In contrast to the previous Reader, the Weigh-Less diet is not lacking in low-GI carbohydrates, so your craving for sweets may have a different origin. It is possible that you associate sweet foods with 'comfort' - a type of psychological crutch, and now that you are on a diet you occasionally seek this type of comfort by eating sweets. Discuss this problem with your Weigh-Less counsellor who will give you tips on how to avoid this type of behaviour (e.g. having an additional serving of a sweet-tasting fruit which is low in energy or using artificial sweeteners on foods like cereal, porridge, fruit salad, etc) to satisfy your craving for a sweet taste).
