Meaning food that you don't dare keep in the house because you will eat.it.all? Or foods that once you start eating them you can't stop? Mine are:<br><br>
Any type of bread and butter<br><br>
and<br><br>
those vanilla or chocolate creme cookies you can get like a 2-pound package (either all vanilla, all chocolate or some variety of both vanilla and chocolate) for about $2 at Wal-mart. I will eat the entire package--not good at 170 calories for two cookies. There's probably about 50-70 in a package.<br><br>
Now you go. I'll probably think of more and they'll all be sugar or carbs I'm sure. I think someone mentioned those cookies in the random thoughts thread so it got me thinking about them <img alt="sad.gif" src="http://files.kickrunners.com/smilies/sad.gif">.<br><br>

pizza and pasta - I have a tendancy to eat until I am sick with these foods. <img alt="sad.gif" src="http://files.kickrunners.com/smilies/sad.gif">

Corned beef is the only thing I will literally sit and eat until I can't move. I allow myself to do it once a year.<br><br>
We can cook a 5 pound brisket, and DH will get one sandwich. I will eat the rest. Usually within 24 hours.<br><br>
Real, full strength Coca-Cola is another one for both of us. We just cannot keep it in the house. At all.

When I was a kid, the local Kosher deli (Corky & Lenny's) served a sandwich that was a huge quantity of corned beef sandwiched between two potato latkas (instead of bread). Just typing that, I can't believe my arteries aren't all blocked.<img alt="uhoh2.gif" src="http://files.kickrunners.com/smilies/uhoh2.gif">

pringles. I cannot stop eating them. I become the pringle monster.<br>
Fortunately they are only allowed in the house 1-2 times a year. Tops.

Oreos...I can only buy in the single serve packages. I could literally eat an entire bag.<br><br>
Actually, anything with sugar and fat can be difficult for me to resist overdoing it.

Chips or crunchy processed foods of any kind.<br>
Ice Cream<br>
Fruit Juice<br>
Chocolate<br>
Bread, I can only buy exactly the amount I can eat during one meal otherwise a whole loaf will be gone before I even know what I'm doing. So basically I can only eat rolls.

Ice cream<br><br>
Actually, to be safe I keep out any junk food most the time. I used to be bulimic and although I don't usually binge the potential is still there and I don't have any desire to have anything tempting there lest something bad happens and I'm emotional and might find myself thinking in old ways. I used to absolutely keep anything out. Now I just limit the amount at any one time. (Like my DH is going to bring home one cookie box at a time when he gets the GS cookies. Normally I can eat just one and go about my day but if something really bad happens the potential is there.) You can binge on non-junk foods but you can't do as much damage and although it's been even longer since I did this, it's almost impossible to purge them.<br><br>
I can eat all the berries I have on hand- so they don't stay in the house, but I buy them and don't care how many I eat. <img alt="smile.gif" src="http://files.kickrunners.com/smilies/smile.gif">

Sugary cereals - especially anything captain crunch, or lucky charms. They've all been banished from my house.<br><br>
Thin mints seem to kill my self-discipine as well.

Milk Duds<br>
Beef Jerky<br>
Crusty Bread

I forgot one and we were just talking about this at work yesterday.<br><br>
The Turtle Chex Mix they have out now, with the coated cereal, peanuts, pretzels, caramel corn and little m&m type candies in it. I can buy the little individual serving bags out of the vending machine or the 100 calorie packs that just have the cereal, but no big bags because they will get eaten the same day, within hours of purchase. Not even the middle size bag that has about 4 servings in it. It will be gone between the store and my house and that's only 10 minutes of driving.

An open jar of olives has a 28-minute life expectancy ... but you can cut that in half if there are Wheat Thins and cream cheese nearby.

A "recipe" from my MIL that is loved by my DH's whole family:<br>
blend a block of cream cheese (I use low-fat) with a quantity of olives (a can of black olives is fine; good olives even better) in the food processor until creamy. This "olive cream" is great on bagel, crackers, everything.
