    I love sweet treats! Some things I use to combat my sweet tooth:
    1.) Angel food cake-You can add fruit and whipped topping.
    2.)Sugar free pudding-you can mix with plain Greek yogurt. Or just make it with almond milk. I love this one because you can enjoy it warm. I love warm treats
    3.) Protein shake- I usually make a protein shake with ice and it's a sweet!
    4.)flavored Greek yogurt-dannon triple zero with fruit.
    5.)Jello
    6.)peanut butter cookies from scratch- use natural peanut butter, egg, and a zero calorie sweetener. It's delicious!

    I hope this helps!

    The problem with sugary foods is that they spike your blood glucose. Your body responds with insulin and over reacts (your body was designed to deal with fruit, not Mars bars) resulting in blood glucose that is too low a few hours later. This causes renewed sugar cravings. If you give in to the cravings your blood sugar yoyo's all day with sugar cravings during the dips.

    If you must eat sugary food, hold off until evening.

    I quit my gumdrop addiction by switching to fruit instead. Now, candy is way too sweet for me.

    What about sugar free desserts? There are so many out there with various degree of carbs content. You don't have to give up desserts when you give up sugar.
