Does this happen to you. I can't watch a cooking show with out getting hungry and their foods look so much better on tv than what I can do, not fair.

Oh for sure! I don't even like watching them because they just make my mouth water and I want to eat. It's hard for me right now because I quit smoking and I've gained some weight. But watching these shows are torture, lol! I used to be able to eat anything I wanted but not no more. They also make everything look so darn easy and simple to make. I wish I could eat all that good stuff but alas, I can't right now. And yes, it always looks better than what you can do and it's not fair!

Thank you. It was a long time coming but I finally did it and I do pat myself on the back for it. I just wish I didn't want to eat all day long. That's the worst part of it.

I like watching those shows too. They don't make me want to eat though. I like the way they prepare the food and the way they look so good in the plate.

does to me as well, but I always get so many great ideas form that channel. I love the fact they show you step by step how to make a recipe. Have a good one there...

I watch that network and I do get to being hungry sometimes but not always. I try to learn some new tips and tricks and get some new ideas from them all. I like Bobby Flay, Rachael Ray, Giada, Alex, and so many others on there. I can't cook as good as they can either, wish I could.

Oh yeah, this happens to me almost every time I watch Rachael Ray, and you know she's on at 12pm here, so I have the whole afternoon to be dreaming of the foods I could be making. She'll have some delicious looking dish that she has there on tv, and then I think I want to make that one!" and I go to the cupboard and I don't have but maybe one or two of the ingredients.

Those shows were made to entice the viewers that is why they are so popular! And yes, I always get hungry watching shows like those. Dont worry, it's normal. I dont think there's someone who can watch a show like that without getting hungry.
