Something I do for my sweet cravings is skim milk with sugar free chocolate syrup. At least that way I feel like I'm getting some nutrition out of my chocolate. I've also discovered the Atkins Marshmallow Mudslide Bars...I love them! And they have quite a bit of protein in them.
If anyone knows anything about how to keep the water retention away, PLEASE let me know!! Last month I gained 4 pounds overnight!! I thought I was going to lose my mind! I've increased my water intake from 64oz to 100oz, hoping that will help.
