    What is your favorite food, the one that you just can't give up!

    I was just reading another thread and was wondering for us clyde and athenas, what is your favorite dish that, healthy or not, you just need to eat some? I really like so many foods that why I'm a Clyde but if I am ordering sushi I always order more than I need and I will do the 11 pm sushi run. Fatty tuna is my absolute favorite. Or when I am touring, if I stop at a cafe that has biscuits and gravy, I'm eating.
    I have friends that had to have a Snickers every day or a bag of corn chips or a 6-pack of beer.

    So what are your favorites?

    My largest probelm is Draft beer at a bar, I honestly only ever have 2 or 3 but after two or three beers, you're that ever so pleasant buzz that makes bar food sound so darn good.

    Whenever I am south of the Mason-Dixon line, I try to have crab at least once a day. (We Northerners can't do crab properly.)

    • Good Beer
    • Pizza
    • Ice Cream


    Those are my weaknesses. I have given up on chips, soda, and most fast food.

    Brisket, pork shoulder, or pretty much anything I can stick in my smoker will be my end.

    Pizza is my absolute weakness. A good cut of steak or a nicely smoked rack of ribs or a brisket will usually do me in too.

    Grilled chicken I could live off the stuff if I didnt like a little variety

    Garden Herb Triscuits with pepper jack cheese is also a weakness for me...

    There is nothing I really go out of my way for or couldn't just give up. The chicken is healthy for me, so there is no reason to give that up!

    So lets get the usual suspects out of the way first...
    Deep Dish Pizza - Gave it up for whole grain, thin crust pizza. Yes, that would be cardboard!
    Guinness - Gave up all beer completely
    Coke - Is not it for me any more

    Now the one meal I simply refuse to give up...
    Chicken Fried Steak, with homemade lumpy mashed potatoes, creamy country gravy on everything, hot buttered corn on the cob, and a salad with a big, ice cold glass of milk.

    Oh man! I think I'm gonna cry.

    Mountain Dew.
    I know it's not technical a food, but it should be it's own food group. I've really cut back and noticed a weight improvement. I only allow myself 1 can / day during the work week. My biggest struggle is the weekend when I'm at restaurants with free refills.

    Chips and salsa. Chips were invented to transport salsa to my belly. And I love them so. I'm trying to give them up, but there's a bag on top of the fridge now and there's salsa in the fridge. (sob) (Oh yeah, I work from home 75% of the time, which is dangerous)

    Beer. MMMMM beer. And if one is good, 2 is better. Or 3. or 4. This is a problem if the fridge is full and I'm not driving anywhere. I've largely given beer up as of a month ago, wish me luck. Haven't had a drop on my last two business trips.

    Food in general. By the time we get dinner on the table, I'm starvin' Marvin, eat too fast and then have seconds. Obviously the workaround there is drink plenty of water before dinner, eat slower and wait before seconds.

    Spaghetti and Pizza are fantastico - love them both. I rarely eat pizza anymore because it's just to easy to gobble down way too many slices.

    I travel about 25% of the time, which really complicates things... it's INCREDIBLY hard to find nutritious and calorically adequate food in restaurants so lately, I've been dinnering at subway at least half the time. I read an interesting article in USA Today about a month ago that identified a bunch of restaurant meals where the calories and fat content for a single entree were on the order of 2000 calories and over 100 grams of fat. That's insane! It's also hard to find time to work out because I work my tail off when I'm on the road... from dawn till about midnight. Oh well.

    I'm on a kick to keep my weight down. You know what I miss? Things that are salty and crunchy. Pretzels. Potato Chips. Crackers. OMG.

    you have to allow yourself some but limit the portion. use little monkey bowls or sandwich bags to measure the portion. you need to eat food you like and like the food you eat. its not a diet - its a lifestyle so gear up for the rest of your life - be happy. try to eat regular m,eals and healthy snacks so that when you get the urge to eat extra there isn't room for it. STAY OUT OF THE KITCHEN!

    I practice the "Mark Twain" diet: eat whatever you want, and let the food fight it out on the inside.

    I like pizza, Subway, cheeseburgers, various preparations of potatoes, and, yes, vegetables. I need foods that 'stick to the ribs', which is my main problem with things like grilled chicken, baked fish, etc. I like that stuff, too, just prefer not to have the belly growling again 90 minutes later.

    Lose weight? When the weather cooperates with me getting my miles in (I ride MTB everywhere, frequently -- before this spring -- "milking" my commutes for more miles), then my portions reduce pretty much automatically.

    I gave in again. I was riding my bike home in this heat today, and a new ice cream stand opened up right on my route. I saw it yesterday, but didn't have cash. I had the cash today.

    Another "food" I just can't do without -- POPCORN --not that microwave in a bag crap either. Put a pan on the stove, table spoon of oil, butter, butter, salt, butter. Oh did I mention...BUTTER! Gotta eat it all the way down to the burnt, half popped kernels. I can feel my arteries clogging as I type.

    Favourite food? Yeesh, I could list here all day. I'll try and condense it:

    - Indian food, in particular a little restaurant downtown called "Debu Saha's". He is a genius!
    - ice cream. I limit the ice cream to 1 carton a month. Typically I like chocolate mint or a tasty french vanilla.
    - mexican mocha! This is every day or else terrible things happen to the people around me. I used to visit Starbucks and cough up $5 a day for one of their mocha's but I know make it at home for under $1. I use Nestles' Abuelita hot chocolate tabs, 1% milk, 3 teaspoons of instant coffee (I love coffee but anything I make could double as paint stripper). Heat it up then a few moments in the blender. Lovely stuff. No where near as sickeningly sweet as Starbucks' mocha -- it's like chewing sugar.
    - white bread. I like whole wheat, multi grain breads. They are tasty but not as wonderful as freshly baked white bread. I bake a couple of loaves of white a week as well as naan and like it much more than store bought. Cheaper too.
    - potatoes. Mashed, roasted, oven fried, simmered in tomatoes, or boiled. I limit potatoes to once a week but would never eliminate it.
    - pizza. I make it once a week and would seriously miss it.

    I figure my best course of action is to enjoy my favourite foods but just not immense piles of them. I also try and make it myself to avoid crummy ingredients (although I admit sometimes the crummy ingredients are the best part).
