Is there anyone else here who can eat a whole loaf of bread?

I can avoid the chocolate, but yesterday I brought a lovely loaf of seeded high protein bread. I had apprehensions about getting it because I have previously found I can't resist it, ridiculous as it sounds, it's so healthy. This morning, it's all gone! I had no sleep yesterday due to a young child being awake all night. I brought the bread with the best of intentions but I have three slices then want more! The whole thing has gone. In my massive tummy hashtag greed.

    I could if I didn't stop myself.

    Part of it is that when I buy a fresh loaf of amazing bread, I want to eat it fresh. It loses so much of the appeal when it has been frozen, or when it's dry.

    something that works for me with food that I binge on - take the large bag and divide it up into the individual servings - 1/2 slices, then hide the rest - if you only see the 2 slices, you may not binge as much

    Bread was my biggest weakness. I couldn't just have 2 or 3 slices I had to have 6 or 8.

    Fresh baked tiger loaf with butter - yes!
    White well done hot toast with butter and seedless strawberry jam - yes!

    Now I'm hungry... :D

    Thanks Julie. You are so right identifying that actually foods I can avoid on an every ay basis or eat in moderation, when I reflect, if I have had no sleep, I will overeat on... such as: Chocolate powder and bread! Bizarre but true.

    Deannalfisher thank you. Slleask yes best not think about fresh tiger bread too much..!

    Jeffrey, Cm_73 and Sam thank you for sharing. My friends all day but it's healthy just have two slices... oh dear.

    Mach I'm really learning that about myself, I try to be normal and buy what others by, but I'm very unique on what I overeat on. I don't bineg on ice cream but comfort carbs when I'm exhausted (night shift with child) or boredom at working at home... I have tried and tried again and again but I can't keep large supplies of certain foods in the house.

    Yes, I could, but I don't...............anymore. but then, I could eat too much of everything I like, that was the problem.
    Since 1/1/17 I am learning moderation of all food, and portion control. Hopefully on the way to my weight loss goal and being able to maintain a normal weight.

    Having a baby up all night, it is crazy. During our sleep deprived raising babies stage, i certainly had my own scavenging the kitchen nights. Sometimes, just do what you must to survive it and move on the next day. Don't feel guilty, you're a good mommy! Tomorrow is a new day.


    great support, thank you x

    I can easily consume a whole pack of Hawaiian Sweet Rolls or a good Sourdough Baguette. Therefore, I don't buy these items. But occasionally my mom does and I have no self control.
