    I scroll thru my list of favorites or my food groups and look for something I enjoy thar will fit into my food for the day. I almost always can find something reasonable that satisfies the craving.

    When l crave chocolate, l have a Hershey Kiss or a mini chocolate it takes care of the craving with less calories.

    If I ignore my cravings, I will eat everything in sight including that donut, until I feel satisfied. So I also give in to them.

    I don't have many cravings but when I do I tend to give in to them and get it out of my system. Maybe an extra exercise, a longer walk for the dog or have a lighter dinner that day. If I go without satisfing my craving I will eat everything in sight except the doughnut~ =)
