Shannon I wish I had some miracle cure for you... I do know where you are coming from though as I have a sweet tooth like a five year old child. I have found though that if my craving for a sweet isn't fulfilled by fruit (which I love) it is generally not a food craving at all. As a child sweets were nurturing comfort foods, and I have noticed a very strong connection between my emotional state and my desire for sweets. Anyway, this may not be the case for you but I have been working on really identifying how I feel when I have such cravings and then working towards some other outlet besides eating. And I need to emphasize "working" as I do not have this all perfected. So good luck and I hope this helps.
