Home Training for a Triathlon

Nutrition - I just can't give up the Maltesers

I've just come to the end of my second season in tri and knowing that I'm in it for the long haul (read obsessed), I've decided to up my game and actually aim to be good at it. I have a coach who is amazing and who keeps me on track. In only eight weeks with him my improvement is almost frightening. 

However, there is something that I'm really struggling with and yet I know will slow my progress down...nutrition. 

I've been running long distance up to marathon since 2007, and now completed five triathlon super sprints. But my weakness has always been that I'm utterly greedy and have always struggled to give up the maltesars, cadbury wispas and cheeky Friday night curry. That said, please don't think my diet is diabolical - I eat a s**t load of fruit and veg, protein (chicken, eggs) and dairy - but I balance it all out with utter rubbish! 

Does anyone else suffer with their nutrition?? Please don't say I'm the only chocolate addict in the tri community...
