It may help to plan for it and try to fit it into your calorie plan. And remember that dark chocolate (at least 70% cocoa) is actually beneficial for you. I have started eating that in moderation. Also sugar free jello and pudding is great and they are super low in calories. Just remember the key: moderation. And if you continue to deny yourself, then you will just binge at a later date. 4457 days ago
I have the same problem. It only happens after dinner, and if I give in a little bit then I end up going off the deep end.
For me, it helps to have a fiber drink instead. Its just sweet enough, and I feel really full after so I don't want to eat any more. I also brush my teeth soon afterwards, then my mouth really knows I'm done! 4459 days ago
I have the same problem, especially after dinner. I got some vanilla almond tea (or any sweet flavor will do) and I sip that after dinner... it takes care of my sugar cravings and its not very many calories :) 4459 days ago
They say it takes 21 days to change a habit and it looks like it's a habit that you have. I don't see a problem with having a little treat after a meal just as long as it's a little sweet treat that's planned into your calories for the day. Another thing that might help is brushing your teeth after you eat each meal, you can't eat after doing that and your teeth will be minty clean so you won't want to eat. 4459 days ago
Don't know if this will work for you but for most part it works for me: try adding a crystal light packet with your water. Hopefully this will take care of your sweets and it is only 5 calories per serv which is 1/2 packet. Depending on the flavor and how sweet you need your sweet you may not need the whole packet. You can also try some fruit.
