Rrrrrrrr! I classically binged last night. I started with a healthy snack, then another, then a questionable one, then a third and a fourth snack. The last one was a cup of ice cream. Damn. I did log it in MyFitnessPal.com this morning. I've become complacent with the modest progress I've made.

Today. Just today. Just one day, I commit to self preservation. I commit to appropriate eating. For me this means a low carb, moderate protein and higher vegetable diet with NO BINGE EATING. Just the next 24 hours.

Bob,
I've read your thread with interest and wish you well with your daily quest. I hope that you don't find this question insensitive, but are these snack foods kept in your home? Why not throw them in the trash can?


Wouldn't it be better to replace them with better alternatives? Fresh fruit. Hard cheeses. Unsalted, unoiled nuts. Crunchy vegetables like pea pods, and beans. That type of thing...
Phil

It's a good point. I don't have any snack foods in my house. None whatsoever. But if you are prone to snacking, you should only keep healthy ones around. I usually cook fresh every night, but last night I picked up a low-cal, pre-made noodle and soy meal. I was worried that I might end up wanting more so I grabbed a side of ahi tuna salad. Half way to the checkout, I turned around, put the tuna back and grabbed a side of kale salad. Ended up not eating it so I have it for tonight's dinner.

And there are certain things I won't buy for occasional use because I know I will find an excuse to use it on everything. Mayo and mayo-like condiments are an example. Hunks of cheese is another example.

Phil. Your post was not insensitive at all; it makes perfect sense.

I usually don't have those kinds of snack foods in the house. My daughters were home for the holidays, and we had them then. This past weekend I purchased some of these things for a family event, and I should have tossed them in the garbage when the event was done. As it turns out, thentwo really unhealthy items were chocolate and ice cream. The ice cream was left over from the holidays and I don't know who brought the chocolate home. I just noticed it last night.

Either way, I can only blame myself for eating it, but I don't have to set myself up by having it in the house.
