I am pretty healthy - 5'3" and 123 lbs. in the morning (20 yrs old). I eat well and exercise 40 min a day, but there is one problem. I have these insane cravings for sweets, especially dark chocolate. It's like if I don't get at least some chocolate a day, I will go insane. It's all that I can think about and I will go out of my way to get this chocolate. I know that if I could control them I could tone up my thighs some more.
That's great that you have a healthy diet and exercise regularly. You are not alone in your craving for sweets -- Americans have an average daily intake of sugar is about 22 teaspoons daily - this adds up to 355 calories.
Here's a link to an article called "The Truth About Sugar" that I think you will find interesting.
