This is going to sound weird, but I swear it's true. I got a warning from the doctor that I need more calcium. So, I ran out and bought several kinds of yogurt, especially Oikos chocolate Greek yogurt, and started eating more of it. And, believe it or not, eating that yogurt, drinking more cocoa, and even drinking almond milk has almost completely cured my sweet tooth. I used to crave cookies, candy, brownies, muffins...anything sweet almost all the time. And now that's gone! Try it! It works!!!
As extra proof, I made a batch of my favorite chocolate chip cookies for my sons for Valentine's day. And I ate exactly ONE!!! This, from a woman who regularly would eat 10 or 12 cookies all by myself.

Remove all nuts and dairy from your diet for three weeks, see how you feel and see if this helps you to lose pounds. You might be Allergic or just sensitive to these products which can halt weight loss.
A fruits and veggies detox is a GREAT way to lose some weight quicky if you can't get motivated (like I was) and it has TWO FOLDED BENEFITS, not only to you lose the weight but since you're off sugar, breads, pasta, rice all those carbs, all dairy, salt and caffine --
the detox helps you to get rid of all those CRAVINGS for those BAD THINGS!!!! It's WONDERFUL!!!! I lost 7.5 lbs and have not had one true craving for any of it -- I only thought I craved a food because I saw it not that I had a taste for it ...
