Good luck to you all beginning and re-beginning the SBD! As for the 75 calories...I highly suggest you don't take them in all at once. If you're like me, you get cravings where you've just GOT to have something at certain times during the day. For example, my husband and I are pretty much addicted to those fudgesicles-- only 45 calories a piece! Well, that leaves 30 calories left to play around with. Some days I might not have anything else. (Yeah, THAT doesn't happen often! haha)
But seriously, that leaves room for a piece of dark chocolate, some sugar-free candy, etc. If you like peppermint patties, the sugar-free ones are great. Sugar-free hard candy goes a long way for what little calories they contain. And forgive me, but I'm all about the chocolate, so I usually have a piece of Hershey's Special Dark Chocolate with almonds.
The key is to make sure you stay within your limits and do your best not to exceed those 75 sugar-free (junk) calories a day.
The thing is I truly love to eat. So, I'm not about to waste all my calories in one sitting unless it's truly worth it. Drag it out, is what I suggest, and it'll seem to go further.
However, do what works best for you, because you're the one who's got to be happy and feel satisfied in order to continue this WOE.
