When I looked like this, I had very few foods that were off limits.
Some foods that rarely darkened my door when I weighed 305 pounds were foods like Brussels sprouts, spinach, cauliflower, fish, and oatmeal. I walked right past them in the grocery store, never thought to cook with them, and of course never ordered them at restaurants. After all, why order a salad with spinach leaves when I could have French fries with my fried Monte Cristo sandwich???
As I lost weight, my list of foods that never darkened my door, passed through my lips, or got ordered at a restaurant shifted.
At first the list of foods I gave up were foods such as fried chicken, Pop Tarts, Little Debbie Snack Cakes, Oreo cereal, Cool Whip, and frozen pie. (There were more but that gives you an idea of what I stopped eating. 🙂 ) Over time I gave up more and more processed foods, and never looked back. And more importantly, I do not miss those foods nor do I want them.
So here’s my question to you on this Friday:
What food, or foods, have you put a stop to eating completely? And more importantly, is your choice for the long term or is it just a temporary choice to help you control cravings while losing weight? Diane
