To satisfy my craving for sweets and chocolate and get the fiber I need, I have one Fiber One Chewy bar (my favorite is the oats & chocolate) as my snack at night with 1 cup of fat-free milk and i'm good for the night.
I add this on my tracking in the morning so I make sure it fits within my calorie intake. Sometimes I substitute Quakers Chewy Granola Bars for the Fiber one bars when I need less fiber after tracking all my other foods.

I get my sweet craving at night after dinner. I don't feel like i've finished eating for the day until I have had a taste of something sweet - so I have 2 stand bys: Dark (70%) Chocolate and Gummy Vitamins. I don't have the chocolate every night, but I do have the vitamins! I take 2 gummy multis, 2 gummy C's and 2 gummy calciums. Its a handful of candy and a 60 calorie treat that has some real benefits.
If you crave sweets, it could be a sign that you consume too much salt. Other possiblilities are lack of sleep or poor nutrition. Sometimes we also mistake thirst for hunger. Water is a powerful appetite suppressant and that why drinking water is so important.
