I think SAL is right. In my opinion, if a food is primarily sugar, like a candy bar or a cookie which offer no nutritional value, then it is a "sweet". If you find something like fruit, cereal bars and what-not that have something to offer besides just sugar, and their sugar content isn't too high, then you don't have to think of it as a sweet. I think the main idea is to stay away from refined sugar.

I would say no. I love sweets (obviously, I joined this team), and I don't want to completely deprive myself, so I find healthy, nutritional sweets that I can substitute, i.e. bananas with peanut butter. As far as I'm concerned, if it has nutritional value and fits into your daily nutritional goals, it should not be counted as a "sweet". The three things you listed are great snacks. If we couldn't count any sweets, we wouldn't be able to count fruits either and that's obviously not the case. Anyway, long story short, I say go for it.

Hi everyone,
Ever since I joined this group, I have not tracked the days I did not eat sweets because on those days I would eat a snack that would be labeled at an "alternative." What I mean by this is that I would substitute a Speciak K bar for chocolate. But considering the Special K is a processed food, is it also a sweet or no?
