How can I try to lose weight when I keep having candy cravings?

I am trying to lose weight and I don’t have the time to work out like I want to and I keep have these urges and cravings for sweets and candy and I know that this is the worst thing for me. Oh and also I would like to lose 25lbs by June!!! LOL

    Working out will be the best thing to lose the weight, though make sure you’re doing it in a safe, non-extreme way. Find a low-impact cardio exercise, like an elliptical or a swimming pool to do laps, and do a few routines per week.

    Stay away from diet pills/additives. They are, at worst, very dangerous and, at best, have awful side effects. Phen-phen, in several diet remedies, can affect your cardiac muscle and caused the death of a girl I knew. I forget the name of the one approved by the FDA, but it prevents fat from being absorbed in the body–so the fat LEAKS out of the anus. I’m not joking or exaggerating.

    Find good-tasting replacement snacks, like sweet fruits, yogurts, the healthier granola bars, etc. Look for recipes of tasty, healthy snacks online.

    As for the candy cravings, buy a package of the "fun size" candy bars that are given out at Halloween. Ration a set amount per day, like one or two, and stick to it. This way you’ll still get to eat the candy but lessen the amount. There’s no need to deprive yourself, just change the pattern you have now.

    Good luck. When in doubt, ask a doctor or nutritionist for more tips.

    make sure you keep sweets out of your house. at least if you have that urge you wont have anything unhealthy to snack on.

  • Brittany H says:

    dont buy any or get rid of it. you have to have self control. candy is practically pure sugar it will turn right into fat and you dont want thattt

  • lexxx says:

    yogurt, citrus-y fruits, and peanut butter help cure candy cravings. Also, water can sort of help too, it keeps you wayy full and wont make you feel like you need any chocolate or sweets.

    hope that helps:)

  • jacque m says:

    there are some tablets that can help to control sugar cravings.exercise n take your mind off the food is the best way.i know its hard,but u will get there

  • Angie says:

    Buy berries to snack on, or cut up a fruit salad of your favorite fruits and pull that out anytime you get a craving. Be strong, if you really want to lose weight than do it.

  • C J says:

    Try eating fruits when you are craving sweets. Also don’t drink diet drinks, the artificial sweeteners in them will make you crave sugar.
    Hope this helps!

    You are going to have to change your diet if you want to loose some pounds. Try taking 2 whole bananas, chop them up into 1" size pieces, then throw them into a blender and add about half a cup of (crushed) ice and a cup of water, then blend it and pour it into a large cup. This is not going to make you loose much weight, but it is a healthy alternative to sweets, and is vary satisfying

  • Curious says:

    Sweety, suck on some hard candy… Last longer than regular gummies, cookies, or chocolate.. and should satisfy your candy cravings…

    And I do mean suck not chew….. =)

    How balanced is your diet? Do you eat fruits, vegetables, whole grains, dairy and protein? If I’m eating "on the run" and it’s mostly carbs and protein (burgers, chicken nuggets, sodas, sandwiches) I tend to have more cravings. When I’m getting a well-balanced diet with lots of salads, vegetables and fruits and lean protein, I’m less tempted by sweets. It also helps to take a basic multivitamin to fill in nutrient gaps when I’m rushed and it’s harder to eat right.
    This is just a theory and I have no medical or nutrition training other than reading mainstream health articles, but I think craving sugar can be linked to anemia in women. If you think you could be anemic, you should see your doctor for a blood test.
    Re: losing 25 pounds by June: remember you have about seven weeks and counting. That would require you to lose around 3.5 pounds a week. That’s not impossible, but most experts would consider it too much too soon. And it would require a big commitment to taking the time to eat right and to exercise frequently. Can you make that time?

  • MonMac says:

    Don’t skip breakfast. Eating a healthy breakfast can help you eat in moderation at lunch and dinner. A high-fiber, low-fat breakfast may make a major contribution to a total reduced food intake for the day.

    Losing weight is simply a matter of limiting calories consumed and burning off more calories with exercise and daily activities.

    Also, eating "Negative Calorie Foods", also called fat-burners, is great way to lose weight. You can eat more and still lose weight.

    Check out http://loseweightsite.net It has an article on "Negative Calorie Foods"

    I have started this Diet (lifestyle change) in the middle of November at 140lbs, and now at 117lbs

    A DIET IS WHAT YOU EAT….there for we are all on a diet….

    You got the change the way you think and feel about food

    TRY THIS, and stick to it.

    The first 3-4 weeks are the hardest until your body adjusts to the change.
    Results will be in about the same time

    Fruits and Veggies

    Eat more plants and keep away from stuff that was made in plants.

    Don’t eat anything that comes in a can, box or package….
    If man made it, don’t eat it

    NO white BREAD or SUGAR

    NO PIZZA, I am in the pizza business, and it is not good for you, very high in FAT and Calories


    Stay away from FAST FOOD


    Walk your dog, or walk a friends dog

    Don’t think of it as a diet, but think of it as a lifestyle change

    I have lost 28.5 pounds in 3 months, drink lots of water. I usually eat a meal of what ever I want once a week….controlled portion….this really works………

    Write down every thing you eat

    take a multivitamin at night

    Weight loss is an overall process and there are no magic answers. Pay no attention to weight loss supplements and pills and all the latest fads. You need to think about many factors but most of them are related to issues we’ve known about for a very long time. There are many sensible things you can do that will make a tremendous difference over the long term if you need to lose weight. It can be done in a healthy way. This is what has worked for me.

    Keeping a food journal really does help. It will give you a much better sense of how much you are eating, and when, and why.

    Make a few additional small changes – walk everywhere, always use stairs instead of elevators, walk on escalators, get up and move around at least once an hour if your work or your life in general is sedentary, walk every day, use a pedometer. Walking 10,000 steps a day is a really good idea. Build up to a long brisk walk everyday, or most days. Be more active and watch less TV and spend less time on the computer. Buy one piece of exercise equipment to have at home and be strict with yourself about using it. Sometimes you can find mini-steppers or exercise bikes at second hand stores and thrift stores for just a few dollars.

    Start a weight lifting routine. Join a gym. Possibly you can find one that has someone who specializes in weight lifting programs for beginners. Weight lifting will increase your metabolism as well as improve posture and appearance overall. Even if you can’t get to the gym you can work out at home using things around the house. Invest in a good weight training book. The Dummies series actually has a good one.

    In terms of diet, cut out or reduce things like junk food, pop, fat, fast food. Eat more fruits, vegetables, whole grains, lean meat, fish. Particularly if you choose a vegetarian lifestyle include natural peanut butter, hummus, dried fruit and nuts. Pay close attention to getting the nutrients your body needs to be healthy.

    Make your portion sizes smaller. Use a smaller plate – in our society we have become accustomed to thinking that we need a large plate of food at every meal, and we don’t. About quarter of your plate of food should be protein and at least half of it should be veggies.

    Learn to count calories. At your current weight and activity level, you may possibly need about 2000 calories or more to maintain your current weight. So you will lose weight at a reasonable and healthy rate if you cut back to about 1600 or 1700 calories a day.

    Eat small amounts frequently, rather than three large meals. Never skip breakfast. Include some protein in your breakfast. It will help get you through the day.

    Drink plenty of water, at least 8 big glasses of water a day, and more if it is very hot, if you sweat a lot, or if you are exercising intensely, and eliminate fruit juices. Fruit juices have too many calories, so get your vitamins from fresh fruit, not the juice. You will begin to see changes in your body.

    Vary your routines. Don’t eat the same number of calories every day (vary your calories from 1400 a day to 1900 or 2000 some days), eat a variety of foods, and do different kinds and amounts of exercise. You will lose weight much more efficiently if you mix things up from time to time so that your body doesn’t adjust to any one routine.

    An area that many people overlook is getting enough sleep. You are much more likely to overeat or to binge eat if you are tired and not well rested, so get enough sleep.

    Check out websites about nutrition, exercise, weight training, etc. Here are a few helpful links.
