What's the one thing you can't give up?

Does anyone have a food they can't give up? Something you save up all your carbs for? Mine is ketchup. So far it hasn't interfered but I still feel a tad guilty using it because it's made with sugar.

    Chicken boob and tuna. They are literally the only two foods that I eat all of the time, regardless of bulk or cut.

    I like some dry wine or alcohol on the weekend. I'm completely fine with dry wines or liquor with no sweet mixer, but I wouldn't be too happy if I suddenly had to stop ever having it.
    Its no problem to limit it to once a week though.

    Movie popcorn. No other carbs that day and more than normal water intake. It's usually on a workout day as well.

    I'm the same as @lovesretirement! I know movie popcorn is terrible for you, but it's so good. Thankfully, we don't see many movies.

    Spice. The hotter the better. If I couldn't eat spicey food I'd just stop eating.

    Luckily for me, I can make things spicey without adding a lot of carbs.

    Ice Cream. I discovered Halo Top recently and just the 1/2 cup serving is perfect.

    Dairy, (heavy whipping cream and cheese), I have seasonal (environmental) allergies that have somewhat improved but not gone away on this way of eating. They always say milk makes you produce mucous. I have thought I should try giving up dairy and see if that makes a difference with my allergies/mucous production. I thought I could swap out coconut milk/cream for my HWC, but can't handle the texture/throat feeling I get with coconut anything. I love my cheese also!

    My weekend wine. Love a glass of red with my food, or a glass of prosecco .
    I can be good all week long, but if this is to be the way I eat for the rest of my life, I need to ensure it is sustainable for the long run.

    I have to agree with @nvmomketo, and @freckles2002. Diet coke! I have tried going even to Diet Rite, but it is just too sweet. So now instead of drinking it all day long, I have tried to start using it as a reward for drinking my water. If I get my water drank for the day, then I get to have my diet coke. If the water doesn't get drunk, then no diet coke.

    Potatoes. I don't eat them anywhere near as much as I used to and I can't eat them in as large of quantities. But every now and then, I want some fries.

    Wine and darkest chocolate, that sounds like two but I have them together so it is "one snack food" in my head. I could never give it up totally. I don't have to have it, but I could never cut it out of my life. I have given up a lot of 'vices' in my life but I won't give this up.

    I have been wanting to try the halo top ice cream but it's not sold in my area. Looks like they have a lot of flavors!

    Coffee, dairy products, Halo Top ice cream, 90% dark chocolate, peanut butter, and the occasional cappuccino made with whole milk.
