Craving a soft pretzel right now



Recommended Posts

For some messed up reason I am craving a Philly Pretzel Factory soft pretzel. Maybe I am just bored because I know I am not hungry and I am well hydrated. GRRRRRRR! Must. Resist. Temptation.

I get real bad cravings too but I try to find a healthy substitute eg. Craving baked camembert - make a toastie with 1oz low fat cheese and using cauliflower instead of bread. If I fancy chocolate I have one square of 90% chocolate instead of the tonne of crap quality stuff I used to have. Maybe have low fat cream cheese with some celery? Xx

I still avoid stores with a bakery in the morning because the smell of fresh bread freaks me out.

i had such an addiction to bread it was unreal. i just avoid the bakery's now and skip the bread cause that is a place i never want to go again.

the sight of sweets and breads doesn't have the same effect once the smell is gone.

i can cruise thru the bakery area on my way to something else without a second look but oh lordly let me smell that bread baking and i have a very unhealthy reaction.

just one of those things.

It's after 7:00PM here and I've set 7:00PM as the cut off for food intake. I had a pre-surgery bad habit of eating late. I am leaving that one in the dust.

Good on you @Mattymatt x

Thanks! I'll admit to being motivated by weight loss results. I am so over being above 300 pounds. It's just killing me slowly.

I’ve had some cravings here and there as well, but it is admittedly much easier to ignore them when actively seeing good results in the weight loss department.

I guess the real struggle will be saying no to those old favorites once progress slows or a long stall comes along. Praying for the strength when my time comes.

Exactly!

Possibly unconventional but works for me: when I'm craving something from a specific junk food place, such as McDonald's or pizza or whatever, I just go look at their menu online and look at the nutrition stats for whatever I am in the mood to order, and most of the time the combination of looking at the pic/stats is enough to get me past my craving.

Well good for you for resisting!

I struggled last night. Gah. The bit*h! My craving was for taco meat + some borracho Beans in the fridge spooned cold onto tortillas that Mr. F. brought home with tortilla Soup (long gone). I froze the chips. And they have haunted me since! :angry: I'm thinking that the chips may have to be thrown out (hate to waste food) cuz I'm afraid their attraction is too powerful for me.

I barely managed to get through it because it was so late and didn't want to eat--by Water loading. Then I drank a cup of hot black decaff and put myself to bed in a snit.

If it's during eating time, then I would replace the craving with water loading and/or a hard boiled egg.

Every time I have a glass of wine I’m instantly thinking of mozzerella sticks or egg rolls. 😭 but I just whine about it for a minute and remember I’m only 30lbs away from goal. And if I open the mozzerella stick door (even the Pinterest healthy ones) it will never shut again and we can’t have that!

Now that is one of the best ideas I've heard in a while!
