have you tried strawberry smoothies or some of the low fat snack bars, slimfast also has some great low calorie candy bars, that can give you the sweets you crave without going over board. what i think works best is set aside 1 day a week that you can have sweets to reward yourself for all your efforts. that day you can have 1 item you crave-1 slice of chocolate cake, a candy bar etc. but only one. this will help give you what you desire without sacrificing your weight loss plan. the whole week you can look forward to the one day you reward yourself. pretty soon the cravings will become less as you follow a healthy eating plan. you can do it! just my opinion. hope this helps.

Hi there - I have researched this topic for c. 20 years and the findings ended up in a book called "Why do you overeat? When all you want is to be slim". It's all about cravings - not just sugar - but bread, biscuits, cakes, even picked food. There are three very common medical conditions, Candida, Food Intolerance and Hypoglycaemia, which cause insatiable food cravings. All three will cause sugar cravings and they will also cause cravings for other foods. Professor John Yudkin wrote a book called "Pure White & Deadly", which was about sugar, not heroin! He thought sugar was one of the world's most addictive substances and I agree with him. You can contact me via the whydoyouovereat website (I'll happily mail you a free book - I want to help you). There's quite a bit of info and free questionnaires on the harcombe diet website. Check out the you tube videos and they will explain exactly what the 3 conditions are and how they cause sugar cravings. This is not your fault! You're a sugar addict, just like an alcoholic craves alcohol. It can be fixed, but you will need to come off sugar totally and only eat real food (meat, fish, eggs, cheese, milk, other dairy products, veg, salad, fruit, brown rice, whole meal pasta, baked potatoes, etc) The book will explain the withdrawal symptoms you will go through (just for 4-5 days) , what you need to eat to make sure you don't get hungry and lose the weight you've just put on. It will also explain how you will be able to go back to eating anything but the key things you must do to make sure the addiction doesn't come back. Hope to hear from you! All the best - Zoe

i could advise which you %. on clean fruit or dried friut. clean fruit like grapes are super to fulfill the candy yearning which you're having, they are additionally a good source of fibre and of path far unfastened. i'm additionally a 'picker' and decide for the dried fruit decision, raisins, sultanas, apricots etc... they are needless to say candy, fat unfastened, and while they fruit is dried the nutritional fee is going up dramatically! Raisins for occasion are no longer basically severe in fibre yet in addition a good source of iron and calcium! in case you like slightly bit crunch then exchange the cerial for a sort of nuts like almonds, brazils and cashews. Nuts are severe in organic fatty acid which facilitates to combat undesirable fat (saturated fat), additionally super for different needed food.

I find that eating a few sultanas stops the sugar craving without having to pig out - but I'm not really sure if this will help you. Are you allowed sultanas?
