Default What was the hardest food for you to give up

It could be a specific food, or type of food.

For me, fast food most definitely! Taco Bell, Del Taco, Micky Ds etc. etc.

It's hard anymore though I got over the hump!

So what are all of yours?

I dont give up on entire foods rather I put them into my plan or treat my self to them sa once a month for some things and once a year for others (the trick is always plan). I would rather savor foods in monderation than tell myself that I can never have them again. For me the hardest thing to cut down on was refined sugars such as candy and baked goods! Oh my downfall at times.

Chocolate. Candy. Milkshakes. Ice cream. Pretty much anything sweet. These are things that just don't have a "healthy substitute" and it kills me. I'm diligent about eating things without the butter, cheese, dressing, toppings etc. that I used to add, and switching to whole wheat alternatives and lean meat was fine, but I just can't find anything that satisfies me like chocolate when I really really want it.

Something I've noticed is that I don't have trouble giving it up, per se - I can pass these things by fairly easily. The problem is that doing so makes me feel AWFUL. I get down in the dumps, stressed, I feel like I really can't live without it sometimes... I know I will often feel worse in the long run if I eat the stuff, but it's still torturous when all I want is a bag of oreos or a twix bar and I can't have it.

Pizza, tortillas, and TOGO's sandwiches! I won't give them up forever though. I'll treat myself to them again, hopefully soon

I'm in the process of giving up soda. I'm addicted to Diet Coke. I've also been working on giving up fast food, but I slipped two weeks ago and had a Whopper from BK. Soda will definitely be the most difficult thing for me to give up.

crafty I gave up diet coke 4 months to the day today - you CAN do it. It is hard but it can be done. I was drinking at least 6 -8 cans a day!!!! You can do it!!

There isn't hardest food per say for me either -- but hardest thing for me is cooking every day and not eating out all the time.

Ugh. Diet Coke. And I hate that it's hard for me. It's not even food, for crying out loud.

Yeah, I haven't really given anything up totally. I just eat bad things with less frequency and in smaller quantities.

I haven't given up anything completely. However, I do struggle with limiting the amount of chocolate that I intake.

I would say that I had to cut back on pizza, mexican food like nachos, enchiladas and tamales, and pretty much all Chinese food. Now I just have pizza once every couple of weeks and I will have tacos with shredded chicken and corn tortillas with a mix of vegis, and for Chinese food I have lettuce wraps. However, I am pretty sure the sole reason I gained 50 pounds during my pregnancy was because of Pronto Pup's corndogs. SO AMAZING.
