I just wanted to see what triggers others here to eat too much or binge on that is actually not considered all that sinful.
For me, it's rotisserie chicken. I really don't know what it is but I find myself wanting to devour it like a crazed animal! What's that about? I hope I don't make any vegetarians out there squirm with this confession!
There are other healthy foods that I like a lot and have a tough time eating small portions of (e.g. guacamole, hummus, nuts, etc.)....but put a rotisserie chicken in front of me while it's still hot and I'm an out of control !
Anyone else have such a problem?

Bananas make me crave more sweets or more bananas, I can never eat only one banana it has to be two :banana: ... I love rotisserie chicken also and can eat a lot of it, I actually think it's the salt in it because I get very bloated when I eat it... Macadamia nuts are another of my foods... Actually there are a lot of healthy foods I have to keep away from

I prefer them when they're still very pale green inside with a hint of "crunch", sliced up, with a shake of salt! YUM. I can eat the entire thing and a half in one sitting with a big ole glass of water. Holy caloric intake, batman.

I always cringe when someone mentions them as a perfect snack. I know they are wonderfully healthy but - oh boy! I cannot stop at a nice measured handful - they are gone in an instant and that wonderful tasty crunch just keeps me coming back again ... and again ... and again ...
I do keep them in the house because my partner likes them and can eat them in moderation - but I had to ask her to hide them where I can't find them! Otherwise they tend to sing my name, especially late at night when I'm cleaning up the kitchen right before going to bed.

Got to agree with Krampus and Carter, nuts are a BIG problem for me. When I have them, I have to separate them into individual portions. But my scoop of peanut butter with apple gets bigger and bigger too. I just love nuts!
