What are your trigger foods?

Mine are chips and anything chocolate. If I can avoid those I don’t over eat!

    Sweets for sure! Yes if I don't get any then I don't binge eat. But if I do omg I have such a hard time getting back on track. So I try to stay away!

    Frosting. I can eat it by itself by the jar. Good stuff, appropriate portions are just not enough for my craving brain.

    Chips and cheeze-its. Basically anything carby and crunchy. Bonus if there's dip involved. I don't usually moderate those well. Ecpecially if I'm hungry and they are easily accessable. And the amount that fits my calories and the amount that I want don't normally coincide. I've reduced them to a once in a while treat for that reason.

    I work at Starbucks and I love pasties! Everyday is a struggle. This year I plan to not touch one pastry from Starbucks. I had a lemon loaf on the 2rd. But I'm fouced again.

    Need all the support I can get. I'm here for others too. I'm been at Starbucks for 4 years. And dunkin donuts for 5 years. I dont leave bc I'm an assistant Manager. And the money is good for now. I'm going to college for accounting. So, some day I can get away from all the sweets.

    I wouldn't say it's a trigger food but for me salty cured meat and cheese is really really hard for me to moderate especially if it is in front of me

    Jelly beans...It's a running joke in our house that I once spent $25 on the bag of jelly beans where you get to fill the bag yourself. Well it was only like $10 but each time someone brings it up, the amount goes up.
    When Easter rolls around I don't know what I'm going to do.

    cookies with milk, especially Oreos. I have to buy them in small quantities like 4, 6, or 8 cookies.

    Chicken wings (can easily eat 3 lbs), nutella (straight out of the jar) and like @sardelsa cured meat (salami, prosciutto, soppressata). Ooo and also samosas.

    I can't keep any of those in the house or I become a monster LOL

    Salt, salt and salt <3

    Potato knishes, pie, jelly beans, anything with cinnamon and a large amount of fat and sugar. (I can usually restrict myself to a reasonable portion of dessert... but if it's got cinnamon in it, game over!)
