I'm addicted to chocolate HELP!!

So when I say I'm addicted to chocolate, I'm not kidding! I've been trying to get into shape for my wedding but I can't seem to cut out sweets. I did it once before a couple years ago but this time it's so hard!! I crave chocolate all the time. I don't know as like an upper or what, but I don't know how to fight these cravings anymore.

Anyone with sweet fighting advice PLEASE HELP!!

    Well I'm addicted to pasta! What a dilemma we are in, huh... I agree with the above posters. At least try to eat the "healthier" versions like dark chocolate. I am modifying my pasta intake as well as what kinds. Only whole grain from now on. If I can do it (and it's darn near impossible) YOU CAN DO IT!!

    I love Skinny Cow!  Their drumsticks are a great alternative to the regular ones, and they taste even better!

    There are a few others that my FMIL gets, I know Skinny Cow is a favorite at her place, but I'm not quite sure of the other brands.

    Well, my suggestion would be to pick up a bag of individually wrapped dark chocolate squares.

    When you're super craving chocolate, grab ONE square and enjoy it slowly.  Dark chocolate has more "chocolate" flavour/morsel, so it's better at saiting the craving, and it has less calories than milk chocolate.  Then, walk away and don't have any more.  (aka, grow some balls and just say no)

    I am also a chocoholic! Don't try to deny yourself completly or you will binge! When I was calorie counting I embraced the fact that each day I was going to eat 75-120 calories of chocolate. I have been buying the dark chocolate bars with 65-70+ cocoa in them. This really cut my cravings (from a whole bag of M&M to 3-4 squares). Also a plus is that it is good for you :) (in moderation of course)

    I also tried the pudding 100 calorie cups that are a good craving reducer and
    I have also added berries to my diet which are high in sugar and they seem to reduce my sweet tooth.

    Good luck!!

    Try Artic Ice Ice cream - chocolate is the best - the entire pint is 128 calories - and it's all natural (no artificial sweetners) -  it's at Whole Foods.  Anyway, it helps with the ocassional craving and even if you finish off the pint, I never feel that guilty.

    I try to buy dark chocolate and then keep it in the highest cupboard to prevent myself from just binging on it when I have a craving. (Have to work to get a piece since I am 5' 3" and to reach my top cupboard I need to have a stool or chair to stand on.) :)

    You should really check out Chocolate Shakeology. It's a meal replacement shake, but it can be used as a snack too. It tastes just like a chocolate shake, not disgusting at all! Plus it's SUPER healthy, it has like 70 different ingredients in it. You can find more information on it here - www.shakeology.com/cogswell

    Only downside is that, it is kind of expensive, but it's probably going to be the healthiest chcolate you will find. Plus, it's shown to help people lose weight. I drink it everyday for breakfast since I usually don't have time for breakfast in the morning.
