    When I want something sweet I eat sugar free jello or sugar free popsicles. They are so good! lol the popsicles have 15 calories- you can't beat that :) Also sugar free pudding if you crave chocolate - and what woman doesn't emoticon

    I buy the jello sugar free snack packs, sugar free apple sauce and fruit bowl snacks. They help curve the carving and they are only 60-70 calories. Also I drink plenty of ice water with a twist of lemon. Sometimes I crush a glass of ice, add water, squeeze a few drops of lemon/lime into it, add a sweetener (Equal, etc)and a straw.
That helps me fight my cravings for sweets. emoticon

    I crave sweets all the time and something sweet after I eat meals is the worst. Anyone have any tricks for losing this craving.
