just make the plunge to give up sugar treats and stick to fruit snacks. also to get a little chocolate every now and then I eat 5 dark chocolate covered almonds with a mix of deluxe nuts . its sweet, its nutty and crunchy. usually satisfies me. since I gave up real sweet treats I really don't crave them any more. sometimes I see something and I may say in my mind that looks good but it doesn't seem to bother me that I don't have any. if I feel I need something other than my almonds then I will have atkins bars that consist of only one or two grams of sugar. its like eating a candy bar. also if I have to cook a cake for someone I will use the no sugar brand on the market. comes in german choc. and yellow. I usually will make cupcakes so that way I only eat one. the kids love it too. I usually icing theirs. not mine. well this helps me.

keep on trucking

For chocolate cravings: would a little cocoa powder in yoghurt or peanut/nut/seed butter on an apple do it? Once I had an odd Halloween-time craving for Reese's peanut butter cups and killed it by mixing peanut butter with cocoa, granulated xylitol, and coconut oil. But on an apple, I wonder if only the peanut butter and cocoa would be needed. Fat really helps us feel satisfied and so peanut butter etc. is a good vehicle for cocoa that also has protein and fiber.

For ice cream cravings: I bought a set of tiny containers sold for freezing baby food. Filling those with ice cream would provide a convenient container for just a few bites that doesn't require the temptation of going to the larger container.

First off, I regularly include small amounts of my favorites.... There's "something" about just knowing it will be there later that lets me usually forget it for now.

If I really need to distract myself, I go check my Nutrition Tracker, and see what I'm shortest on: Carbs, Fat or Protein and make a healthy choice to balance my day better!

For something sweet, try frozen fruit. Grapes, blueberries, cherries (unpitted fine for adults), banana slices are especially easily to freeze although peaches, nectarines, pineapples are easy to cut up first. Just wash the fruit, dry with a paper towel, spread on a metal surface, and stick in the freezer for a few hours or overnight, then put in ziplock bags. They taste very different frozen and seem sweeter that way. Gives you kind of an ice cream fix without the cream. Plus you have to eat them slowly... You can pull out only as much as you want rather than worrying about spoilage in the fridge. I also use them with a protein powder in almond milk (well, not unpitted cherries...) and also pull out a piece when I just need something after swallowing pills. Fruit is good for evenings also because it digests easily and fast - usually it's out of your stomach within half an hour, a little longer for bananas.

Eating filling, satisfying, tasty, healthy food at regular intervals, and drinking lots of water both seem to help.

I really don't find myself craving that much.

Oh, and I think getting as much exercise as I have been getting really helps as well. It helps keep my mood stable, so no emotional eating.

The most effective way for me to manage cravings is to eat a balanced diet; then I experience no junk food cravings.

As for Hazardous Materials, those things most likely to trigger binge eating, I don't keep them at home (I am retired). I take ONE mini Tootsie Roll when I leave Planet Fitness.

I have found that I am more of a grazer than a large meal eater..I eat smaller meals and allow myself 3 to 4 small snacks a day...like a fiber one brownie or 80 calorie cereal, fat free greek yogurt, a piece of fruit..something that is always easy to grab and go..and stay away from caffeine.. I literally used to drink 8 to10 cups of coffee and now just one and the rest is decaf teas..my blood sugar no longer has ups and downs and by eating every couple of hours my cravings are under control.

When I start to getting in that snacky mood I stop and drink water and wait for about 15 minutes. The craving will pass! I also treat myself to little indulgences because everything in moderation!! Depriving myself completely of things I really enjoy is silly to me - so I make sure I measure portion sizes and not overdo it.

I try not to have chips, ice cream, cookies and candy in the house, but I do slip sometimes. If I don't have it, I'm not going to get in the car to go by some. If it is in the house, I "plan" my treat so that it doesn't blow my calorie ranges for the day.

I've learned not to ignore them because whenever I feel like I'm being deprived, I know I'm setting myself up to binge.

I'm also learning to "snack" on fresh fruit and raw veggies, raisins, nuts...instead of Chips Ahoy and Mr. Good Bars.

I don't deprive myself....if I want a cookie, I will have one. Everything in moderation. For the most part, because I am so determined to stick to my lifestyle change, only if the craving is screaming at me, will I indulge. :)

Well,one of the things eating better and working out is helping me with is smoking. Since not smoking makes me want to eat and smoking is shortening my workout times, to maintain my fitness and quitting smoking goals, when I need to smoke I hit a punching bag. I hung it in the corner of my bedroom so I dont have to go far to use it. Just 3-5 minutes gets me over the hump and I can go back to what I was doing! As an added benefit, my mid-section has never gotten tighter faster than when Ive had a punching bag as part of my workouts!!! :)

It depends:
I review my daily trackers (food and activity) and see if I can afford a snack. If so, then I aim for something low calorie.
I also ask myself if i'm hungry or just feel like eating (Bored? stressed?).
I try to distract myself with activities.
I also use other strategies already mentioned here - brush my teeth, drink water, go for walk.

What we see depends mainly on what we look for.
Choose your attitude.

If it's in the evening and no more calories left, hot tea with a pinch of milk. If you have a sweet tooth, put a packet or two of stevia (no cal sweetener) in it.

I brush my teeth, and then I put in my "night guard" that keeps me from grinding my teeth while I sleep. I can't eat with the guard in, and for some reason, once the night guard is in, I am distracted from the thought of eating. I do this shortly after dinner each night to reduce late night snacking.

If I can manage it to fit into my calorie count for the day I have a small portion of the temptation or if it's something that they have in those "100 calorie" packs I'll have that instead. Like yesterday I wanted fruit pie but instead I had one of those 100 calorie special k blueberry fruit crisps.

Another thing that I find highly effective is going and brushing my teeth. Sounds weird, but it's a distraction and the minty freshness in your mouth makes you not want to eat for a bit. Usually it's long enough to make the craving go away.

Sometimes I am able to focus on something else enough to no longer crave something-other times-I just have to give in. Giving in, isn't a bad thing.

With Moderation. If its something ridiculous like tiramissou or eclairs, I have a very small portion very infrequently. Maybe once or twice a month. Otherwise I manage with fruit, fat free cool whip, and shave one square of dove dark on top. Usually around 150 cals max depending on the fruit and it totally feels like a decadent desert.

I cut out most of the caffeine, I was getting blood sugar swings like crazy where it would get really low...and come on within 2 hours of eating and huge cravings, I finally got it that the 8 cups of coffee I was drinking a day caused it, I am down to one or 2 cups a day and the rest is herbal chai with fat free half and half or soymilk. I like Celestial Seasonings Decaf Coconut Chai..it helps with the sweet cravings

I drink water if I cannot fit a portion within my calorie range. If the nutrition tracker shows that I can have some, I do. I don't keep 'problem' foods in the house though - sweets that I find difficult to portion.

I think I have finally lost my cravings.. I saw the jelly beans at the grocery store check out and wasn't tempted. I cut out grains except rice... Occasionally... basically that means no processed food and no gluten.. I am not gluten intolerant or celiac . I did this because of cancer and fat. I realize that whole grains and white grains are not much different. I get my carbs from vegetables. Then I started the Mercola mini fast since I am not diabetic but look like I should be... Some days like today I go swimming so I don't eat breakfast. I have coffee and almond milk. I work out for a couple of hours and come home for high protein. this means going 16 hours of fast some days... It does something to the body's leptin and I don't get craving...I don't do this on work days... just some days that I can do it.

Water with lemon and having one day per week to indulge, meaning, I try to stick to my daily calorie max but if I go over it's okay. I try not to go over the 500 calories per day deficit.

Someone else mentioned Good Earth herbal tea. It used to work for me too, but I recently bought a new box, and now I feel more hungry after I drink it. Anyone else feel this way?

Now they have artificial flavors in the ingredient list, so maybe that's why. They used to be a small company, but they got bought out, and now it just seems like they cut costs. They don't even have the little sayings on the teabag tags.

Definitely Water, first and foremost. Second would be using cinnamon. It curbs my sweet tooth!

Drinking water - with MIO and MInt. I also remind myself that "Nothing can taste as good, as feeling Healthy and Lean Feel!" It's also working because on the Ideal Protein Protocol I've cleansed my system of my food addictions, too. Good luck everyone! I wish you Great Success!!!

Blessings for good health, prosperity and a life filled with ABUNDANT JOY!

Suger snap peas are really good. They do not sound too good but they are. And if you like to eat crunchy things, these are good. It reminds me of eating potatoe chips. Maybe even sweet potatoe chips. Try it. You will like them. They come in a bag (clear) and are crispy. They help to knock down cravings.

Having an apple usually helps me, plus they're easy to carry in your purse and stay good for a long time in the veg drawer of the fridge. But my biggest downfall is opening the fridge and seeing some yummy leftovers I just want to devour!

I was so proud of myself for going to the movies & not getting any popcorn last week! At 1st it was like torture smelling it & hearing everyone around me in the theater crunching away, but as soon as the movie started, I forgot about it. Sometimes you just have to have willpower.

I get cravings for sweets every day. I keep some dark chocolate hershey kisses on hand. I allow myself 2 a day...they are so rich that I don't feel the need for more.

Plan ahead, plan ahead, plan ahead...i always have some type of "treat" in my office or at home that i can go to in an emergency, but they are always "calorie-friendly" treats so i trick myself...i fall for it every time and then i'm good and satisified.

I'm trying to drink more green tea at work in between snacks and main meals. I'm hoping that controls my random spurts of hunger throughout the day. I usually keep some rice crackers/cakes to have with peanut butter if I want something salty. Also, a square or two of Lindt Dark (70 or 85%) chocolate is something I have a few times a week for a decadent treat. I find the darker the chocolate, the less I need to satisfy my craving!
