    After tomorrow it will be potato chip and/or anything salty.

    I have the same lack of willpower… it’s what inspired this question. Right now, there is a bag of Chips Ahoy Cookies in my pantry. They’ve been speaking to me all day long. I thought I could hold out against them, being all cocky and such that I am, but noooOOOOOoooo….. I cannot resist them. Same with Oreos – especially the Double-Stuf’s.

    You’d think it’d be candy, but I can keep a bin of Dove Promises (Dark Chocolate, thank you very much) in this house for weeks, eating only one a day, or less.

    But those cookies? Man, they’re like Crack. I cannot have them around here. Cookies in general are evil.

    Chips & dip get me, too, here lately. I don’t know, maybe it’s the mindset. I fell off the Weight Watchers Wagon for a little while, and now I”m trying to climb back on, so that means keeping track… maybe my brain is rebelling, and wanting all that stuff “just because”.

    I should have a long list of forbidden foods but I don’t.

  4. Jason says:

    I would have to say that there is a whole halloween bag that should forbidden over here.

  5. Sue says:

    No, we don’t really have any forbidden foods. I probably should, but why start now?!

    If I was the only adult here, I would “severely limit” stuff that we unfortunately have around here. We’re talking sugar (including candies, cookies, cakes . . .). There is nobody here who benefits from having more than a tiny bit of sugar in the house.

    We generally don’t have fried snack foods – because certain people will eat them so fast, we’re talking actual short-term health risks. Personally, I have no trouble staying away from fried stuff, but I don’t bring it into the house because (a) it isn’t worth getting fat and (b) I am not trying to hasten anyone else’s demise.

    Personally, I do not eat chocolate at all (well, I did cheat last Christmas). But I don’t ban it from the house. I have no trouble avoiding it even if it is staring me in the face. That situation last Christmas was odd, but I think it was because there was so much all together, the smell kind of overwhelmed me.

    I’ve gone back and forth on whether I should ban my “rice crisps” (just ate 2 boxes of them today, yum). I should probably give them up, but it’s so convenient to have a “meal replacement” in my bedroom cupboard when I don’t feel like going downstairs and eating the proper leaves, fruit, etc. (I don’t like to go eat in the kitchen when Mr. Houseguest is hanging out in the next room, positioned where he can see and hear me eating. And that is where he usually is.)

    We try to eat healthy and in general we do but we also love chips, candy and once a week hamburgers..i love cheese, what is really not good for your stomach..

    Joy, what is your website theme name?

  8. Nikki says:

    If anything, venison. My brother occasionally gets some but it’s not allowed in our part of the house. The smell is enough to make me gag.

    • Nikki says:

      This makes me think of McDonalds. It is the one fast food place I gave up entirely. I haven’t had it in months.

    • Joy says:

      I have to admit that I like a good Mickey D’s every now and then but it’s not available to me and I hardly ever have it. There are times I crave those fries.

      • SKL says:

        I quit eating the fries years ago. They taste great, but there are too many bad side effects.

        I take my kids to McDs about once a week nowadays. On Mondays we go to vision therapy and I have to give them a packed snack beforehand (so Miss A doesn’t murder the therapist), and then afterwards we go to a McDs “Play Place” which is right on our way. The kids share one plain fish sandwich (no cheese, no sauce) and apple slices (no dip). Or if the snack was big enough and I’m in a good mood, they share one pie. Then they can work it off on the equipment and spread their germs on the touch-screen computers. Could be worse.

        I used to like their cheeseburgers, but the last couple I got weren’t that tasty. I think they may have changed the buns or the cheese or something.

        • Laura says:

          I know they started putting some sort of weird seasoning on the burgers… some days I’ll get one and you can’t taste it at all, and then other times, the burger will be crazy-salty, or ridiculously peppery. It’s weird.

    Anything coconut! My wife is terribly allergic to coconut although I love coconuts! 🙂

    Sweets don’t last very long at our house. So I try not to buy too many it’s just too tempting to eat em up. Trying to be more aware of salt because of occasional HP. What does that leave veggies and salads?
