Fast Food Addiction

Recommended Posts

Thank you for all of the wonderful advice ladies, I need to start having more self control, and holding out on my cravings, it is just so hard. I have pasted pictures of models wearing wedding dresses all over my house for some motivation, but sometimes the cravings get the best of me.

It is tough!

I love creamy coffee drinks.... cappuccino's...mocha latte's... (300+ calories) yikes!!!

 

Cutting them out totally was a HUGE struggle...

Ive recently discovered the Special K Mocha cereal bars...only 90 calories and they taste super yummy so when Im really craving that chocolate/coffee taste they are fantastic!! Love them!!!

My weaknesses are pizza and chips. I try not to buy them but on days that FI & I are working long hours or doing house remodeling all day it's so easy to order that pizza. I found that packing definitely helps so I don't buy the junk but it's so hard.

My biggest weakness is Mexican food. I try to make it for myself at home with grilled onions, peppers, and mushrooms in quesadillas instead of all of the greasy stuff from the restaurants or at Taco Bell. Not quite the same, but it is still delicious!

as crazy as it sounds, after the "withdrawl" phase the cravings seem to be less often.

 

i've tried replacing fast food burgers & fries with homemade burgers and mccain low fat superfries (baked) to control some of the damage. worked so far.

 

but sometimes those darn TV commercials.....

It has to be lots of self control. scheduling your time better to pre-prepare meals so that you aren't stuck in a last minute fast food drive thru situation.

It takes time. Old habits die hard but you can kill them. after a while you wont crave it anymore. sometimes you may not even be able to look or smell at another fast food menu.

I used to eat FF 3x's a day for all my meals. gained over 30lbs. But then my doctor gave me my triglyceride levels and weight. that was an eye opener. so was that movie Super Size Me. yikes!

But now we pre prepare our meals, we eat fresh foods. Of course we still go out to dinner but no more mashed potatoes n fries, I opt for grilled veggies and water with lemon.

again, lots of self control. but YOU CAN DO IT!!!!!!!!!!!!

Well things have been going well, I have been doing good. FI brought home Wendy's last night, I could have killed him. But the good thing is is that it has been almost two weeks since I have eaten any fast food, and when I tried to eat the Wendy's, it grossed me out too much. Plus, I didn't want to undo all of the work that I have done in the last two weeks, so I took it and threw it in the garbage and told him not to bring that crap home anymore!!
