I've tried drinking a cup of coffee every time I want to eat sweets, I munch on raw green beans or raw carrots instead, I drink orange juice (although there is natural sugar in that it isn't as much as in a Hershey bar).
I don't know what to try next. Yesterday I got in the car to go get ice cream (chocolate extreme blizzard with extra stuff), the craving was so bad.
So if anyone has a way to help, I'd appreciate hearing it, too.
EDIT: I just read girly_girl's comment, and Shirley's hub. Thanks for the link -- it's great advice.
It is very difficult, but I just said no, unless it was special occasion. When I was pregnant with my daughter, I ate tons of sweets, and I gained way too much weight. I will eat a cookie, occasionally, and sweets on special occasions, but I don't even think about sweets on a daily basis.
I don't keep sweets around the house on a regular basis. That way I'm not as tempted to eat them, and when I do have a craving, I have to decide if it's really serious enough to make a special trip to the store. Usually it's not.
When I do get sweets, I get higher quality stuff. Even though it's more expensive, it satisfies me more with a smaller amount, so I break even both in dollars and calories. As often as not, I find that it's really the fat in a pint of Ben and Jerry's or a bar of 72% cocoa dark chocolate that I'm craving anyway, not the sugar. I can eat a small cup of B&J's and be satisfied, where lower quality ice cream will take a heaping bowlful.
I very rarely have sweets in the house since one of my kids is a diabetic. But when I do, it's little things like Hershey Kisses. When I get a chocolate craving, one little Hershey Kiss can satisfy it just as well as a piece of chocolate cake.
Everytime you have a temptation to eat sweets think about how the sugar just turns to fat. That seemed to have worked for me. I haven not had a sugary soft drink or chocolate in over a month and I dropped ten pounds. I have gotten into a habit of eating fruit in place of the sweet stuff and now I crave the fruit rather than the things I shouldn't eat. Hopefully I can keep this up for another ten pounds??
Sugar is an important part of nutrition..but sugar can take many forms. There is fructose, which is a simple sugar thata can be found in fruits and certain root vegetables like beets. Glucose which is a byproduct of the body's metabolism. Finally, there is sucrose, which is a combination of fructose and glucose. It is commonly known as sugar. When metobalized, it is broken down into fructose and glucose.
It's important to remember that our bodies require sugar in moderate amounts, but from what is written before me, there is a concern of over-consumption of sugar.
If this is the case, then I agree that one should not purchase these items as a temptation for weak times of need. For me, I drink a lot of water (5L per day) and eat lots of fruit and vegetables. I use to be addicted to sugar -- in tea, coffee, desserts, candies, cake, you name it. Even ate it off a spoon whenever I had the chance.
I found that once I was able to cut back on the intake, my taste for sugar changed. The less I ate it, the more I noticed it in other foods. Before long, these foods became too sweet for me to eat. That's how I cut back on my sugar intake.
I lived for decades without ever eating anything sugary (except when someone gave me candy for a holiday). You just get used to not eating it after a while. The one thing I did do, though, was have a cup of tea every day after lunch and add a single packet of sugar. I saw it as my "dessert" - and it got the taste of whatever salad I'd eaten (sometimes tuna or egg) away.
