I ditto my previous comment
I can do this.
When I want something sweet there are herbal teas that have no sugar but the ingredients taste sweet.
Good article Thankyou
This blog has it right on the nose
I was wanting a little something sweet last night... but I was capped out on my calorie intake. I pulled out my favorite grapes... Cotton Candy Grapes... from the freezer, measured out a cup of them and enjoyed them while I read. I got the sweets fix and the book helped distract me from going back for anything else! Won that battle, which makes me better prepared for the next! :D
Moderation in all foods is the answer for me.
I rarely buy packages of any sweet treats nor do I have the ingredients at home to make them from scratch. What I do is head to the bakery and buy an individual cookie or cupcake or whatever I'm hankering for. That way I can indulge my craving but don't have a lot to "finish" off.
We enjoyed baked apples in the Fall and fresh berries in the Spring, fruit is always a good dessert.
Good ideas, but still believe some diet foods are good to satisfy cravings.
