Cheese and chocolate! Like other ladies on here I loooove cheese! I could eat it every day and never get sick of it...though now I just have a bit of it grated on a jacket potato or a pasta dish now and then. Chocolate I can go for weeks without but sometimes...just sometimes...that craving hits that no sweet banana, low fat yoghurt or low-cal water-based hot chocolate drink can satifsy. It has to be real chocolate and it has to be NOW!!!

There isn't a food that I wouldn't give up if I thought it was a good thing to do.

Meaning...

I love salsa/spicy things but if for some reason I had to give it up, then I would.
People form allergies and have to give up foods and they adjust
I used to love meat/cheese/etc but I gave those up because I thought it was better for me and I ended up loving the fact that I gave them up.
I love bread but don't eat it often. I don't have a good enough reason to give it up entirely but I find I do better without it on a regular basis.
I love chocolate and fit dark chocolate into my lifestyle but if I had to give it up entirely, I would.

So for me, I'd be willing to give up anything if there was a reasonable reason to give it up.

What nelie said. If a food is not working for body, then it can go. I have already given up sugar and refined foods and I'll ruthlessly (and with great peace of mind) cut anything else that needs to go.

Pasta

and the occasional small bit of candy.

I won't give up cinnabun minis. I always buy the six pack at the mall, eat two and give the rest to my kids. Everything else I've given up like soda, cheeseburgers, fries, pizza, pasta, rice, potatoes and bread.

Peanut butter or almond butter - I eat the no sugar added kind and have found that it actually contains healthy fats that can help reduce belly fat.

Pizza - I love the Kashi thin crust kinds - They taste great and are higher in fiber and lower in calories than my usual weekend kind.

Cheese - I do use the reduced fat kind but abhor the fat free kind.

I agree with the earlier post about Coke Zero. If I'm craving something especially sweets, it satisfies me.

Diet coke for sure.

Chicken strips with ranch.

I think the only thing I have truly given up is McDonalds...which was not very difficult after watching the McDonalds U-tube thing from this website.

Good fats, whole-grain carbs, occasional high-quality (not diet!) treats, and Greek yogurt and full-fat cheeses. And I refuse to give up being satisfied (I refuse to live hungry or settling for food I don't love).

I regularly go through nuts/seeds, avocado, dark chocolate, olive oil, and even coconut milk.

"Junk" is not off-limits, per se, if I really want something. But I won't have it mindlessly, and anymore I don't want it often, and afterwards I always think, that wasn't so very tasty. So those times are getting fewer and farther between.

JayEl, you really made me rethink this question. Before I was always able to pull a fast response of my favorite treat, snow cones, but in digging a little deeper I really don't think I have a valid reason for not giving up a food that I've always enjoyed but has absolutely no nutritional value.

I've had people say to me several times over that I must be out of my mind and how could I possibly enjoy life by not eating fast food. 5 years ago I thought the same thing. And then I gave up soda. And then refined carbs. And not only was I not miserable, but I was thriving.

I think I really need to give what I eat and why a good hard, long look again. It might be the key to getting a grip back on my maintenance.

I'm going on a road trip this afternoon and I'm going to give this some thought.

I don't want to give up my wine or my rice crispy treats. I love them! I'm also a bread freak. Wheat and that wheat bread that has the nuts and stuff in it. I eat too much bread. I can make a sandwich out of anything. I also like grits, cheese grits to be exact! That and cheese toast is a complete meal.

I won't "give up" anything ... but there are lots of things that I don't eat very often. I'll go for weeks without white bread, rice/potatoes, cheese, butter, pancakes, pasta, candy, etc. But once in a while .... sure, I indulge! Then go back on plan the rest of the time. I have to be careful about eating simple carbs though, because it can be a binge trigger for me.

However, I have a terrible sweet tooth and absolutely must have something sweet every day. It used to be candy, ice cream and cookies. Now, it is usually something like fruit, sugar-free pudding, or skinny cow ice cream treats. If I don't get my sweet fix, then I get cranky.

But, I don't consider ANYTHING to be banned for life.

I haven't given up anything, other than ice cream, but only because in the past, I developed an addiction to Haagen Dazs and I found it very hard to have just a serving - I usually finished the entire 500 ml container so the best thing to do was to not to buy ice cream. I don't really miss it.

Other than that, I think I eat pretty much everything but moderation (together with portion control) is the key.
I would probably refuse to complete eliminate bread and potatoes - so instead, I buy very thinly sliced organic rye bread and I typically substitute yellow fleshed potatoes with sweet potatoes.
