What is your food "porn"? Meaning the food(s) that are just so delicious and nearly irresistible to you? The ones that make your mouth water?

Apparently I can not resist really rare deli roast beef. This came as a bit of a surprise to me as I can resist candy bars, tuna steaks (one of my favorite foods - something I'd eagerly order off a menu over roast beef every time), ice cream, boardwalk fries, and really all temptations.

But last week I bought some deli roast beef (it was on sale and I thought it would be a nice change form turkey, turkey, and more turkey). I made a small sandwich later that day and could think of nothing else but my next sandwich until it was all gone (didn't make it past day 2). I stayed on plan those two days but it sure wasn't my healthiest 1500 calories and really, I couldn't think of anything else but that roast beef until it was gone.

I will not be buying any more deli roast beef for a loooong time. Or if I do I'll only buy a quarter pound since I can't be trusted with larger amounts.

I have many but the old reliables are Mexican and BBQ. I would eat these everyday if I could get away with it.

Cheese fries with ranch. :( I always daydream about eating them. Also, I love Cool Ranch Doritos. Thankfully, I definitely don't eat them half as much as I used to.

yesterday i went to a grocery store around 2 in the morning for cat food (yes, i know i'm crazy) and was just walking up and down the cookie isle longingly! I must have looked bat**** crazy but they all looked so good.

but! i didn't buy any, just catfood and a diet coke as my treat.

There is a web site that is like food porn, it's http://www.thisiswhyyourefat.com/

Is it bad I would eat most of these things if I could? Thank god for my gluten intolerance and my strong will, haha.

Oh my gosh... StephanieM.. I just got lost in that website!

And... While I couldn't eat some of it... a lot of it looked delicious...

As for food porn... anything fried.... potatoes steaming hot with butter, sour cream and cheese.... brie, butter and hard rolls, Patron tequila with lemon and salt... bread... white bread, brown bread, soft bread, hard rolls, seeded bread, cheesy bread, potato chips, salami, olives, NON-diet soda, cheesecake, humungous desserts in general, pecan pancakes that are crispy just around the edges, potato chips WITH chip dip.

Ugh. Okay.

I should delete all of this. But... at least I'm just typing it and not eating it...

Okay, deli roast beef is awesome. There is just something about it that is very drool worthy.
I have several dozen homemade hamburgers that I grilled and have now frozen so I can have them later. All extra lean beef but still so yummy! :)
I have never had cheese fries with ranch but that sounds really good. With fries I usually like sour cream. It's like a baked potato in every bite. Which cookies looked the best? I like Grasshoppers. They taste exactly like Girl Scout Thin Mint cookies.
Getting catfood at 2am isn't crazy! I like shopping at weird hours too because you can avoid the crowds.
That website was crazy! I have to say that I would eat some of that too. I saw this inside out meatball spaghetti thing that looked pretty good. Some of the stuff was sort of creepy though and I swear, while reading the descriptions I could almost feel my arteries slamming shut! lol
Okay I am off to have some ice water w/ lemon slices. :)

Holy cow! That was a very delicious list! Apparently, you are a carb head like me. Potatoes especially. :)

WORD. Hahaha! I love that site. I would never eat any of it though. There is no reason in the world I could EVER justify eating weaved bacon with cheese in the middle and rolled into a log lmao.

But yeah, I love homemade truffles. I could eat them until my stomach aches, and then a few more. For that reason I stay the eff away from them lol.

This whole thread is probably pretty much food porn.

I'm guessing, cause I didnt read beyond the first post, once I saw what I was in for.

[Honestly, I try not to read these, as they just give me images to fixate on & thus they're counterproductive for my longer-term goal.]

buffalo wings with blue cheese sauce
Pancakes topped with crunchy peanut butter and REAL maple syrup
cheesecake of any type/flavor
Carne Asada fries (everything that goes on nachos but on a bed of fries instead)
Lasagna (with garlic bread!)

Agreed! I know that if I don't see it, smell it or taste it, binge food is not much of a temptation. I don't walk down certain grocery aisles, I avoid walking past bakeries, and turn down dessert almost as soon as someone starts to say "we have cak..."

Wow ... that site. It's so mean. lol. Okay, here's mine: cheese (omg, love cheese, especially habanaro and white extra sharp cheddar), sandwiches, pizza (there was this AMAZING pizza my husband and I got at papa Murphy's take and bake. It had lots of mozzarella cheese, diced tomatoes, strips of chicken, garlic, and a creamy pesto sauce! YUM!), nachos, cake, pastries, cheeseburgers, tacos, burritos ... ect. ect. lol. I'm so bad, I know.

Oh, I completely forgot. My favorite candy. Ferrero Roche. Mmm. Thankfully they're a bit too pricey for me, so I rarely get them.

Taco Bell used to be a bad one for me too, but I've cut almost all fast food from my diet (unless I'm eating at my parents and they bring some home) though I do occasionally have premade frozen dinners which I will eventually cut out.

Pizza, pasta, cake, cupcakes, cookies. Im a carb/sweets nut! I just got back from a month in Italy where I literally ate whatever I wanted. The size of a pizza I'd have alone for one meal was disguisting, but amazing. Luckily I didnt gain weight (lots of walking/backpacking). I want that pizza now! At the same time though it was good to get back to my healthy low calorie routine when I got home, not that I was sick of the fatty food I was eating, but I was sick of knowing how terrible I was eating. :)

For me it's primarly mashed potatoes (well actually potatoes of any kind. I'm like Bubba Gump but with potatoes instead of shrimp! :D ), and chocolate!

Fried chicken! I'm a southern gal, and that's one of my worst weaknesses! It goes well with mashed potatoes and jalapenos! :D

Oh man.. french fries. I cannot go past fries. It's so terrible, I crave them at odd times. And I'm still only starting out (for the second time) so it's obviously going to get harder! But...I won't make them off limits because if I did, I'd just end up ordering a large fries or even a massive order from a takeaway shop at some point in a few weeks.
Oh fries. And sometimes I have icecream and chocolate cravings.

Have you ever seen the movie, Chocolat? I don't what I drooled over more -- the scenes of Johnny Depp or the melted chocolate! :p ;)
