    Attn chocoholics and sweet freaks

    Ok one issue that is holding my weight loss gaols from happening is my personal addiction to chocolate and sweets in general. Every night about an hour after dinner I find myself craving something sweet and had been fulfilling this desire with icecream. Obviously this is hurting my efforts to loose weight. So I have seen these comercials for Nabisco Thin Crisps which they make Oreo, and Chips Ahoy flavors as well as Cheese Nips and a think a couple of others. A bag is 100 cal with 20 of those from fat and none from Sat, Trans, or Polyunsaturated fats. So far I have found that 1 bag of these actually does seem to fulfill my desire. Hope it continues as I am sure these 100 cal are much better than the huge number I was getting from a big bowl of chocolate PB swirl.

    So check them out if you are like me...that was the point.

    Why did you hate them?

    Hmm...I hate chocolate but love sugary candy.

    Fruit usually satisfies my cravings. If you like ice cream maybe you can try yogurt?

    I know it's completely useless to try to give up everything!

    Maybe because they were too "dry."

    Hmm. I thought it was just a marketing gimmick, with the portions pre-wrapped. So it actually is lower in fat AND sugar, huh?

    I think that kind of stuff is good as you transition to a more healthy diet. It's hard to go cold turkey. I started drinking diet soda, and after about 6 months I stopped having any desire for either the real stuff or the diet stuff.

    How about some green tea with a bit of Stevia? That cures it for me...

    Stay out of Starbucks. They've got this stuff called Chantico. It's like drinking chocolate fondue.

    I think those oreo crisps are pretty good. I also like sprinking/eating cacao nibs with stuff.

    I know green tea is good for you, but the taste just doesn't do it for me - it reminds me of chicken soup. Oh well.

    Ha, where I used to live people drank green tea all the time. I always thought it was like drinking a tea made from leaves that fell off the tree. It is supposed to be quite good for you though. Lots of anti-oxidants or something like that.

    I think my cravings for chocolate is really a craving for the caffeine in chocolate. My cravings for candy is my craving for carbs. I think my mind plays tricks on me, I try to stay busy in the evening. Caffeine free diet pop seems to help a little, but I think it just bloats my stomach until I don't feel like eating anything.

    Good luck,

    I'd like to throw in that I'm an a-hole because I'm 5' 10" 148 lbs (skinny I know), and I eat a tub of ice cream a week plus other crap. I don't gain any weight, in fact I lost 20 lbs last year because I did alot of endurance training.

    I personally believe you can eat moderate junk-food if you exercise enough. But that's easy for me to say, as I have a ridiculous metabolism.

    That's a fallacy. You don't have to be fat to have atherosclerotic plaques in your arteries. Take it easy on the fatty foods.

    Not wanting calories or a sugar rush, I used to drink a lot of diet sodas until someone told me how they make nutrasweet and splenda.

    Try the "Skinny Cow" ice cream brands. They use skim milk and a ton less sugar, but it still tastes creamy and smooth. It hasn't lost any taste at all. Put it next to Edy's Grand ice cream, close your eyes and taste both, and you'll be hard pressed to tell the difference between the two.

    The Edy's Light is also good, but has some more calories than Skinny Cow. Actually, the Edy's Light is the best light ice cream I've had. It tastes like the full fat version

    you can go to the extreme with edy's. They make a no fat, no sugar added ice cream that I find quite tasty. Chocolate vanilla swirl is the way to go.

    Just stop with the ice cream; don't buy it and keep it in your freezer. Ice cream is incredibly high in fat, saturated fat, and it's the worst thing for you. Once in a while, fine.

    There are great substitutes for ice cream; I tried SO GOOD, a frozen soya dessert, and it's delicious! ANd much lower in fat. ALso chapmans makes low fat,or sugar free ice cream. I see plenty of low fat frozen desserts available, and many of them are very good.
    You can catch more flies with honey than with vinegar. That's great...if you want to attract vermin.

    The Skinny Cow is low in fat... that's the beauty of it! It's like 2 grams of total fat (1 gram of it is saturated fat) per ice cream sandwich, and their ice cream cups have even less fat: .5 g of fat and 0 saturated fats. It is absolutely the creamiest low fat ice cream I've ever tasted. Mmmmmmmmmmmmmmmmmmmmm

    Cut it with the ice cream already! I'm doing the LA Diet and that is prohibited in this stage. Just reading about it makes me wanna.....eat some! So cut it out already.

    Pierre's make a brand called Slender. The chocolate flavor is oh so good! They make'm with Splenda and it's very low in fat.

    My vote is still for the green tea if you are like me and need to loose weight.

    Also, fat free hot cocoa may do the trick.

    Enjoying your ice cream moment?

    I haven't read all the posts, but maybe someone can tell me why I'm not losing weight. I've been riding 7 days a week for a few months now. Here's my riding schedule:

    Monday/Wednesday/Sunday ride to Baskin Robbins
    Tuesday ride to Pizza Palace (all you can eat!)
    Thursday ride to Pasta King
    Friday night ride to happy hour for $2 beers
    Saturday ride to IHOP for stuffed French toast brekkie with bacon/sausage.etc.

    7 days a week and I think I've gained weight!

    Well, you have to ride more than 10 minutes for 7 days a week!
