Help and advice for cutting out soda and sweets

Recommended Posts

I started to cut soda out of my diet. Goes well for a couple days then I have one. Much better than it used to be, but my goal is to cut it out completely. The harder part for me is sweets. I can't seem to find a healthy snack to make my sweet tooth happy. Any suggestions?

Also, I work 2 jobs so there are days I work 17 hours a day or more and feel like I need a bit of an energy boost later in the day. Anyone have any thoughts on replacing energy drinks/soda with a preworkout?

Thanks

I have the same struggle wanting something sweet! I completely cut out everything except black coffee, tea and water as far as something to drink goes... I was a full on Diet Coke junkie lol

For snacks I have been eating Kind bars, pistachios and occasionally popcorn that I pop myself on the stove. Every once in a while a little piece of dark chocolate. I use myfitnesspal to track everything. It seriously helps. If you come up with some good ideas, please share!

When I am absolutely craving sweets but want to avoid them, I eat fruit (frozen unsweetened fruit and some kind of milk, put in a blender is delicious). Also, I discovered that really good snacks are things like sunflower seeds, almonds, and other nuts and seeds. You can put some in a snack bag and carry them in a pocket. Then you've got something to snack on so you won't get so hungry that you ravenously eat all the donuts and candy bars and sodas you can.
