Mostly at night when I get off from work around 7pm. Then I won’t eat again until the next day afternoon. I might eat some peanut butter crackers. Another thing I love sweets, but I usually don’t them till til i get to work. I don’t really buy softdrink. If I buy any its a sprit, but I am cutting that out along with the sweets.
I usually don’t eat breakfast. I guess thats where I am messing up. When I am at work I might eat lunch. When I go home thats when I eat something.
that?s probably your main problem right there, when it comes to nutrition:
Do you eat more than 50% of your daily calories at night and does this meal consist of massive amounts of carbohydrates?
Yes, you do and yes, it does.

If you want a short answer, you should eat like that.
The real explanation why what you do is terribly, horribly wrong would take reeaaally long, that?s how terribly wrong it is.
I don?t think you love sweets that much. You only eat so little during the day that your blood sugar drops dangerously low and then you WILL eat something to make it rise again. Guess what foods will do that as fast as possible. Bingo. Simple sugars, aka sweets. Makes it rise real fast, which leads to insuline release that overcompensates, which makes your blood sugar drop, which makes you hungry again.
Could well be that what you experience as craving for sweets is really your body needing a certain level of blood sugar.
Eat like Berardi suggests for 3 weeks and see if you really like sweets that much.
