    Potato chips can be a "no off switch" item for me but i impressed myself last night with my ability to steal only one from the plate of my kiddo and not go back for more.

    Course I had to run out the door to a function so I couldn't have stolen more but that's not the point. :lol:
    ...not the food, it's the mood... seems to be a very true phrase. Many times I can have a dessert or a carb and be ok. But other times it gets me into a binge. I have tried to figure out why one exception would sometimes make me go over the edge - was I annoyed by something or someone? Was it just too many exceptions over a few day period that got me into the sugars and the craving?

    I've spent a lot of time trying to figure this out too. For me, it's much more important to understand they why of it. And sometimes I'm successful in IDing what lead me to the "no off switch" moment and other times....i have more work to do.

    Peanut butter. Don’t ever put whip cream on peanut butter. You have been warned.

    They are plenty of low carb pizza options. My favorite is the cauliflower crust. I do mine from scratch but from what I hear the Real Good Foods and California Pizza Kitchen store bought pizzas aren't bad.

    I have Celiac disease and when I REALLY need a pizza, I make a Fathead one. Hubby is not celiac or low carb and even he prefers it. Google the recipe, it's yummy and VERY cheesy.
    BTW, watch out for shredded cheeses as they usually have a bit of starch tossed in there to keep them from sticking into a lump. Phone the manufacturer - #'s are always on the side of the package/container - and ask them if they use any starch or other product to keep the shreds loose and ask if that particular product is GF. *Very important*

    This is a very good point that I don't think most people consider. I made it a point to only buy block or fresh soft cheeses once I started to cut carbs out of my life. Considering how my body reacts when I do eat carb-ish foods I definitely have allergies of some sort.
