I have a massive sweet tooth too.
I found that subbing out sweets for sweet soft fruit helped loads! the natural sweetness of the dried fruit fills my sugar craving and the fibre and vitamins in the fruit is better for me than the chocolate etc in sweets. x

I haven't tried either I'm afraid but I've tried other supplements and I'd advise against them.
Scientifically speaking its bad to take any supplement (inc vitamins etc) unless you actually need them but personally speaking the supplements I tried promised a World of difference and gave me none. x

hunger makes me fail in dieting
Scientifically, Your body cannot always determine the difference between hunger and thirst. Every time you feel hungry have a glass of water nothing big just a large tumbler or highball glass. Leave it 5 mins and if you are still hungry have something to keep you tied over.

I do this and I've lost weight. I choose to snack on dried fruit like cranberries and apricots because I have a sweet tooth. These give me the sweet taste I like without being bad for me.

I would never recommend fasting or anything like that as its not good for you and its really tough to keep a handle on cravings. I try to eat consistently throughout the day but small healthy things. I also make my meals smaller. This stops me getting the 'afternoon' lul you get after lunch and it encourages your metabolism to speed up. In conjunction with this i have reduced the portions of my mail meals as I don't eat as much. e.g:
Breakfast 7am - small bowl of cereal
Snacks 9am-11am - I have a handful of dried cranberries or dried apricots
Lunch 1pm - Small bowl (half can) of lentil soup or a cuppa soup (whole sachet)
Snacks 3pm-5pm - I have a handful of dried cranberries or dried apricots
Dinner - Smaller full meal whatever that happens to be that night.

at no point do I cut foods out or avoid food groups because you need all the good and bad stuff in your diet - including sugars and fats etc.
