I am avoiding processed foods, artificial sweetners, candy and ice cream. I can't trust myself to limit my portions. I think it's all or nothing with me. I'm trying to replace sweets with fruits or nuts.
Sugar is addictive and it acts much the same way on your brain as coke, and other hard drugs.
I, also, stopped drinking sodas last year. Although I only drank one or two diet sodas a day, it seemed to help.

The 100 calories snacks sound like a great idea, but once I eat a little sugar I get hungrier sooner and I don't want fruits and veggies. I want more sugar. As long as I make myself stay away from the sugar I'm ok. I think it has something to do with sugar raising and then dropping the blood sugar so quickly.

Actually, I've gone towards veggies more often now days, too. It's another way to be sure to get in enough vegetables and the more I eat them, the more I crave them.

I've been moving slowly away from fruit as my go to and learning to delve into the multitude of veggies out there as they tend to have less sugar than the fruit and use fruit for special treats.

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.

Hubby and I treat ourselves to smoothies a few times a week instead of ice cream. Right now we're getting loads of cherries from our cherry trees and freezing those. I put in a cup of milk, a small banana and cherries to taste.

Once a month, we go out for really good premium ice cream.

One of our discussion forums is Recipes, & I'm hoping people post healthy recipes. I have a book of Sugar-less desserts; no artificial anything, just sweetened with the fruit that's in them. There's one I posted for apple crisp, where apples & raisins are the only sweetener. SP has some great recipe ideas as well. emoticon

For me fruit is the alternative. When I try to use what seem like more healthy processed type foods, I often turn them into my new binge food. I don't do that with fruit.

BTW, I just realized I have a big bunch of red grapes in the fridge and I looked up Red Grape Smoothie and there are some neat recipes so I'm going to have my first Red Grape Smoothie today. emoticon

Good Afternoon team, so since joining this challenge I've been on a mission to find healthier alternatives to satisfy my sweet tooth. This morning I was packing my lunch and for the first time actually looked at the package of 100 calorie cookies I was about to toss in my bag. 7 grams of sugar! 11 little bitty cookies, 100 calories, and 7 grams of sugar! I am happy to announce that upon my recent trip to the commissary I discovered chocolate rice cakes! For just 120 calories (yes, 20 more calories * 60 calories a piece* ) I can have two big rice cakes. As far as sugar goes, for both cakes I'm coming in at a 8 grams of sugar (4 grams a piece). The numbers seem higher but rice cakes are definitely better than cookies, more filling, larger, and I even prefer the taste... the best part? I don't feel guilty for eating chocolate! Isn't that nearly every girl's dream? :)

Have you found any healthier alternatives? What are some healthy snacks that you prefer?

Never give up, Never surrender.
