I am addicted to sweets! Gotta gotta have them. I may be the last one to discover this but Skinny Cow is a brand of ice cream and most of their products are under 150 calories! Try 'em out. They have ice cream sandwiches, caramel ice cream cones, and other stuff. I eat them at least three times a week, and I don't feel guilty about it!

Your spouse can be a huge help. Every time I crave chips or sweets during the night, he gets to tickle me or do something I can't stand. It sounds weird, but I have to choose between having sweets and getting tickled or having something healthier.
Grapes are a natural sweet treat....so when you have the urge to munch on sweets that are not good for you...grab a handful of grapes. Having a frozen snack attack??? Got that covered too....freeze some grapes in a plastic freezer bag to retain freshness...when you desire frozen sweets....grab them magical grapes!!!!!277

So I bring some jelly beans or on biscuit with me to give me that sweet boost without going mad. I guess jelly beans might be another secret as they give a great sweet boost without having to eat loads100
