The best way to curb your cravings for sugar – especially if you’re on a diet – is to eat more fruit.

Fruits are naturally sweet, and they help you to feel like you’ve gotten a treat and to feel full at the same time. You can also eat nuts, vegetables, and salads to help feel like you’ve filled up, but they might not help with your sugary craving.

If you just have to have something sweet, don’t eat by yourself.

People who eat alone tend to binge more. This is definitely true if they’re depressed and if they’re eating sweet and sugary things.

Having a piece of fruit will help to cut your sugary craving in half, and if you do have a dessert, you’ll eat less of it and feel better about sticking to your diet.
