Binge eating triggers...

I asked a question in a different group about what foods trigger peoples binge eating. 5 people responded and they all put peanut butter as the 1st. It would be my first as well. Does anyone on here have that same issue?
Foods I dont keep in the house because I will eat them all and then everything else....
Peanut butter
pepperoni sticks
Ice cream

I usually binge on Oreos, any sort of salty food like chips and nuts. I try not to buy these items too because I know they will be gone in a flash!

Oreos are evil

OREOS and MILK....even saying it makes my mouth water.

2nd place is cookie dough, but that doesn't make my mouth water thinking about it.

I love salty food and sweets. Oh and peanut butter.

We don't have any at home because i could eat it by the spoonfull. However, i went away for 5 weeks to take a french course in a different province and had to live in a student residence. Because cooking wasn't as practical as it is at home, i purchased peanut butter just to help me out during the busy times when i cant really prepare anything and a sandwich is more convenient. I figured it would take me 5 weeks to eat it....nope. 5 days. So disappointing. Never again.

Has anyone tried a spoonful of peanut butter dipped in Cool Whip? O. M. G.

That said, I can have peanut butter in the house...anything salty I can grab by the handful, however...dangerous.

peanut butter!!!
cauliflower least one can stuff oneself with salsa and cauliflower without too many calories. But I will eat them until my stomach hurts!

Peanut butter has never been a problem for me, but ice cream is a killer! Absolutely no way I can keep it in the house... Because it doesn't keep! More times than I'd like to remember, I've downed an entire half-gallon of Chocolate Moose Tracks in one day. Thus, here I am at PeerTrainer!

That's so weird that so many are commenting on peanut butter! They must put some hidden ingredient in there to make it so addictive!

I noticed the other day that peanut butter is a major trigger for me and I realize now why I don't even buy the stuff anymore. Unfortunately they have it in the kitchen at work and I end up having a big spoonful with graham crackers nearly everyday!

Another trigger of mine is ice cream. I cannot keep it in the house! And even if I do buy it, it is eaten within two days. So embarassing. I even sneak a couple spoonfuls during breakfast.
