  • -Egg-less cookie dough so that I could eat a whole bowl at night while my family was asleep without the oven noise waking them
    -peanut butter sandwiches with marshmallow fluff or sprinkles in the middle
    -a whole pizza was child's play
    -peanut butter by the jar
    -those mug cakes that were wildly famous on pinterest (probably 700 cals for a mug-full)
    -Moe's nachos for lunch, which I later figured out were 1100 cals.

    I just...it's so sad to look at it all at once, but at the time it was no big deal.

    Ugg liquid calories a whole other kind of problem. That's where it's not so much what it was but the volume that's sad.

    Twice a week I used to meet up with friends and we would drink 3-4 liters (102-135 oz) of beer in one sitting. While drinking we usually had sandwiches and curly fries or chicken wings with it. 1400-1850 liquid calories but with food, easily 2600+ calories for the evening.

    I have eaten this many times, a Beacon Drive in Chili-Cheese A-Plenty. Huge burger with chili and cheese on it. The A-Plenty means that it is totally buried under fries and onion rings. I obviously had to give this meal up to lose some weight.e249shv4l7ts.jpg

    I would make big bowls like this all the time and eat the entire thing. Now I make dough with protein powder and divide the portions into eight servings.

    Powdered sugar and butter or cream cheese. In a mug, with a spoon. Uncooked pudding mixes. 2 or 3 bacon egg and cheese biscuits in the car after I had already eaten breakfast. Bags of Heath Toffee minis or 3,4,5 Skor bars. I was (am) a closet binge eater.

    raw ground beef

    me too...My mom used to give it to me, I didn't understand at the time what it was. Are you German??

    Me too....we called it "Tiger Meat". It was highly seasoned/sorta spicy and we ate it on crackers almost like pate......and yes, my dad was first generation German. I guess it must be a German thing. BTW-never ever made me sick.

    Not just a German thing. We had it in France too. Heck you can find it in restaurants... it's 'steak tartare', and typically you add a raw egg on top too! I was never a fan, but my father loved it.

    I was wondering if that would be considered steak tartare. I didn't know if that was technically ground beef or finely diced beef (or if that even matters from a microbial standpoint). Kind of envisioning the packet of ground chuck I get in the grocery store, wrapped in cellophane, and digging into that with a fork. I don't know that I've had beef tartare, but I have had carpaccio, and I love that - so I guess it is pretty much the same?

    Yeah carpaccio is thinly sliced. My dad definitely used to buy ground beef from the butcher, drop it on the plate, add an egg, salt and pepper and dig in, lol... But heck, a lot of people like very rare meat, so that's not that different really.

    I used to just slice cheese, put it on a plate, microwave it and eat it with a fork. Like, several times a week.

    That is pretty bad.

    Hahaha, why bother microwaving... I used to buy a chunk 1/4-1/3 lb of good imported cheese (interesting types like Jarlsberg, Real Swiss, Smoked Gouda, Extra Old Cheshire, etc) - cut open the package and eat til gone as one snack. Still tempted once in a while... I am a cheese fiend - the older and more flavourful, the better.

    Yuuuup entire pizzas. I still have "weak moments" where I'll eat half a pizza or something. But I acknowledge it, don't dwell on it, and move on.

    Sometimes I would take a bunch of cheese-its, crush them up, dip a knife in peanut butter, and roll it in the cheese-it debris and eat it right off the knife. Also, crushing up like 4 or 5 oreos in the bottom of a glass and then filling the glass with milk, then drinking the milk but not the soggy oreos. That I would eat with spoon. I did that last night though so "used to" is in the recent past.
