I don't keep anything boxed/bagged in the house (e.g. chips, crackers, nuts, cereals etc).

I can only have fruits/veg, lean meats, eggs, almond milk... basically just whole foods around. If I happen to binge on them, at least they are high volume, high in nutrients & low calorie.

I am a stickler for things that I will allow/keep in my house. Fortunately, I live alone and my boyfriend eats pretty healthfully. I have been wanting to incorporate nuts into my diet but find that they can be a trigger. They are not always a trigger. I tend to individually package my food and also do a lot of cooking on the weekends. This way I can get through the week with healthy food in my house. When I come home and am starving, I have no choice but to go for the healthier stuff.

I can't keep any type of ice-cream in the house, or a binge will erupt. I can easily plow through an entire drumstick pack or ben and jerry's pint in one sitting!

I can't bring in hotdog or baloney. And today I discovered I can't bring in homemade bread. I bought a loaf and except for 4 slices I ate the whole thing. Counted the calories at least and I haven't blown my day. Will just have to be really careful.

Go me go!!

I sometimes feel like a magician because I can make ice-cream, chocolate, cookies, cake, nuts and chips disappear in what feels like are mere seconds.
I'm okay with cheese as long as I don't have nuts or fruit to combine it with in the house, otherwise that's gone, too. Garlic in oil or olives aren't such a good idea either.

i can't have any prepared foods/frozen meals in the house. if it will only take me minutes to heat up, it's a no no. if i'm hungry, i have to actually make something. it forces me to think "am i really hungry, or am i bored" etc. if i'm that hungry, i go cook.
also, no cookies or sugary cereals.

My husband actually keeps Ben & Jerry's in the freezer and it never tempts me. Cookies, however - Oreos and Pepperidge Farms has a Pumpkin Cheesecake cookie - I will absolutely binge on. If I bring pizza home, I can't make myself stop, which is awful. So if I do let myself have pizza, we go out for it and I don't bring any home. And breads. I will eat a whole loaf of fresh bread from the bakery.

Now if I'm out somewhere I can control my portion size (usually) but not at home. Anyone else have this issue?

Chips, salsa, guacamole (absolutely no self control on portion here, I could eat it endlessly), bacon, beef, beer, even certain lean frozen dinners!!!

I wonder if I just had corn chips, avocados, salsa and diet friendly veggies....I could totally survive on this diet. Love it so, so very much. I guess it could be worse? For me its all about portion size.

Cake, brownies, cupcakes...anything sweet and baked can not be in my house. My son baked a cake this weekend and I had entirely too much of it. As long as it isn't in my house, I'm ok. But once it is here, it's in my belly.

I just wanna say I love this thread!

Knowing there's others that are the same as me makes me feel so much more able to cut the foods that I can't eat in moderation out of my diet.These are nuts, nut butters, anything fried or oil roasted, sweets/sweeteners including dried fruit, chocolate/cocoa/cacao/carob. One bit of any of these and I WILL overeat or binge and it's just not worth it anymore.

Being fat is hard. Losing weight is hard. Maintaining your weight is hard. Pick your hard.

So I wanna say that I can't have any sweets in the house, but there are a few that I can have and never touch.

The main things I can't keep on hand include:
Ice Cream
Peanut Butter
Ranch (I will eat it with almost anything)
