Sweet cravings



Recommended Posts

Hey all,

so every night after dinner those sweet cravings hit. I can not handle SF pudding any longer. I am to the point of nausea just thinking about it.

I need some ideas.. anyone!!!!

I love chocolate & if I have a chocolate craving I have it. One small piece, I let it melt in my mouth and I am satisfied.

If I crave something, I have it, one piece will satisfy me and the craving goes away. I don't believe in anything being off limits.

It's a lifestyle, not a diet (for me)!

Skinny Cow makes some really good, low calorie, Cookies and candies. Of course you want to stick to the serving size recommended and add it into your daily calorie allowance, but they're great to satisfy cravings.

Healthy Choice makes some frozen Greek yogurt that's good, too.

I agree with ajtexas- it's a lifestyle change not a diet. You can have treats just in moderation. I know I do!

The skinny cow icecream bars on ocassion are yum a dum, I also like the SF creamer for my coffee (pumpkin spice or carmel macchiato), Jello has SF choc mousse which I really like. However, I do indulge from time to time on a snack size piece of candy (1 or 2 pieces) of hershey's kisses or a snack size candy bar (like the Halloween ones). I count it in my daily calories and don't do it all the time but once in a while, it's yummy. Also SF jello w/ light whipped cream is good too.

If you have one...and I mean only one Hershey's kiss now and then it won't kill you....and it will satisfy your craving. But only step out of bounds if you can control yourself to stick to the limits.

I like a handful of frozen grapes every now and then. I love dried fruit too like apricots or pineapple.< /p>

I like hot chocolate for my sometimes cravings, or a small piece of dark chocolate.< /p>

No ands if or buts about it, when I have. Craving it cannot be satiated without a LOT of sugar. One or two little chocolates won't cut it, nor one cookie. I have to eat until I can really feel that drug hitting my bloodstream, I suspect the cravings that hit me each afternoon have a more biological origin in my body than just fancying a bit of something.

Easy answer for me, tough it out. I cannot do sweets in moderation.

I know exactly how you feel. Sweets are like my drug. And I own a bakery :( fantastic combination right?! Lol I allow myself to have something nearly everyday. I keep it in my calorie range and I'm still losing weight. If the urge is still there, Fiber one makes these great 90 calorie brownies and Cookies that hold me over really well. I recommend giving into your craving because if you don't, you may binge later and it's only downhill from there. Trust me, by the time you get to 1/2 a cupcake, you'll feel satisfied. I was a 6 pack of cupcakes kind of girl and now I'm satisfied with only a 1/2. Any more than that and I feel gross. Christmas cookie production is very hard right now so I try to keep it to one cookie a day. And they're small...usually only 100 calories worth which is manageable. Maybe for every sweet u eat, u could exercise what it takes to burn that amount? I try to do that whenever I can. I just keep reminding myself how I was in the bathroom all day long before...and until Lapland I thought that was normal. Now normal is so nice and I'm not running to the bathroom every hour because of the constant sugar and fat in my system. :/ tmi, I know...but it's reality. ;)

Super Walmart has lots of SF Creamers, I use a plain one in my hot tea. Also, Blue Bunny makes the best SF ice cream "Sweet Freedom." I eat a spoonful, it is great! Also at Super Walmart.

      I have no clue where to upload this, so I'll put it here. This is pre-op vs the morning of my 6 month appointment! In office I weight 232, that's 88 lbs down since my highest weight, 75 lbs since my surgery weight! I can't believe this jacket fit... I am smaller now than the last time I was this size which the surgeon found really amusing. He's happy with where I am in my weight loss and estimates I'll be around 200 lbs by my 1 year anniversary! My lowest weight as an adult is 195, so that's pretty damn exciting to think I'll be near that at a year. Everything from there will be unknown territory!!

      I changed my profile image to a molecule of protein. Why? Because I am certain that it saved my life.

        That's brilliant! You've done amazing!! I should probably think about changing my profile picture at some point. Mine is the doll from Squid Games. Ironically the whole premise of the show is about dodging death. We've both done that...

      Two years out. Lost 120 , regained 5 lbs. Recently has a bout of Norovirus, lost 7 pounds in two days. Now my stomach feels like it did right after my surgery. Sore, sensitive to even water.  Anyone out there have a similar experience?
