    I made the oatbran muffins off a recipe i found on here and put a bit more sweetener & ginger in them ...they should satisfy a sweet tooth x o and I agree with the sf jelly and the sugar free gum especially (that's what's keeping me going!!)

    Your cravings will soon pass though just make sure your eating enough protein x

    You've done brilliantly weight loss wise, but four months without attempting any Dukan dessert recipes? Shame on you!

    Check out our recipe section, and get into that kitchen :D

    Most of the shop yoghurts are fruit based and even if they don't have added sugar they contain fructose. I just buy plain low fat now and add stuff. I did try an activia fruit once - desperate for something half safe when out for lunch- and actually I found it way too sweet for me now. Think my taste has changed on this diet.

    My sweet tooth is usually satisfied with a low fat Greek yoghurt or a 0% fat frais plus sweetener (I've use splenda or xylitol) and some food flavouring - strawberry, vanilla. And I love the Dukan caramel flavouring, even if it is a bit expensive!
    I have also tried a hot cocoa drink, made with a low fat cacao, skimmed milk and sweetener: not every day as the chocolate is a tolerated item only I think. But it makes a nice treat at the end of the week.

    Meringue is definitely a fix for sugar cravings, though I usually find a huge bowl of SF jelly and yoghurt works well. Oh, and sweetened stewed rhubarb.
