from Orange county! I have a sweet tooth, too, but have found a few things that seem to help. Strawberries are good but I also like blueberries or mixed berries. If I mix frozen berries with some Fage Total 0% Greek Yogurt with a little Splenda, it is every bit as good as ice cream! I also find that adding a little mint to my water seems to help, even though it's not really sweet, and of course all kinds of fruit - but the best part is that when you get totally weaned off sugar, that old sweet tooth seems to settle down a lot. In other words, eating sugar starts up the cravings and once I get thru the 'withdrawals,' I don't miss it as much as I would have predicted.

Excited about this site and starting a healthy lifestyle! My main issue is sweet tooth and especially after dinner, I know I feel so much better in the morning when I don't eat heavy at night and especially candy but what are some low cal sweets that can help? Strawberries are already on my list!
