Is there anything that you forbid yourself to buy at the grocery store, because you know you'll consume it *way* too fast?

Nuts- roasted peanuts or cashews. I would eat the while jar so I just have to refrain from buying any at all.

Shortbread cookies and gingersnaps. When we were sampling stuff but Costco the other day there were several things that were so good, that I rolled my eyes and I did not put them in my cart. Pumpkin flavored almonds was one of them. Far too good.

Half gallon container of ice cream (Blue Bell Pistachio Almond). It calls to me! Only buy a pint.

Reece's miniature peanut butter cups. Not the big or teeny ones. The miniatures have the perfect ratio of chocolate to PB. Keep 'em in the freezer.

I haven't been to a grocery store in over two years. So impulsive buying is not an issue. But if I were to go , I am weak and the temptation could wear me down.

You got it Emma. We'll just twist off some of the cookies and make you some triple or quad stack Oreos. How's that sound? I get the leftover cookie parts.

I can't stand the stuff. My granddaughter eats it and when I make her a sandwich and get it on my fingers I wash it off instead of lick it off. Peanut butter is a different story.

Not currently. I seem to have food issues under control (for a change). There are some things I love but am not eating right now, & it doesn't matter if they're near me or not. When I was housesitting recently I just ignored the stuff I don't eat.

It's actually pretty amazing. I think it's a result of high-protein, fairly low-carb eating - I almost never feel hungry & I don't have any cravings - plus some stress-reducing measures.

Our kind or what we call French fries, are really Belgian, Brits call chips, and we named freedom fries because during 2003 we started hating the French because they wouldn't invade Iraq with us?
