Hi Welcome to the team. I can relate to deliberately seeking unhealthy snacks. But I find that the more i eat food that is close to its natural state the less I enjoy junk food. When I pay attention to what I am eating, that is eat it slowly and pay attention to how it feels and tastes I find that I really do not enjoy it as much as I used to.

I look forward to hearing how you tame that sweet tooth.

Hi, welcome!
What worked well for me was to decide to just cut sugar and artificial sweeteners out for two weeks. I learned a LOT in those two weeks, it became clear how much better I felt and that it was doable.
I wrote in my blog a while ago about my experiences with cutting out sugar, here:

emoticon I would like to reduce sugar and sugar substitutes and eat more fruits and veggies as well as other healthy foods. I find myself ever in the conundrum of stumbling into or deliberately seeking an unhealthy yucky snack which does not make me feel good for long except for momentary satisfaction. That said there was a tray of homemade peanut butter cookies in the lobby/common area and I did have one but it was a wholesome not frosted chocolate goodie. I am trying to make better choices but had one really not so good for you snack today in the afternoon. Luckily I shared. But, I think that I am prone to eat the sweets out of depression or anxiety as comfort foods, rewards, and for energy though that seems like an oxymoron. Let it be said though, I am probably addicted to the stuff but don't want to face up to it. When I have had resolve, I have always lost it. In a world filled with junk food, I am honestly trying to get better at choosing healthier foods. Though, it seems I can't pass up the almost daily opportunity to grab a sweet. emoticon emoticon emoticon emoticon emoticon emoticon

Maybe I can try and learn from my mistakes! emoticon Hoping that I can learn! emoticon
