    Having spent pretty much a lifetime indulging in treats its amazing how this woe means I am no longer even interested in them... but that doesn't mean I don't fancy something everynow & again...

    Do you have a low carb treat that helps keep you going??

    I love peanut butter only 1tsp tho as that has 1.2 carbs in it!!!
    85% dark chocolate 2 squares, 20g, (which is all I need) 3 carbs
    Applewood smoked cheddar, comes in a 20g wrapped portion & helps me not OD on cheese which I could be very prone to do!

    I have a sweet tooth sometimes - at others it's just not a problem - but when I feel in danger of giving in to a chocolate craving, and hardly ever! I have a little double cream, stir in some splenda and mix in a tiny amount of chopped mixed nuts, not even a teaspoonful. I stir it up and make myself wait a few minutes before eating so there's no temptation to make up some more! Somehow it works for me!

    I have sweet cravings every day! I still get that 2-3 pm slump. It's a battle with myself every afternoon!

    Yes Nic, know what you mean. Have some Atkins bars (more devil food?) in my drawer at work. Thankfully have been so busy i've not bothered with them. Mind you in the past i would've scoffed the lot by now.

    Yes EmmaMum a little bit of cream is oddly satisfying.

    What is it with us girls that we get the snackies? Jim do you/did you used to get the snackies? Be interested to know...

    Ok, I know I'm an Essex girl, but seriously - what are 'hairy lumps' Jim? Btw I once saw a Japanese lady on a plane eat a babybel with the red wax on!!
