I am trying to loose some weight and it has been going pretty well so far.  I have fallen off the wagon but I have gotten back on.  My problem is SWEETS.  I have the biggest tooth for chocolates.  I eat well during the daytime, snack on the right stuff but at nights that chocolate crave takes over,any suggestions on how to deal with it.  When I donot buy hubby buys as he has a big sweet tooth as well.  Help.

    • Eat your sweets earlier in the day - it’s easier to burn the extra calories during the day.  Take up knitting or some handi-craft and work on it in the evenings...it’ll keep your hands busy & you wouldn’t be to tempted to snack. I also serve dessert every night with dinner - I keep it light, and serve each dessert in single portion servings. Hope this helps :)

    • I may be an odd one answering this question since chocolate is my work but, I find that eating a healthy amount of fruit on a daily basis cuts down the craving for other sweets. If there’s a particular type of fruit you like best, focus on that one initially so you don’t feel deprived from lack of treats. If chocolate is really calling to you, try cutting your fruit into a bowl and putting some finely chopped dark chocolate on top. You’ll not consume much chocolate but get plenty of nutrition from the fruit.

      Best of luck to you!

      On a side note, my partner in my kitchen is a specialty baker. I go crazy in there when she’s baking because I love cake. That’s my weakness.

    • I’ve been working on loosing weight as well, but I don’t even try to cut out chocolate. I just eat smaller portions of it.  

      I agree with what Cynthia said though.  If you get enough of your fruits and veggies, cravings for other stuff are quite a bit less.

    • I agree with Cynthia as well. When I have enough fruit in my diet, I don’t crave it. When I have a craving for chocolate that I can’t get rid of, I get a CocoVia chocolate bar. It is only 100 calories and has a high percentage of cocoa so it immediately takes care of my craving. Trying to eliminate sugar from your diet will help as well. The first three days are the hardest, then you won’t crave it as much. Good luck.

    • One more thing. If you must have sweets, eats as small of a portion as you can and make sure that you ballance it out with a protein such as nuts. Hope this helps!
