Admending My Earlier Secret (substitute Alternatives)
Members Were Sparked
Earlier I said I was substituting Good & Plenty licorice candy for licorice twists, because G & P was eaten slower. By the end of a few days I was starving! Why? I wondered. Lots of fruits and vegetables and whole grains. The only thing I could think of were the G&P candy pieces. I have decided it's too much refined sugar. I'll probably completely stop the G&P and stick with licorice root tea for the flavor. Alas, my licorice cravings go away eventually.

If your craving something that is out of your calorie range, create and play in the kitchen to create a new healthier version. Another good one is to use substitues, freeze pudding cups for 3 hours - is just like soft ice cream and alot less calories and portion controlled.
I buy prepackaged yougurts and puddings and freeze early in the day, log it into my calories, and then later on in the day is a substitute for ice cream-
