Dear Mama E
I think you need to wean yourself of the sweet-eating habit. If you are on a low-fat, high-fibre diet it should contain sufficient carbohydrates so that you don't develop cravings for carbs. Try eating one sweet less every 2-3 days until you are down to one. Marshmallows and jelly babies contain marginally fewer kJ than boiled sweets.
Keep up the good work with the diet and the exercise.
