What's your nemesis?

Mine is, and always has been, crisps! I am literally salivating at the thought of eating them. I am not going to buy any for myself because one packet is never enough. I could quite easily eat 10 packets of French Fries and then work past the ulcers in my mouth, and eat a few more........! I will buy just enough packets for hubby's bait, and then I might try him on some baked ones because his waist size shocked him yesterday so he might be up for change...xx

Biscuits !!!!!

Cheese and Onion OMG how I miss them but I have an odd packet of French fries or Quavers every now and again. I also liike the vegetable crisps I must admit though watch how crisps are made and it may put you off.

I now change the crisps for unsalted nuts.

I once read a book called 'You can be thin', twas very good and I did lose weight. The author said to burn a crisp with a lighter or match and that the smell would put you off them forever. Never did that then, but might this time...xx

Snap! First day back at work and piles of chocolate and cakes near me. Totally not fussed. But do not put savoury snacks near me I will fight you for them and I WILL WIN! Strangely I can have packets of them in the house and if they are closed again, fine, but once opened I will eat them all.... Definitely my weakness.

Wine if I am visiting with friends. It was always chocolate but I don't use sugar anymore and now chocolates are much too sweet.

Hi. I love crisps too and cheese! I find it better not to buy any. Can you get your hubby to not eat them or get him to buy his own when he is out. Give him a non food reward!

Nothing IF it's not in the house...however bring in a freshly baked loaf of crusty delicious cereal bread and that and a quarter pound of butter will be on my hips in no time.

Toast and homemade Seville marmalade.

yes I would probably walk over hot coals for it.

Crips - salt and vinegar.

yes I would probably sit in bath tub filled with iced water.

That's my top two but oddly enough I wouldn't eat them together.

PS can't recall EVER just eating one biscuit unless of course it's the last one in the house.

Definitely biscuits for me. 1 is not enough, 2 makes you want more but once you hit 3 it is a slippery slope to eating the rest of the packet. I am ok if the biscuit packets are not opened but once opened I really struggle. Not been counting calories over Christmas and it really throws me. As soon as I don't have a number to stick to I lose the plot!

Crisps , crunchy peanut butter and cheese.

I've never known anybody to eat just one biscuit either. But they aren't my nemesis. Mine is wine without a shadow of a doubt but then once the wine's opened, out come the crisps or nuts....or both. Damn!!

Guess the only way out for me is have it once a week. I'm the type if you tell me I can't have something, it'll make me want it more.

Chocolate & Dr Pepper. Love both. Oh & Costa coffee paninis & toasties.

Savoury. Meat.... But I can eat crisps and chocolate quite effectively too!

Have you tried skinny popcorn? 78 cals a pack.

Not a big fan of popcorn - sticks in me teeth, but thanks for the post. For me, nothing compares to crisps, so rather than eating something similar and still craving them, I'd rather do without...xx

Cheese for me. Love it so much and there is virtually no type I won't eat ( I draw the line at stinking bishop). Gruyere, blue Stilton, Camembert, cheddar, Brie, blacksticks blue.... the list and temptation is endless. I doubt I'll never get osteoporosis!!
