So I am trying to become healthier and a few goals I have are to cut out soda and cut out candies and other sweets. I down to the occasional soda at my buddies houses but I'm having trouble avoiding cookies and candy bars. Any tips? I want to completely stop eating candy. Sunflower seeds? Other salty things?

Well if the sweets are getting to you try to but the no name brand sweets that are lower in sugar as a last resort, fruit leathers are a great alternative. Other than that fruit would be your best bet to cutting out sweets. That and some willpower :P
urgh. I cant figure out how to put my bfbc2 stats on here :(

eat clementines, they are pretty sour which makes it feel more like a sweet

Every time you eat a candy bar puch yourself in the groin. Eventually you will associate pain with candy so you no longer eat it! :)

Otherwise just be strong say no and dont snack.

my tick for giving up sweets is to eat sweet fruit. I've started eating a lot of bananas and kiwi personally

banana chips, or if you are excersising, get protein bars. tastes like a candy bar, but helps your workout.

Protein bars are candy bars, just with more carbs/

If you're trying to lose weight protein bars are definitely the things you wanna be avoiding.

Bring salt with you. If you're about to eat it.. Salt the shit out of it. So it'll be too disgusting to eat.

the best way to cut junk out is do it slowly over time. Every week try adding something healthy, or removing something that isnt. but not everything at once.

if you can't avoid it, keep in mind that every bite after the first one, gives less and less satisfaction than the first.

Meaning - if you can't resist, take a bite, chew it slowly, enjoy it, throw the rest away

Also, lift up your shirt and take pride knowing that you just made those "love handle" just a wee-bit bigger.

Or even better, hop on the rowing machine, and see how much work it takes to burn off the 300 calories you just ate with that Snickers bar.

See ya in 45 minutes, rowing at a 2:10 pace @ 19 strokes a minute

You just have to care.

If you cared about being healthier, you'd stop consuming shitty things like candy and soda, right this minute.

Like Mike said, it's not that satisfying in the first place - pay attention to how it feels, eating that nice, greasy pizza. After about the 2nd/3rd slice, you're not even enjoying it anymore -. You're just eating it because those first couple of pieces tasted good.

That's the point where you put the food down, go wash up, and do something else. (Paintball, perhaps? :D)

Substitute the sweets out for something just as tasty. Like a bananna, orange, apple or something like that.

Like for me (I'm in college), I have 6+ choices of meals and just about every option of soda available to me. However, when I started working out and caring about what I consumed I switched from soda to milk, and from burgers and pizza everyday to a salad and a portioned meal. I still eat pizza and burgers, just not as often. Same can be said about candy and junk food.

You have to be motivated, I still have candy and stuff every now and then, but I cut the sodas out for good. Sometimes its good to enjoy a snicker bar or something, just treat it as if it's a reward to yourself and don't eat it as a snack.

Nothing makes you feel better than spending time with your family and friends. Exercise improves the mood because it releases chemicals in the brain called endorphins.

I changed my eating habits about a year and a half ago. Could not stop eating candy and other sweets. Like others said it's really about will-power. But while you're working on that, dried fruit is a great alternative. Although, you still need to watch it, sitting down and eating a bag of dried fruit is better for you than candy, but too much will limit how much weight loss you'll experience.
Good luck.

Best bet is to slowly substitute sweets with an alternative (idk what will work for you, were all different), but after a few weeks to a month you should be eating no snacks. Also, have your parents stop buying candy (if they will.)

Get you some fruit. I like apples and bananas.

Stay away from grapes.
