I like Iced coffee with a packet of Sweetleaf Stevia and 1 T of heavy cream. This satisfies that sweet craving for me. Or instead of stevia (or splenda) I might use Sugar Free Vanilla syrup. Just remember to count it as 1 of your sugar substitute carbs.

I get my sweet tooth satisfied and my veggie carbs in by eating rhubarb cooked down and a packet of stevia (you can use splenda) to sweeten it. I also use canned pumpkin and some pumpkin pie spice to make a "dessert" I mix it with cream cheese and top with whipped cream if I have the carbs and calories to indulge myself!

You can also have Atkins bars and shake no more than 2 daily. They are delicious and available at Walmart Walgreens CVS etc.

Induction is hard for this!!! I don't think you can have rhubarb or pumpkin on Induction, but I could be wrong.

I usually buy diet pop...diet root beer or something like that. I don't have more than one a day, but it really helps me. I also will eat sugar free jello with whipped cream on it - that's one of my favs. I buy the whipping cream for my coffee. But if i can manage to skip it in the morning, I will whip a little up with some stevia (or sometimes I skip the "whipping" part and just eat it in its creamy, liquid, natural form) and eat that or put it on my jello. In extreme cravings I have bought the diet jello pudding and mixed it with half and half instead of milk. That is TOO GOOD. And, I must add, not completely legal on Induction either! Sugar free popsicles also do the trick for me.

Good luck!

You certainly can have rhubarb and pumpkin on induction and even better they count toward your veggie carbs Smile Once you are on OWL you can have berries and then you can upgrade to strawberry-rhubarb, mmmmmmmmm!!!!!!!!!!!

I would really encourage you to try to avoid fake foods as much as possible and work at eating real whole foods. You need to do two things. You need to break the cravings and merely substituting for your sweet tooth doesn't break its power over your life. The second thing is to develop new tastes for new foods that will build your health and help you stay at your goal weight for a lifetime.

I agree with using whole foods. But I also know myself...sometimes I just need something really good....and although I love the pumpkin, it doesn't always do it for me. Instead of falling off that wagon, I use the jello or something like that. The site has some great ideas!!!

I'm sorry..but it's not allowed on induction (only 20 net carbs a day). Fruit is not allowed until you get to phase 2 (some lower carb fruit selections). Sugar free jelly will just keep your sugar addiction's alive and well (as well as being very high in carbs) and could set you up for a binge. It's best to get your cravings under control and detox since you are in induction and have only just started Atkins and can't move to phase 2 yet. I know how hard it is at first getting those cravings under control, but if you really want to help yourself, you'll decide not to have the sf jelly just yet.

OHHHH! I'm sorry Becca! You were talking about sf JELLO! I thought you were talking about sf jelly, here in the US that would be the fruit jelly or preserves type! YES!!! You can have some of it..but don't overdo it!Even though it is sf, it MAY still keep your cravings alive (everyone's different, what may keep your cravings alive , may not be the same for someone else..you'll just have to find out). I know at first, it kept mine alive and I had to decide on how bad I wanted to lose weight or just keep struggling with it or get in control of it for that matter. OH YES..have some with some nice whipped topping if you like. I buy whipping cream and make my own..it taste's sooo much better. I put a little vanilla flavoring and a little splenda in it and whip it up..yum! Just try it and see how it affects you. And, be careful about eating too much of any sf foods..they can cause you to have a very upset tummy...LOL!

Thank you Kathy for clarifying that Jello mixup, I hated to see a grown Rebecca cry! LOL
Rebecca, don't forget to count the sf Jelly(Jello) as one of your sweetners for the day. I think were only aloud 3? Correct me Kathy if I'm wrong.
