They say the first step is acknowleding you have a problem, right?

I’ve come to the very sad conclusion that I cannot be trusted with string cheese in my refrigerator.

I will literally wake up in the middle of the night and devour 5 or 6 sticks at a time. Once, I ate an entire package in the car between the grocery store and home (a 10 minute drive at the most).

I find this ridiculous. I’ve heard of chocoholics, I’ve heard of carbaholics. I’ve seen my friend polish off a dozen Krispy Kreme donuts in one day. But STRING CHEESE?! How silly! I don’t even know why I love it so much, but something about it just sets me off on a binge…

What about you? Any weird or atypical foods you just can’t control yourself with?

lol I am the same way! They are so yummy it is hard to stop at just one and then you go to have one later and it is the last one left out of the package and you are trying to figure out where they all went so fast lol

Frozen peanut m&m's and flaming hot cheetos. Not together, but the good thing about the m&m's is, if they aren't frozen, I won't want them, but those flamin hot cheetos always need to be taken away from me. I feel you! String cheese is delicious! I don't blame you for loving those! Cheese also scares me for "digestive" reasons. But if it didn't, theyd be on my list!

I don't know about string cheese but I know plenty of people who eat cheese in general like it's going out of style. Lately it's too salty for my taste but I used to adore string cheese and would eat it like crazy.

I cannot be trusted with "regular" chocolate, and by that I mean anything under 70% dark chocolate. I can have a piece of that and be satisfied but junk candy, I can't stop. I don't know why, it doesn't even taste good anymore, I think it just triggers old habits. So I have to be very careful and I try to just avoid it altogether.

And cheerios! Honey Nut, plain, chocolate...love, love love it! It's one of the few carb heavy things I even still like, but I can eat bowl upon bowl upon bowl of it without a second thought. So now I have to chug a lot of water after I have it, or have it after a workout when I'm not bound to want to eat much, because I know otherwise, I will go nuts.

I have a string cheese problem, too. I thinks it's the saltiness and the texture that makes it so good.

I have several atypical healthy foods that I can't keep in the house because I'll binge on it:

Chick peas (omg, I love them too much)
Avocado
Olive Oil (I'm embarrassed to admit this, but I will eat spoonfuls of it)
Flax seed
Cottage cheese
Crystal Light
Bacos
Popcorn
Raisins/any dried fruit

Also, I have learned to never buy sugar free candy. It is a binge food that has gotten me quite sick.

This thread is making me hungry...For me it's the ice cream. I honestly could eat a tub on my own over two days. That's the large tub...not the small Ben and Jerry's!!

Oh wow, am I a cheese addict. String cheese is like my secret weakness.

I decided a little while back that instead of buying string cheese, I would get cottage cheese instead - 1/2 cup of fat-free is only 50 calories. It makes a good snack that's filling without setting off my cravings. Maybe you can find a similar string cheese alternate that gives you the same kind of satisfaction without being so addictive!

I'm with LaureeDee on the Cheerios - I can't have a box here or I'm in them all the time. The banana nut ones are DIVINE and I can't stay out of them...

I am addicted to Cheez-Its.

I used to eat them just about every night, sometimes as much as a half a box or more in one sitting.

Since I started the diet, I have tried counting out a portions worth and putting them in a ziploc bag, but I always go back for more. I now buy reduced fat wheat crackers, and I can portion those out just fine. It's only the Cheez-Its I can't restrain myself with, so I don't buy them any more.

I'm awful with binging, but I'm not sure if any of my "favorites" are atypical. Here are some:

Ice cream (I can polish off a half gallon by myself in two days, but don't even get me on Ben and Jerry's. Those are gone in one day.)

Donuts

Cheese

Chocolate

Strawberries

Potato Chips (especially the onion flavored ones)

Special K Fruit and Yogurt cereal

Cherries

Simply Limeade (and any other limeade for that matter.)

Dark Chocolate Almond milk

I have a monstrous sweet teeth.

I know! The stuff is amazing!! I haven't tried almond milk on cereal, though.
