General chatter - What single food would you VANISH....

Along the lines of the evil evil food porn poll

This is something I used to fantasize about. What one single food do you wish you had magically never eaten. This means a fairy godmother comes along and every morsel of that food that has ever crossed your lips vanishes and its LIFETIME TOTAL calories with it...and the pounds those calories are worth. You have to be careful, because if you pick something you used to eat a LOT of, you could vanish into nothing. So say you used to drink one coke a day for 30 years, if you pick coke at 120 calories x 365 x 30 = 1, 314, 000 calories /3500= 375 POUNDS would vanish instantly - killing most of us.

Caveat - if it is a healthy food...the nutrition from that food vanishes too.

Also. You may never ever ever ever ever eat one morsel of the food again.

For me it is potato chips. I never liked them all that much and I think I have eaten them just often enough that they would be about 20-30 lbs. (doritos on the other hand would vanish me :p)

Cookies of any sort -- I think I would be underweight though without them!! (but that's quite okay!)

Glad you explained about the coke cause I would have picked Mt. Dew, I used to drink a 6 pack daily of the 24 oz. bottles. So, I'll choose Kentucky Fried Chicken original meal deal. We used to have that once every week or two.

cookies would absolutely vanish me. And I could never give up cookies forever. You are stronger than I .

I agree Ice Cream!! My mother-in-law absolutley loves ice cream ans she buys these HUGE tubs every time she goes to the grocery (however, she dosent have to worry about her weight , she's like 110lbs) and she always, always, always envigles me to have a cup (or 2) with her at least 3 times a week. I did great last night though, I put out a huge serving of chocolate chip ice cream, and then my husband caught me, so I put it back in the fridge without even taking a spoonfull! :)

Dry Cereal and/or granola. I eat that stuff so mindlessly and it doesn't even fill you up that much. Also peanut butter...Healthy yes, but not in big quantities!

I'd have vanished at least 5 times if I'd make ice cream disappear. I've eaten way to much of it over the years.

I'd have to say pretzels. It probably take off about 20 pounds over my life. Eat them some, but not to much and I could definelty live without them.

Sweets. Any and all sweets. But if I just did away with chocolate, I'd probably be a runway model by now. :D

I can resist the sweets, but cheese always sneaks up on me.

Refined sugar. I always thought my problem with sugar was limited to TOM (the only time I really crave typical "sweets" ), but then I realized all of the savory things I love that are really sugar - like catsup, french dressing, barbecue sauce, sloppy joes, sweet and sour chicken, poppy seed dressing...

French Fries.

I always eat them when they are on the plate, but I don't really get that much enjoyment out of them. I could pass them up in an instant. I actually have a friend who refuses to eat them.

STEP AWAY FROM MY :cheese: AND NOBODY GETS HURT!

I am not a big ice cream or cake eater so take that away and I'm at ideal weight! Take awy my nachos or chips and dip and..."HEY! Where did Gary go?" :wave:

Candy...
Sour candy, sweet candy, I love it all.
Usually when I go way over my calories for the day it is because I have eaten so well all day and then I sit down and eat a snickers bar or a bag of sour skittles (one of my favorites) sometimes both.

oh, and pringles...
I don't eat them often but when I start, I can't stop. They just have such a good crunch.

If I could erase cookies, I'd be gone 10 times. If I just erased chocolate chip cookies, probably about 3. So I'll have to pick something else!

I'd erase McDonald's breakfast -- Sausage McMuffin, hashbrowns, and orange juice was all I ever ate for bfast there. I'd probably be about 20 pounds lighter from that, and no nutrition, so not missing much there. I'd almost be at goal! :D

I'd better not say french fries in general or I would probably disappear, but I'll say BK french fries. I ate those probably 3 days a week for about 3 years. OMG, If they vanished I could be a (much) older Olsen twin sister.

Ennay, I have thought about that same kind of thing - and I like your example of being minus 375 pounds - which goes to show that the standard math calculations of calories = pounds can't be taken as an absolute law! Ok - for me, wine. If I used the calories/pound calculation I'd be minus about 3845043850439 pounds by now :D , but in reality I'd only be oh, about down to a real weight of 120 or so - my estimate!

I'll have to go along with the French Fries answer.

I swear I'd be 115 lbs right now if french fries didn't exist.

Grande double shot white chocolate mocha anyone?

I swear for a short period during high school I lived for those things...and they cost me a good 30 to 40 lbs easily. By the way, back then Grande was the big one... venti was news to me a couple months ago when I went in to get a coffee.

still have to have one once in a while, but I'll get the smaller one, thank you.

When I first started reading this fast food was the obvious choice but I'd be like -375 pounds without it and I won't be giving it up forever. I'd have to choose processed boxed/frozen meals (like Hamburger Helper). There's so many more calories in those than making tastier, fresher meals myself. That would definitely take off a few pounds.

Tough one, it's a toss up. There really is nothing that would have made me disappear at 287 lbs, but now at 187, hmmm.....

It's between ice cream and pasta. I'm gonna go with ice cream, yeah ice cream.

Dont forget the law that if you vanish it...you may never ever ever have it again. This is one of those evil fairy godmothers from Grimm fairy tales who always puts in a nasty catch. I never could decide if the evil fgm would make me violently ill if I ate a chip or would bring all the weight back instantly

I change my answer then, I would want all french fries to disappear, I wouldn't want to live in a world without cookies or candy.

I'd have to say it's a tie between butter & oil - would love to vanish all those calories I'd used for cooking! (or foods I bought in restaurants were cooked in!) I rarely use it now, so I'd survive :)

Chocolate cake w/buttercream frosting. That is so evil and I can't stay away from it. Im sure I'd be at goal now if not for that. My family's so big and w/every birthday it's that evil cake.

It's okay let the ice cream vanish FOREVER. I've had more then enough of my favorite stuff to last a lifetime, many lifetimes in fact. Goodbye, good riddance.

Oh yes he is.....:mad:

lol, sorry when you have had a magic fairy godmother weight loss fantasy for 20 years, its kind of hard to change the rules. Seriously, how twisted am I that my magic fairy godmother has a hidden catch? Who thought it was a good idea to read the Brothers Grimm to a 5 year old anyway?:D

I'm not EVIL! I'm just what happens when a girl is raised with 4 big brothers, no sister, parents that work full time, no female cousins and no females in the neighborhood. Besides, I'm a southerner. It's against our NATURE to be evil.
