You can also eat a dill pickle. They have lots of sodium, but you burn more calories chewing and digesting than are actually in the pickle.
I've heard it is because the sweet and sour taste centers on your tongue are right next to each other. My grandma's doctor told her that when she was diagnosed with diabetes.

What are you craving? A pickle or 10 almonds is a good idea if you want something crunchy and salty, a square of dark chocolate is good if you want something sweet. I'm trying to cut back on the junk I eat, so I don't keep it in my house and I don't bring any to work with me. I treat myself to a yummy Starbucks treat on Fridays - a tall sugar free vanilla, non fat caramel macchiato - lower in calories, has protein and coffee is an appetite suppressant so I don't feel like eating after I've had one!

Good luck! You can do it! And remember...nothing tastes as good as being thin feels

also finding a substitute. Like to break my chocolate bar addiction i started eating a bannana with sugar free hersheys squirted on it. so i get my chocolate fix, but I'm not so hooked on that now.
also, don't have the bad stuff in the house. have plenty of healthy options around too so you don't feel deprived.
