    Choc. protein powder (low/no sugar) shake w/peanut butter, Hershey's Cocoa powder (v. low sugar), splenda, and some cinnamon. Add ice, water, blend, drink!

    I like to add Splenda to alot of my stuff to sweetin' it up w/o the calories. Obvious, but maybe overlooked. I too drink diet soda, but it's not really a sweet tooth killer at all for me.

    I like to mix cinnamon and splenda into 1% cottage cheese and dump in some whole grain cereal, or if you're avoiding carbs you can use Special K Carb Control. Especially delicious if you add some crunchy peanut butter!

    Those aren't 'cheat' foods though. Most people use them as part of their scheduled diet :P

    Of course there's always healthy cheat foods by Anabolic innovations.

    ya'rly, because "cheating" wouldn't be low-cal.

    my best sweet-tooth fix is a bowlful of cut fruit (pineapple, strawberries, melon) with a cup of nonfat plain yogurt poured on it, sprinkled with granola. Kinda girly, but tasty and filling. Helps when you don't feel like cleaning the blender.

    a food I can knowingly eat okay while cutting as a snack without regret is pickles (not sweet, dill ones). 5 cals a serving, the body probably burns about that much digesting them. And they taste alright, have a crunch...

    If you look around here, you can find the recipe for protein pudding. Make that with a scoop of peanut butter, its absolutely delicious

    great for cheat foods, but peanut butter is far from low cal, a big spoonful (1 serving) is about 200 cals.

    (but it's awesome in oats)

    LOL, def true, however you can adjust the PB amount as needed, and with sugar/fat free pudding and protein powder you don't have many calories besides the PB and protein calories
