Sweets and Carbs..
What do you all do to get over sugar or carb cravings? Any advice and recipes would be appreciated. Some days I struggle more than others and I'm hoping that maybe some "sweets" might help a bit.

The sugar and carb craving should slack off after a while. I can't believe I rarely crave them any more! And when I do, I think now its just in my mind rather than a physical craving. In those cases, I eat something with artificial sweetener. At first I hated it, but I adjusted to it eventually.

Have you tried Eas Advantedge Carb Control Shakes? I drink them every day and they seem like a dessert to me. I also eat sugar free jello and use Torani Sugar Free Syrup to flavor things like plain greek yogurt or cottage cheese. You'll find your own path eventually, hang in there!

If I crave sugar, I eat sf jello or make a chocolate protein shake and add a little Walden Farms chocolate syrup. If I'm craving a carb, I eat a serving of pork rinds -- my brain thinks that's a carb; looks like a carb, crunches like a carb, tastes like a carb.....I rarely crave sugar anymore, crave the carbs once in awhile. (I don't eat pork rinds 48 hours before weigh-in, though, because of the sodium content.)

there is a great almond cookie recipe for medi, very simple ingredients.. easy to make. I also like sf jello, emerald dark chocolate or cinnamon almonds, breyers carb smart ice cream (vanilla goes nice with some diet a&w).... rarely (in desperate times) an adkins bar/treat but those tend to bug my stomach.
