I can't handle being around JUNK food

Postby FatFukShrinking » Wed May 26, 2010 1:15 pm

Is anyone else like this? I can't handle any junk food around me. I have to make the person i live with hide their junk food. I feel really stupid and guilty for doing this, but it's the only way i can get by.

Last night i opened up the pantry and there were the most delicious looking chocolate biscuits, plus some other junk. I started to salivate looking at it and had to get it out of there. I gave it back to the owner of the food and said HIDE IT! I can't just have them put it in their room, or i will find it. I need them to hide it from me. Out of sight out of mind.

The times i really want to cheat are when other people are eating junk around me. How do you handle this? Do you ask people not to tempt you? Is it too much to ask people to do these things for you? I feel like i should be able to see the food in the pantry and control myself.

i STILL cant control myself so the rule in our house is if you want it - eat it out but dont bring it home! The worst food we have in our cupboards is air popped popcorn or weight watchers bars.. if we buy chocolate we buy one small one each and then once it is gone it is gone! i made the stupid mistake the other weekend of buying a block of cadbury - it was gone in two nights.... Chocolate is my vice and if it is in front of me it isnt for long! :lol: :roll:
So my advice is - either have your family members hide it (but really they prob shouldnt be eating it either!) or stock your house with healthier alternatives that you either will eat but it will be less detrimental to your plan or that you wont be bothered eating cos it just aint worth it!
good luck :D

I feel you FFS, before this weightloss journey I used to buy a big packet of chips for my daugter containing 50 small packets of chips for school, now she has to go buy a packet of chips at the tuckshop every single morning I just cant resist the junk on site myself so we are in the same boat. I do feel like it is unfair to my daughter though but what can I do???

If your not going to feed yourself chips, why give them to your daughter everyday? Maybe try something like little packs of rice crackers, or rice wheels?

Yes, if there is crap in the house I have to eat it...

My husband is a cop and my friends love it when I tell them that he has to lock his chocolate in the gun safe :P and hide his key so that I cannot be tempted!!

Also, I used to feel bad that friends or mum n dad would drop in for a cuppa and I had nothing to go with it... now I freeze some cake or scones and they are less tempting for me. They thaw out in a few minutes or in the microwave.

My favourite junk food replacements....
- snakata "corn chips"
- rice wheels
- vita wheat rice crackers
- pop corn (air popped, no butter)
- chocolatte drinks
- a teaspoon of nutella - (not strictly a junk food replacement but damn good when you NEED chocolate)
- vive lite biccies (although havent had these for ages!)

I have just (re)discovered a chocolate fix which I used to love when I was a kid.

Ovalteenies. You get 15gm packets (i got mine from the chemist) and they have about 50 cals a pack, less than 1 gram of fat and 12gm of carbs (not low but better than real chocolate).

It got me out of a craving the other day so I say, give them a go!!

I think i'm weird, junk food has absolutely no effect on me. I've had chocolate sitting in my pantry for over a year. The only time I eat it is socially, and then its just a little bit.

Haha! When i first got married about 2 years ago I couldnt stop eating the stuff (i knew marriage was fattening!), and then one day I was completely off it. My theory is I ODed on the stuff :lol:

I am a bit like that with potatoes. I used to LOVE them, but now...I just don't care for them (unless they are deep fried, salted and put in a potato chip packet!!)

There's a lot to be said for OD-ing on things that arent good for you lol
