups (80 calories)....
then another and another and another....
I started realizing that the only thing it meant to me was I could have more.
My bad.......I don't buy them anymore.

I stick to fruit.

I savor a fat-free Hunt's chocolate pudding cup (80 calories) with a large glass of water. T hen I dance to work it off! I think that makes me pretty even.

The only "diet" that works is consistency!

My sweet tooth got the best of me yesterday and caused me to eat about 500cal more than I should have for the day. How do you cope with the cravings?
