For me it is potato chips and dip. They are my favorite snack and I know they are no way any good for me but still I crave them so much. Chips with a sandwich too are just so hard to do without. I do like salads with them but they are not so easy to grab, are they? What do you miss most watching those fat grams? (Pixabay image)

Oh I know Rachel, I love pizza too. Good news is I have seen a cauliflower crust pizza that I think could save us all! I am going to try that real soon. It looks delicious and someone else here has tried it and says it is fantastic.
Let me know how you like that cauliflower crust, Jackie. I have seen cauliflower made like mashed potatoes, but never tried it.
I sure will let you know. As I said I saw it fixed online and it looked perfect, & not crust hard as I know I would not like it. I will try to get to it soon, I have the cauliflower frozen already just got to wait til everyone else is ready!
I don't think it was quite like a binge but a couple of weeks ago I bought a pack for company who put off their visit and I ended up eating the whole pack. Just a little each night but still gone in a few nights!
It is so hard to fill up without carbs, isn't it? Many eat crackers instead of bread and I am not sure they are not worse. There needs to be more things on the market like fat free crackers you can actually chew without breaking your teeth!
How on Earth to give up on pasta or bread?!
Sheer BRUTE self-denial...it's difficult at 1st. but then just like anything, we adjust (hopefully) Hey...there R times I will stare @ a carrot cake & feel like crying!! LOL. I just know if I folded 2 my cravings, I'd cave in. Gotta B tough! :)
peachy...actually, it's not the fried chicken that is a bit bad for us, it's really what we fry it in! Use olive oil or sesame seed oil....& have it maybe just 2 or 3 X's a month. Bon Apetite!
Yeah I love chicken too, but I like shake and bake and it is much easier to fix.
Chicken is one food we can make at least a ZILLION ways, isn't it?? LOL I chicken binged for a long while...until I couldn't stand the sight or thought of CHICKEN! Gotta have variety. That's what most strict diets lack!
I am trying on the permanent changes and I am getting a lot more water in me a day. hoping that will help for health and diet. I really loved water as a kid but today none of it is good to me. But I get it down.
I have 2 drink lots of water or kidney stones R worse. 1 surgery 4 removal was enough. I gave up sweets for a yr as a teen on a bet from my mom. Won a $100 4 it that made it easier. LOL. Now the pizza and pasta would be torture 2 give up completely.
That is bad.So sorry. I use celery seed for my kidneys, hope it would help keep away stones too!
Celery seed? Haven't heard of trying that. Not as bad as it could be. Don't worry about me . Docs were amazed I wasn't doubled over. High pain tolerance most of the time. It's only bad when it causes back spasms. I learned how to avoid them when I c
Yes celery seed has been so good for me, look it up, but read any warnings too if you are on blood pressure meds, which I am but I do great. I sprinkle it in salads, on sandwiches, even ice cream if I need to get some in me!
Oh. Unfortunately, I am on high blood pressure meds. It never lowered after my youngest was born. But I will still look it up. How does it affect the meds?
Well it can lower blood pressure 2 so you have to take care not to get it too low but that has never been a problem 4 me, especially since mine loves 2 run high off & on. It gives me nice lows but never too low, I have a wrist cuff to check some.
Interesting. Come to think of it, I think I have heard of celery lowering blood pressure. Learn something new everyday. Thanks. But I am craving pumpkin seeds right now. Too bad I don't have seeds of any kind around here. LOL.
It is like black pepper no taste or snack satisfaction. https://www.webmd.com/vitamins-supplements/ingredi...
