Christmas. Nothing gives me more joy than to celebrate my Christ's birthday.

I try to wait out the craving the best I can, if it doesn't go away I allow myself a sensible portion of what I am craving and then stop.

I'm trying to eliminate sweets because I have no brakes once I start eating them!

What do you do when you have a craving for something sweet?



I allow myself a sensible portion of what I am craving and then stop. I have found when I try to not eat what I am craving that I eventually give in and eat way to much.

I try to ignore most of them but will allow myself a reasonable portion sometimes.

Walking, Vegetarian, Meditation, Yoga, Reiki, Chakras, Crystals and fun of course... Just a few of the things I'm interested in. It takes time to balance it all but it can be done.

It depends on the day. Some times, on a good day, I can wait it out and not buckle. Then there are days when I know that I'll cave, so I just do it. I try not to set myself up for failure.

Great definitions. Thanks for taking the time!

What do you do when you have a craving for something sweet?



I try to wait out the craving the best I can.

I use substitutions, like tea or gum.

I usually indulge my craving, eating until I am stuffed.

I allow myself a sensible portion of what I am craving and then stop.
