    When I'm craving chocolate or something sweet towards the end of the evening, I will eat a Fiber One Brownie. They are only 90 calories & come in many yummy flavors including Chocolate Peanut Butter, Chocolate Fudge, Chocolate Chip Cooke & my new favorite, Lemon Bars! I don't know if it's because of they have 5 grams of fiber for each bar, but this tends to hit the spot & satisfy whatever craving I'm having. Those are the only flavors that I have tried, I don't know about the others, but the ones listed above are awesome! Hopefully this helps! :smile:

    I don't specifically have a sweet tooth, but I do like to have a snack around 9pm. My snacks of choice are popcorn, frozen grapes or frozen yogurt. I always have plenty of calories banked for my 9pm cravings! :-)
  • I like a nice dessert tea if I'm feeling snacky in the late evenings.

    I like David's tea, my favorite kind is chocolate chip dough for those late night sweet cravings.

    For my late night sweet tooth, I've been trying to have some greek yogurt (which I love!) or half of Kellogs Protein Shakes. I like something with a bit more substance to curb my sweet tooth.

    So one of my biggest issues is my late night sweet tooth, where I want icecream, chocolate, candy, etc... So my question is what do you all do to help curve this craving? I try to drink lots of water but sometimes that just doesn't do it. HELP PLEASE!!! Thanks!

    I leave myself 200 extra calories for dinner, so I can have something sweet... and I go to bed earlier, and just try to think about what I'll have for breakfast the next day instead.

    My favorite prior to lo carb was a banana sliced with a little chocolate syrup and some whipped topping. Post Lo Carb, it is a cup of flavored tea with splenda a little cream or whatever works for you with the tea.

    Try 1 cup of fresh blueberries with 3 tbsp of cottage cheese. That's my late night go-to. Sweet enough to appease the sweet tooth, filling thanks to the protein in the cottage cheese, and really, really tasty :happy:

    A chopped up banana with some cranberries and slivered almonds.
    I just smoosh it altogether! Sometimes I freeze the banana which makes 10 times better.
    Totally kills the cravings - I have given up dairy so needed something to replace the chocolate and this works a treat!
  • I like to have something sweet before I go to bed also. I just plan for it during the day and cut back on the number of calories I consume during the day. I sometimes skip my lunch time small frozen yogurt so I can have it before I go to bed. I say go ahead and have the sweets, just plan for it or exercise enough to zero out the calories.

    Plain yogurt with honey and berries... and a big glass of water... works every time.

    I definitely understand this!! Assuming you've completed your calories for the day, the only thing that really worked for me was to just say no, and go to bed. After about 2 weeks I was able to move beyond that craving/urge to eat something sweet right before bed. Its been about 3 months of me losing weight and I really don't crave anymore.

    I know that sounds hard, but honestly its the only thing that worked for me!!

    If I did fruits and things, it just continued the cravings. I basically had to stop and jsut get used to it and they did go away. Worth a try if you think you can :)
