    Any one else having a tough time staying away from sweet stuff?

    I know that sugar is not good for cancer patients, yet i'm having a really tough time staying away from sweet stuff lately. What do you all do when you feel like having a desert, a candy or even some thing simple as a donut or pancakes for breakfast..... :)

      I don't deny myself anything!! I eat fairly healthy so having fun stuff isn't that big of a deal to me:)) I have noticed though my sweet tooth is stronger since dx. I never was big dessert person but now occasionally I WANT it:) also never big candy person..now it's a real treat!! I didn't buy potato chips either BC. BUT I've occasionally bought a bag when I'm craving salt! Lol but i do have to be careful there cuz I will swell up:( ...sodium...ugh

      Wow Roltidelynne. I find my sweet tooth is almost absent during treatment. However, when I return to the living between treatments it does return just as strong as ever.
