Peanut paste sandwich craving - help!

Postby Hayley » Mon Oct 09, 2006 4:12 pm

Hi guys,

I'm having a huge craving for this and can't seem to get it out of my head. I've had a jelly and that didn't work, so rather than go and eat the sandwich I crave so much, I thought I'd jump online here and talk about it instead - fingers crossed, cos I don't want to stuff up my program yet again. Help!!!

hi hayley

i had the biggest craving for peanut butter on toast on the weekend when mick was making his toast. i went a did some things around the house and forgot about it. byt the time you clean the shower from top to bottom, fold the washing, make the beds, vacuum, wash the floors etc, the craving will be gone.

Aww Hayley that's no good. You don't need it mate, stay strong. You can do it. Imagine how you would feel after having it and you know these things are never as satisfying as you think they would be.

Hi Hayley, You can get through this mate, if you need to see in black and white what is in peanut butter....This is for 1 tablespoon. I hope this helps...often I find if I am craving something and I look at just WHAT I am going to be putting in my mouth it helps me to say no.

I agree! Studying the labels definitely helps. I like to compare what that says, to what is already written down in my food diary for the day... if it looks bad, I'll try not to eat it. Usually by distracting myself for long enough that I forget that I wanted it in the first place. Housework is great for that :)

Gosh I think I must have eaten about three tablespoons of peanut butter the other night. Crunchy stuff and not even the reduced fat variety. I was hidden in the back of the pantry at my parents' place (I found it after about 10 mins of standing in front of the pantry and staring in :oops: ) I felt soooooo sick I thought I was going to bring it back up again!!!! :( :(

Hope you managed to avoid the sandwich Hayley :)

Sometimes I do this in my own house as well, even though I know there's nothing there :oops:
