Yup, I agree, if you are craving something, don't try to substitute it with something else because you "still" be craving the original item! Just have a small portion and move on.

I'll second that, I'm the same way!
Challenges are what makes life interesting, overcoming them is what makes it meaningful.
Do you have a late-night snack attack trick? I found that for me I have often, during an "I need a chocolate bar" attack, eaten my way through salty popcorn, crunchy chips AND creamy pudding because I wanted to avoid the fattening chocolate. In the end I still wasn't satisfied so I ate the chocolate anyway, of course...so from my experience, it seems better to have a small portion of the actual chocolate bar (or replace with a healthier option as close to it as you can get) so you satisfy that craving without going the high-calorie roundabout way to get there! It helps!
