  • Sweet treat substitutes: Dry cereals instead of chips, pureed cantaloupe or honeydew melon with 1 cup sugar water frozen or Yogurt instead of icecream, bran muffins with low fat/sugar fruit jam instead of cake, for candy cravings: stick to individual/minature sized bought singly from a convient store not by the bag. Hope this helps
