I like foods that are fattening and unhealthy!! I am trying to lose a few pounds and shape up for Summer time. I just can't resist the urge to eat junk!! I know I shouldn't buy it in the first place but I have realized that if I don't have anything in the house I will actually go out and gtet some fast food. Why can't I resist the urge to eat crap?? Any advise for me? Thanks!!

me too, I just can't resist foods like that, It's yummy!! ha ha ha, foods like this are only good in our tongue, but not in our stomach, but I just don't know! maybe for sometimes, we must eat less of it, but I don't think I ca forget about it at all. I don't know what advise will I give you, because on the first place, I myself too are craving for that kinds of food, all I can say is that, ENJOY! Still you can!

Dear friend michelle all you need to do is stop thinking about food. Drink a ton of water before and after meals, this will help you feel fuller. It may sound strange, but use smaller plates, it tricks your mind into thinking you are eating more than you are, and thus you feel fuller sooner. Instead of taking the whole bag of chips from the kitchen to wherever, put a small amount of chips into a bowl to take with you, and DO NOT go back for seconds. Use some self control. Don't think about food. If you really want to stop indulging in food, you can do it! I believe in you.

I really do think that certain kinds of foods are addictive, and I also think that fat is addictive, since it leads to cravings. I think there is a lot of us in the same boat as you. I do not have much advise, but I will list a few things that have worked for me. Only do grocery shopping once a week, as this will limit your exposure to the bad stuff, and put a limit to your fast food habits. Do not go overboard, just get a littl of the bad and a lot of the good. I have fastfood limit of twice a week, which usually includes one take out for the family, and one fast food lunch for me and the kids per week.

Because it tastes good. It's easy to fix or just grab when in a hurry. And its comforting when your stressed and having a bad day. Who ever decided pizza and chocolate were junk anyways.Keep fruit and pretzels in the house for easy and quick things to grab.
