Sweet Cravings

I find it impossible to stop eating a sweet after just a bite or two. Any tips?

Um, pour pepper over the rest and then step on it? Seriously though, willpower is about timing. It's best to eat treats when you're full-say, at the end of a meal-so you'll be less tempted to binge. "Using sweets like chocolate to alleviate hunger can actually create a craving for that food," says Barbara Rolls, PhD, a nutrition professor at Pennsylvania State University and coauthor of The Volumetrics Weight-Control Plan (Harper Torch, 2003). Your brain gets the message that sweets hit the spot and remembers it the next time you're hungry.
