Default withdrawals for sweets

I dont know if this exists or If im super pathetic, but I've been eating healthy without any cheats at all up until about 2 weeks ago where I literally ate disgusting every day (chips or chocolate once a day) cos of exams and stress. I'm done exams now and have cut that crap out 100% again and am back on track with the gym. It's day one and I'm in a TERRIBLE mood, craving sugar like no other, and am generally just irritable and super angry at the world. I want it now. and Bad.

What to do?

Delicious fruit with it's natural sugar, but also made mostly of water with fiber and vitamins.

Watermelons, oranges, strawberries, bananas, apples, blackberries, blueberries, cantaloupe - with just a spoonful of peanut butter or cinnamon or dark chocolate if you really want, but it's not necessary.

You're not pathetic. Sugar is habit forming in the same way cigarettes are. I had to cut sugar (other than fruits) out of my diet completely, but it's up to you to determine to what extent you can avoid it.

I am the same way! Major Carb addict! Lately I have been doing this:
1 apple sliced and sprinkled with a small amount on cinnamon sugar
served with 1a tablespoon almond butter with a small amount of cocoa powder and cinnamon mixed in it.. very complex flavor but a healthy snack all for around 150-200 calories.
Celebrate every small victory!

One for every 5 pounds lost:

wow! i dont think I could ever cut out sweets
But I know what you mean, I get into this crazy cycle that I'll eat something salty and then crave something sweet or vice versa. I have a huge sweet tooth so this was obviously terrible for my weight.

What I do now is i bought a bag of little Dove/Hersheys 1 inch individually wrapped chocolates and pop one or two of those when i get a craving and it works! Its about 40-50 calories for one chocolate and they are so rich and creamy that that squashes the craving better than eating a whole candy bar or something.
