Question.............fat vs fat?

Ok, so for a few weeks now i have been splurging a bit and having a Wendys burger (along with a salad, too! ). Not the best, i know...........
but i normally have a big craving for sweets. Since eating these sporadic burgers, i havent had that huge of a craving for sweets..........do you think it could be that im replacing the fats i would normally get from sweets to that I get fats instead from the burger?
I do have small sweets, like a Trail mix bar for b-fast a few times a week. (i know its not the best eighter but im working on it!)
PS: I know this post is confusing, i hope it makes sence!

fat is more filling than sugar. You may crave the sugar less because your body is actually filling up on things you may be missing. Now, wendy's is of course loaded with preservatives- make a burger yourself at home. Just don't forget that fat isn't the enemy- you need some amount of fat in your diet.

i find that the more i give in to sweets the more i crave them-i end up needing them everyday if i give in to my cravings . .so if you are like me, maybe eating the burgers is diminishing your need for sweets just because you aren't eating them? (not sure if that makes sense or not)

ultimately-i think it's okay to eat a burger from wendy's once in a while or anything else for that matter! all in moderation!

All I know from all the research I've done and talking to experts is that a calorie is a calorie. From sugar or for fat, if something if a chocolate bar is 200 cals, and a stick of butter is 200 cals, its the same in and the body does the same thing to it.

I don't know if this relates. But I do know that if you are concerned over which fat you should injest, it makes no difference in terms of caloric intake.

I have found that if I am not getting enough protein and some fat in the diet I will crave sweets. I think the body craves sweets because the brain knows that will give it a quick source of fuel. The burger may be providing you needed protein and perhaps fats, so perhaps you might try increasing the amount of healthy proteins you eat. We all need some fat to give us the feeling of being satisfied. I also do not think an occasional burger is bad, I just don't add cheese an mayo - get mustard the veggies instead.
