Trigger foods?

I cannot keep cereal in my house! One bowl can easily turn into three or four for me. Namely....Lucky Charms...I am usually pretty controlled with portion sizing...but there are a couple of foods that just get away from me....

I wish I were able to have it but it has gone on my banned foods list simply because I can't seem to control myself when I eat it....
If you don't mind sharing...what are your trigger foods?

I'm pretty sure that depends on the time of the month....chocolate and coconut are huffed for me. Greek yogurt is another. I'm pretty good at no wheat and so charms would not do it for me. BUT right this minute a small child is game..I have been eating potatoes for 4 flippin days!

I've recently relented on my grain-free thing a bit with LC tortillas and LC sprouted grain bread from Trader Joe's. While they are good and I don't overeat them, they make me miss other things more than I have since going LC. Plus, I feel I'm relying on them too much which has stifled my creativity in the kitchen. So, today I decided to give them up and go back to being grain free. I guess they aren't technically trigger foods in the way you're talking about but a more subtle way for me.

Definitely cereal for me too... not all cereals, just the unhealthy tasty ones

lucky charms! they are my fav, I don't eat them much b/c I never stop and that hurts my tummy (not like I'm full hurt, but that crap kills my stomach). Also apple jacks, and corn pops... like I said cereal. I am a cereal-aholic.

Yup, cereal for sure. It's weird because I've never in my life stuffed myself silly with candy or chocolate, but certain cereal and potato chips can be a little dangerous as well. I used to joke that I had 20 pounds of collateral damage from Cheetos.

I never wanted to admit that I have trigger foods. In fact, when I wasn't dieting, I guess I didn't...I just ate what I wanted and got fatter and fatter. Now I can see that sugar and carbs in the morning make me want more and more....Good idea to identify triggers.

Just about any carby food can derail me. Especially if I add fat. Rice w/ butter/ popcorn w/ butter, potato w/ butter, sc and bacon! They are just so darn tasty!! The more I eat the more I want...it's a true love/hate relationship.

Until the potato hack, I'd have said potatoes and rice were trigger foods for me which is why I'd rarely eaten them in years. I now know that it's not them, it's how they're prepared that makes them irresistible.

I could eat an entire roasting pan of potatoes or an entire recipe of tuna risotto (notionally large enough for 4 people). I can eat both of those beyond all satiety signals.

I just recently re-introduced grapenuts into my diet, and have learned that 1/2 cup is fine some days, but around TOM, no way. 2 cups easy in a matter of an hour or so, and so bloated and gassy after! Peanut butter also, around TOM is dangerous. Other times, I'm just fine.

Cereal, ooh, crunchy, sweet, little bundles of mouth satisfaction. Christmas cookies as well for me.

They (Kellogg's) introduced Foot Loops here in England, and even through they are not like the American ones at all, I have been having them every up day so far. When we come back to the states we always bring back boxes of cereal.

For me it's cottage pie (with sweet potato mash!). I know it isn't too bad in the grand scheme of things, but I will make a HUGE dish full and I'll have a portion for dinner, and then seconds. Then I will have a couple of spoons of it while cleaning up. I'll put the rest in the fridge to have the following day. Then I will decide to re-heat some for supper (I never eat supper lol). Then in the morning I will decide their isn't enough left for a full meal and have it as a snack!

In fact, thinking about it, for me it is just stopping eating anything I enjoy when I am full. If I really enjoy it, I find it hard to stop eating even when I feel physically stuffed.

Definitely something about cereal... Tastes great, but never satisfies... and I am immediately looking for more to stuff my face with.

Bread... I love bread! I can go way overboard with bread in itself, but I wouldn't necessarily call it a trigger for a binge. However, if I eat a balogna sandwich... or two... it starts a chain reaction. Like the cereal, it's just not satisfying enough and I feel like I need to raid all of the cupboards and the fridge to get whatever it is I didn't get from that sandwich!

My binges started with nuts and then ended with organic white chocolate covered licorice balls (to die for) - sweet/soft and salty/crunchy; something about the texture maybe?

Buffalo Wings are mine, I used to go to this hole in the wall restaurant and get 20 deep fried wings with blue cheese 3 times a week, even after having huge breakfast and lunch. I would eat them all so fast I wouldn't know I was full until I felt sick afterwards.

These days I still get them, but only once every couple of months, and I pretty much fast all day and then have them as my only meal of the day.

OH MY trigger foods,

#1 on my list, PB M&M's. Whatever the size bag, XL, medium, or the small bags, if it is OPEN it has to be eaten until it is gone! SERIOUSLY! I simply don't buy it. If I do, it is the small bag at a convenience store. PB M&M's are MY CRACK! I have never EVER done drugs, but I know the draw, constant inner voice of addicted. IF they are in the house, they SCREAM at me till I eat them ALL!

#2 any baked goods. 1 cookie means the entire batch. 1 slice of cake, never enough. I combat this easily. Thankfully I have Celiac. I only make GF baked goods if I know XX people will be there so I can have 1 slice/piece and then everyone else will clean it up. If it is going to linger, I simply make the normal full gluten version.

#3 CHIPS, of any kind. I like them all. The salt, the crunch, it is almost hypnotic for me. If I want chips, now I buy the small bags. Then I know, XXX cost me XXXc. The serving sizes that say 10 chips, 12 chips, it's all BS to me. Open bag means eat till gone!

I have a problem! But I gear my life to minimize the issues!

I had crackers (lance, cheese) after I got to work yesterday and thought, not too bad (200 cals). Then I decided to go ahead and eat the snack cakes I'd brought for dessert at lunch, because I was only taking a short lunch and wouldn't have time to eat it (right!), so another 240 calories. Plus I'd already had enough HWC to bring me up to 630 calories-by 9 am. Then I ate my lunch (200), but resisted the cupcakes on the table...went back and ate one (260?)....then, right before time to leave work I went to the snack machine and bought a milky way bar (240). So I was up to nearly 1200 before leaving work, and that was with a lot of restraint. When I got home I had some more coffee with cream (90ish)...then 5 spring rolls, most of an egg roll and a bottle of wine. Well over 2000 I think. Food is my trigger, actually. I have tried eggs and bacon in the morning, but that doesn't stop me from wanting/getting salty or sweet snacks on UDs...

Funny we are all different, if I eat a bagel, I am totally fine throughout the day, was just thinking that yesterday. I switched to cereal and things were getting out of hand!
