    Ron – it sounds like you may need more protein at breakfast and less carbohydrate to calm down your sweet cravings (and enough at lunch) to turn off the desires. Having more protein and limiting your chocolate will definitely calm it down. I wonder if taking a week off of chocolate will help as well (use nuts as your snack with fruit). I took a week off chocolate a few months ago and it helped a lot (although hard for a day or two it gets better).

    Christina – yes, eating less sweet does definitely calm down all sweet cravings. Thanks for sharing.

    I can't exercise the discipline button when it comes to chocolate. I'll eat a whole bar and then if I have one of those bags of Dove, I'll eat more than the serving size every day. I don't have much of a problem with other sweets. I really have to watch it with chocolate though… I have to have it every day. The only way I can get away from it is if I don't bring any with me to work and no one has any at work. If there's any to be found I will seek it out. I used to be a big sugar fiend, but for some reason I fell out of favor(thankfully) with stuff like hard candies and stuff. I definitely felt lethargic and hungry when I ate all those sweets like I used to. What can be used as a substitute for chocolate???

    I gave up eating anything with sugar in it in eighteen months ago. I started to appreciate better the natural sweetness of foods. ie. If I eat porridge made with oatmeal for breakfast, it is naturally sweet. I'm not fanatical, I have the occasional sweet item, but I happily manage without. I lost weight as well.

    Try hand made chocolate almond bark or peanut butter cups, They are easy to prepare and can really be satisfying.
    Simply pre-roast the almonds (350 degrees ten minutes) then place 5-6 almonds in each paper lined mini muffin cups. Melt chocolate in a double boiler ( a pan set over simmering eater) .Pour 2 teaspoons of chocolate over the nuts. Let the "clusters" set in a refrigerator, for ten minutes.
    In place of peanut butter , use sunflower butter, instead. Line the paper cup with 1 teaspoon of melted chocolate . Let set in refrigerator, then top with peanut or sunflower butter, top with another layer of dark chocolate. Chill until served.
