hey all. on p2 week 2, and i am due for my time of the month which tends to equal carb and chocolate cravings and post a salad at lunch i am dying for some sweets!!! i usually dont have that issue during the day and enjoy a sweet snack for dessert in the evening.

any ideas to stay op and kick my craving mid day?

ps- walking past the cupcake truck doesnt help either!!! :devil:

I like an iced mocha coffee (it gets my chocolate thing under control)...

or if you are out..and have a dire sweet emergency ..
McDonald's has a sugar free vanilla iced coffee that's not too shabby. (the only thing I EVER buy at the horrible McDonalds!)

what I like to do it mix a bit of cocoa powder with some natural peanut butter. I usually eat it with an apple....or with my finger straight out of the bowl. It keeps my cravings in check and is pretty healthy.

I can't wait until I can have an apple with my peanut butter, although I'm very content with just the peanut butter. :)

For phase one I've been putting a little palm sugar and cocoa powder in my fat free greek yogurt. Unfortunately, the yogurt has been bothering my lactose intolerance. Ugh! So I had to lay off a little.

Sugar free chocolate pudding... or really any type of sugar free pudding is delightful. :)

I love 1 oz of dark chocolate with a portion of my almond or peanut butter smeared on it. Yum! :drool:

SF Baskin Robins hard candy, mind choc chip and cookies and cream seems to work for me now. But have to watch there is a few carbs.

Remember the dark chocolate is only an occasional treat on Phase II.
