I did answer your question on 5 July 2005 and suggested low-energy snacks include celery sticks, carrots, baby tomatoes, and plain, unbuttered popcorn and exercise to counteract this tendency to gain weight after stopping smoking, which does often occur. There is alas no miracle food which is sweet but does not contain calories, except the sugar-free gums. Diabetic chocolate may contain no sucrose, but it has a relatively high energy content because it contains quite a lot of fat. You will have to force yourself to stop snacking on sweets and cornflakes and raisins until this urge passes, which it will do given time.
Hang in there
