My way to conquer those temptations...

Pack up some snacks --- I try and follow the PT CheatSystem--- so I pack up free foods... I bought small food containers, fill each with berries, veggies, then you can add 100 cal pack of nuts if that helps.... Snack regularly during the day, don't wait until you are craving....
My other tool, is I have a small custard cup-- when I really crave something, I don't deny myself, but I can only have what fits in the cup.....
AND, don't look at as a challenge -- look at it as a game,,
How can you create awesome snack packs to make you happy -- even add a LITTLE chocolate if that is what you crave........

Just indulge and then count it. I've been dieting for years and I don't think there is a good way to get over temptations. If you give into them, it's much easier.

There is a good way to get over temptations - stop feeding them! Keep feeding the beast and the beast stays alive! That feeling you get only lasts a few days at most and then i' usually becomes a non-issue. And, yes, giving in is always easier! But that usually doesn't get us where we want to be :)

I was thinking just this morning about how I broke my plan to stay off sweets and that uncomfortable feeling in those first few days of abstaining - then it occurred to me -the things I 'struggle' over are kind of embarrassing…there are people in the world who struggle to stay alive on a daily basis and live in horrid conditions. That made me realize - you know, maybe I can get through a day without chocolate and it won't be so bad after all!

I agree with the above posters. I'd just add - try portiion controlled sweets - single servings, etc. Also, try self talk - I can have it but I choose not to. I'm getting stronger all the time - if I want it, I can have it later, etc. Also, distract yourself when you are craving - clean, phone call, go online, etc.

Some people just can't stop once they set that ball in motion. So, a single serve portion becomes 5 single serve portions…in one sitting. Gotta figure out what the triggers are and sometimes it's just plain easier to say 'no' once in the store than bringing it home and saying 'no' 16 times a day until you finally break down and say 'yes' and then start the 'battle' all over again.
