- Burger King almost every day (worked there during my teens, that's when I started gaining weight)
- Lots of alcohol on weekends
- Not enough water during the day
- Lots of junk food anytime during the day (chocolate, chips, cake and ice cream were my favorites)
- White rice every single day
- Nothing whole-grain, ever
- No vegetables

I never cared about calories or what I ate. I was confident in the way I looked and felt fine. Whatever looked and tasted good to me I would eat.

Days were different. No one in my family is really healthy. I pretty much had anything I wanted. No breakfast usually. Lunches would consist of anything from canned spaghetti o's to frozen pizzas. Dinners would consist of ice cream and boodles with loads of butter on it. I had snacks all throughout the day. Almost never drank water, I loved Arizona Iced Tea. It was pretty bad.

Wow, this is an interesting thread!

My family was never health-conscious and my mom is the kind of person who couldn't gain weight if she tried, so she never "got" why my dad and I were never stick thin. (I wasn't overweight as a teen, just not "stick thin").

So....she was in charge of the food:

- cereal for breakfast
- chips and snacks anytime
- "real meals" but stuff like fried chicken, meat and potatoes....never salads, fruit etc.
- take out, pizzza, etc.

As a later adult...at my lowest weight, I was losing without even trying,...used to eat HUGE bowls of low-fat yogurt, berries and bananas....or smoothies. Paleo-type of meals.

Then,....when I gained it back....
- healthy stuff for breakfast and lunch...
- minimal snacks during the day, but at night...pizza....popcorn....chips....binging on cake and cupcakes....cookies.
- HUGE portions too.

Loving my new app! Calorie counting is actually making sense to me now! :-)

I eat pretty much the same just way smaller portions and more green stuff in between. Never been a junk/sweets/soda person...I'm big on meat and potatoes. No more pasta with cream sauce that's for sure!

My problem was always portion control, not necessarily what I was eating.
