What's your Kryptonite

What is your weakness when it comes to food? What are you doing to overcome this weakness?

    My weakness was gumdrops. I had them every night.

    I tossed them day one of starting mfp. I haven't had one since nor do I go down the candy aisle at the grocery store.

    Any form of: wafer bar/cookie, likely surrounded with chocolate, and combining "sweet" and "salty" together (such as peanut butter/chocolate). Exhibit A:


    I overcame this by simply never eating it. I just had to put it on the "never" list. If I have one, I will have the whole box. It's dead to me, until Goal Weight. Then, I'll probably have a few, one time.

    Mine is bread (any kind - bagels, buns, etc) and potato chips.

    I put bread in the freezer now and only take out a slice or 2 at a time.

    I generally don’t keep chips in the house anymore. I have popcorn and pretzels in if I want a crunchy snack. If I really wanted chips I would buy a small bag only.

    Ice cream, either soft server or fresh from the yum...mostly not easy to find either, so kind of easy to avoid.

    Cereal. Just about any kind, with nice cold whole milk. Comfort food and hangover food in one.

    Nachos! Homemade piled really high with fajita steak, beans, lettuce, tomato, cheese, green chile and sour cream & a cold beer! (attempting to live on said food is probably also why I'm on mfp)

    These. There’s something about them that drives me wild. I used to salivate for Easter candy to hit the shelves. I would rotate stores for fear cashiers would recognize me. I would literally eat two or three bags, or the giant Walmart special “family” bag a day, for the two months run up to Easter, and then the day after I would get up early, and go buy all the half price bags I could, split them between home and office, and hide them.

    This Easter, I told myself I could have one bag for a pig out. I surprised myself by making it last a week.

    Homemade chocolate chip cookies. I make them only once or twice a year and indulge to my heart's content on those days.

    Zesty cheese doritos. And rye and diet coke. Usually together. I can't keep it in the house otherwise I will eat the whole bag. And feel like garbage the next day. Man even typing this makes me want them!! Lol.

    I have a very sweet tooth. Chocolate, biscuits, cake, slices, ice cream ... I also bread pasta, rice, potatoes ... Basically everything that's high in calories :D It was harder for me in the earlier days but as I approach maintenance, I've been happy that I can still eat everything I like as long as it's in my budget. On some days, if something's too expensive, I save it for myself for the next day when I have a topped up budget :D It is hard for me to just stop at one sometimes, so I do have to do additional exercise to offset my vast array of kryptonite :D

    I have a bit of a sweet tooth but I just don't see that (or any food choice) as a 'weakness' to be overcome and defeated. I refuse to moralise food.

    One of the keys to my success losing weight this time that sets it apart from the years of failed attempts is that this time I have outright refused to make any changes that I can't commit to forever. I realised that previously I had made temporary changes in order to lose weight and those temporary changes all lead to temporary results. As soon as I stopped the temporary changes I went right back where I started.

    There's just no way I'm going to spend there rest of my life denying and depriving myself things that I enjoy so I denial and deprivation can't be a part of my weight management approach. I know what I like so I just make what I like work.

    I am obsessed with Mediterranean Mint Gelato from Talenti. I think it is just so good! However, my diet is just calorie restriction and if I’m good about previous meals and I don’t snack. Then I allow myself just some of it.

    Potato chips, specifically sour cream and cheddar. At work, my desk is "the candy desk" and I can limit myself to one or fewer pieces a day, no problem. But, I can't have chips in my house because I will crush a whole bag in a day, even if I have good intentions and start out weighing them.

    If I buy them now, it's got to be in the small bag and then I eat them and am done.
