I often get cravings for sweets (cookies, cakes, etc). What are some healthy alternatives that will keep me compliant and on track?

Reducing the number of sweets you eat will greatly reduce your sweet tooth. Eating naturally sweet foods can help. Whenever I get a little sweet tooth, I eat some medjool dates.  Dates are revered as nature's candy due to their caramel-like flavor and texture.  Granted, they are not like cookies or cakes, but they satisfy my desire for sweet.
If you are looking for a healthy alternative, you may want to check out a healthy cookie that is available in local natural foods markets.  Nana's Cookies (www.healthycrowd.com) are individually wrapped cookies that come in a number of varieties and are soft, chewey, and dangerously delicious.  I give them my stamp of approval because they are made with whole wheat flour and are sweetened with natural fruit juice and grains.  They have vegan and gluten-free varieties.
