I love sweets. This is my greatest weakness. I have been trying to cut back my sweets intake since 2 weeks ago. But I crave, I can even smell and dream of donuts, cakes, chocolates. And everyday my cravings get stronger and stronger that makes it so impossible to resist. Please help.

Fear the possibility of getting fat. FEAR is a powerful tool. If you wrestle fear to push you instead of standing infront of you it's very powerful.

I am the same way. I bought cookies for my husband thinking that I wouldn't eat them. However, every time I go in the kitchen I sneak one or two!! Smh as long as its not in the house I'm good!!! I'm not bring anymore junk in here. Chocolate is my enemy!!

Whenever you eat sweets

Try doing a workout routine
To burn off the amount of calories
Youve just consume

So like a slice of cake could be
10 pushups or 15 situps

Dark chocolates are healthier
Try substituting a fruit for your candy

To get off sweets is extremely difficult. Studies show sugar is addictive.  A little leads to craving more & more.

I have had success in weaning myself off sugar binges by treating myself to a variety of fresh organic fruits. When I get a craving, I eat some fruit instead. That's it. The goal is to eventually eat less fruit, too, but at first I buy a lot of expensive delicious fruit & let myself eat as much as i want. Later it gets easier.

Nowadays I rarely indulge in any sugar in anything because when I do I crave more too strongly.

Getting off sweets is a very slow process. Like you I have a sweet tooth. My issues always came up with trying to quit drinking soda. To make a long story short take a look at what your daily intake is and then evaluate what a reasonable daily cutback would be. For those times where you start craving sweets, try having a sweetish type fruit like apple slices or peanut butter on celery. Another tip that I have heard is to increase your fiber intake. I haven't tried that yet though but it is on my list of changes coming 2016!

Good luck!
