    Takis. The fuego flavour. Ohhhhh how i could eat bags and bag. They used to be harder to find here, i had to go to the latin store which is way out of the way but now my grocery store sells them.
    So far ive stayed away.

    Potato chips. ANY flavour. Simply can't have them in the house...but I still think about how good it would be to have some every day :(

    There is a jar of Nutella in the house.

    This is okay, because I haven't had any in months. I know the jar is there, though, and every time I toast a half-bagel to have with some peanut butter I think 'well I could put Nutella on this instead...' but if I do, I will remember how amazing it is and then Bad Things will happen. Nope. The Nutella is Forbidden.

    See also: chocolate Pop-Tarts. I don't gorge on them - I'll have 1 and be fine - but even though the calorie count of a single Pop-Tart isn't terrible on its own for breakfast, it will fill me up for all of five minutes and I'll end up overeating later. I do miss them, though...

    Don't think we get those in the UK - which is probably just as well! Cinnamon sugar is basically like my equivalent of crack :D

    Chocolate Nutella. If I know its in the house, even if it doesnt belong to me, the jar is gone in a flash. It's my kryptonite

    My total weakness is ramen noodles. I can buy a 12 pack & go through it in a week. I used to eat at least 2 at once after getting home from work. I would also cook 2 and eat it like there was no tomorrow. Luckily I was able to stop myself from buying it all together. But I do know for a fact that if I buy a 12 pack today I would go right back to binging on it.

    Good one. Noodles are a weakness for me, too. Especially ramen or Chinese noodle soups.

    In July I gave up store bought granola bars and crackers. I found a great recipe online for homemade granola bars and baked some last Sunday.

    @snickerscharlie I found the PC popcorn and got some for camping. I was drooling putting the bag in the cart...

    I discovered after starting this weight loss thing that Nutella was a 'no brakes' food for me.

    Nutella on Triscuit. No brakes.
    Nutella on saltines. No brakes.
    Nutella on shredded wheat. No brakes.

    So now, no Nutella.

    This is embarrassing to admit. When I was sick with celiac disease before I was diagnosed, I was craving salt something fierce. I was eating BAGS of potato chips and pretzels together (they are a great combination) every night after dinner.

    And weight was just pouring off me. It was a terrible time.

    I have crazy food allergies to shellfish, sulfites and cayenne pepper. I've learned to stay away from sour candies which are my ultimate weakness... there's a bag in my fridge but they've been there so long my son won't even touch them :D

    Haagen Daz salted caramel ice cream. For me a serving of that is a whole pint. And I'm lactose intolerant. So the excess cals plus the extended bathroom time should make me avoid it. Uh nope. If it's in the house it's getting eaten.

    Also I found out if you eat waaaay too much jello it gives you rainbow pee (orange, red, blue, green, purple) for up to a week. Also it shocks the emergency room drs and nurses. Yeahhh don't ask how much jello you need to eat for that to happen lol
