I am the same way, but my worst time is evening. I can do great all day and then around 7pm my sugar demons come out and I will inhale all within my path emoticon

I can't use fruit any more except small amounts of berries. It drives up my blood sugar up almost as much as straight candy. Most fruit is bred for very high sugar levels nowadays. Just look at the ads in seed catalogs.

You can talk to God all you want and that's great, but the changes happen when you start listening to him.

I try to use fruit and dark chocolate to satisfy my sweet tooth. Not always successfully, but that is the plan.

I'm with you @HOUND, gradually shift the tastebuds.

You gain strength, courage and confidence by every experience in which you really stop to look fear in the face.

Mistakes are the portals of discovery.

Don't be afraid to give your best at what seemingly are small jobs. Every time you conquer one it makes you that much stronger. If you do the little jobs well, the big ones will tend to take care of themselves.

It is never too late to be what you might have been.

What helped me is to go to gradually darker and darker chocolate. I now enjoy 85% dark chocolate, which has very little sugar. The other option is to get 100% Ghirardelli chocolate and melt and add some Xylitol or other sugar-free sweetener (and if you like some nuts or coconut).

I'm 45 years old with an 8 yr. old daughter whose sweet tooth is almost as bad as mine. I'm a closet eater to boot. I sneak what I can when no one is looking. My worst time of day is the afternoon. I start with lunch and don't seem to stop. I've been trying to replace the sweet with peanut butter or fruit this week and I did ok even though I'm still going over my calorie range. At least I did ok until today. Now I have the Halloween excuse that I had to have candy to pass out. At least I did buy stuff I really don't like. Hopefully it goes fast.
