Trigger foods

I was just reading an article that talked about knowing which things are your "trigger foods". Those are the ones that you have a problem turning down or they end up knocking you off your diet when you eat too much.

For me, it's breads and pastas. I can go for a long time without them and then when I decide that it's okay to have just a little, I end up going way overboard!

For me it is potatoes and chips! Oh wait - chips are potatoes. I'm a salt addict. You can put tons of desserts in front of me and I won't be tempted. Put a bag of Lay's Wavy Lays in front of me and I'm eating the whole bag.

For me, it's peanut butter. I don't know what it is about the stuff but I can eat it by the spoonful straight out of the jar until I just about make myself sick!

Crisps and chips! Although I'm loads better with crisps now and can handle just having the odd bag!

Comfort foods like macaroni and cheese or lasagna are hard for me to turn down and not be tempted in getting a second serving. Yes, and potatoes too. Chips, crisps, mashed. They are addictive.

I'm the same as aboutme. Bread and crisps/chips. I can go ages without them but when I get suckered in it takes at least a week to get back on the wagon

Crisps I miss and I'm the same with pasta and bread, I miss them A LOT but they are easy prepare foods I guess.

Breads and chocolate are my two biggest downfalls, particularly chocolate. I have to keep certain kinds of chocolate candy out of my house entirely; there are a few that I can regulate but it's a constant struggle.

I'm all about the salt and chips. There aren't too many sweet things that I like except for chocolate chip cookies! Doritos, Lays, Pirate's Booty, Kettle Chips, etc. Do I need to continue here? I better go eat a salad right now!

Chocolate and chips are hard for me, too. I've gotten myself to be better trained about my snacks, but it's still hard, especially when it's offered at a party or gathering.

I've learned over time that my chip craving is all about the salt. I curb it with 94% fat free popcorn. Works pretty well for me!
