I chew SF cinnamon gum (Dentyne Fire is my favorite) or have an Atomic Fire Ball. On days when that won't cut it, Dove's Dark Chocolate Promises

I like to place a piece of hard candy in my mouth, like Werther's original, or I chew some really flavorful sugar free gum.

I budget calories for something sweet at the end of the day. It has to be something real and not a diet sweet. Diet food doesn't satisfy and makes me crave even more

I have a box of red hots. Just a few helps so I only get a few calories out of it. I also used to have little hugs chocolate. Just one or two. That is how I started out. It takes time.

I eat one small piece of candy or something like cinnamon almonds w/Greek yogurt (mixed). I also eat fruit, but sometimes fruit doesn't cut it (like when it's that time of the month) and so I just eat one small piece of candy as mentioned above and savor it slowly.

Most of the time, I have fruit. But sometimes I have whatever I want in moderation. I like the Vita
chocolate muffin tops if I crave chocolate. I also sometimes have marscapone cheese and honey over fruit.

I indulge it in moderation. I find most of the time I love Greek yogurt with fruit. So yummy and satisfying. If I want chocolate I have it. If I want a cupcake I have it. Frozen yogurt-I have it. No foods are off limits. I am creating a lifestyle not a punishment. I have made changes in how I have my treats. I eat dark chocolate instead of milk chocolate. I have a cupcake without frosting. I have low fat frozen yogurt instead full fat. I also plan it in my calories for the day.

If you like dark chocolate you could have a piece every now and then. It's better for you than milk chocolate. Also, there's a lot of "100 calorie" snacks out there. If you like yogurt, that's a good option too.

I have an awful sweet tooth, I crave sweets after a meal and I do mean every meal....well maybe not after breakfast cause I usually have oatmeal with splenda so I've already gotten something sweet.

I remember years ago I found that low calorie hot cocoa was the trick for me, I need to get some of that in the house....

What is your trick when you have that sweet tooth? Do you give in and have a little something? Do you have a stash of low fat/cal chocolate?
