I've read a lot about how important it is to figure out what your trigger foods are and then avoid them. After the past two weeks having one day out of the week be a total self loathefest (I just totally made up that word), I've got a little insight into my trigger foods and I can't tell you I'm surprised (because of what they are) or happy (because I need to avoid them for a while).
Sweets and Pasta. When I have either I just want to have more. And more. And more. And more. I'm not past that yet and I know it'll be a while before I am. The only way I'm safe around these foods is if I make ONE portion and there are no more available. If there is leftover pasta, I will eat it (even if it's cold). If there are leftover brownies, I will eat them. Leftover cake? I'll eat it. I'm not at that "self control" place yet.
I know I'll get there but at least I've got the foresight to know that that's just not where I am yet.
Do you have foods that trigger you to binge?
