I'm not much of a sweet tooth, but occasionally I'll get a really bad craving for it. I keep a few things in the house that usually help although not always. I have a bag of peppermint candies, they have 10 calories each and if I let them slowly melt in my mouth it takes a while to eat one. I also have a bag of individually wrapped Dove chocolates, that can help too, again letting it slowly melt. I also try and drink a lot of water with the sugar fix, hoping to fill myself up. The other thing I do is to make sure I start my day with a big pile of protein. It keeps me feeling full longer and doesn't set me up to have a sugar-low later in the day. I don't know about you, but if I consume a pile of carbs then sooner or later I will get a blood sugar crash and an almost uncontrollable crave for sugar sugar sugar.
