I want a snickers for breakfast. Stop me now.

I'm starting to think that it wouldn't even be that bad.

Stay strong! Don't do it! Its not worth the guilty feeling you will have afterwards.
My mother dropped off some homemade Chocolate Chip cookies for my kids and this morning, oh how I wanted one. I didn't cave in and now I feel empowered.

Imagine how much you will regret it after you swallow that last bite! and how much you will kick youself when your jeans dont fit just right...

drink a lot of water... you may still crave it but you'll be too full to eat it!!

Uh, I have a Snickers Marathon bar for breakfast nearly every day. I like the Low Carb Chocolate Fudge Brownie flavor, and I buy them in my local grocery store. In my store, they are in the energy bar section. Check out this link:

Well - out of curiosity what would you eat instead?

I would try drinking at least 16oz of water first and if that doesnt' work and you still crave it, then have it. It has 280 calories - so just keep track of the rest of you calories for the day. And don't make it a habit to have one everyday. Or maybe you just need a bite of it to fulfill your craving. Then thwo the rest in the trash can, so you can't get it later when it is just sitting around.

Yeah, why not have the Snickers marathon bar?

I don't think a Snickers would be such a bad breakfast, on occasion. It would be a bad additon to breakfast, but as a replacement, it has some carbs, fats, and proteins (in the peanuts), and could be fairly satisfying. A 280 calorie breakfast sounds about right to me (I typically aim for 300 cals in my breakfast, 500 in lunch, and 500 in dinner, and total 1300 cals a day).

I agree with the above poster - I do occasionally find myself at the mercy of the vending machine or cafeteria at breakfast and a snickers is a lot better than a bagel w/cream cheese. So once in awhile, if I have to rush out the house without breakfast, that's exactly what I eat. It's pretty satisfying and it doesn't ruin my day calorie-wise. It's more sugar and fat than I generally eat at breakfast and it's not as filling as my regular breakfast, but it's better than most of the cafeteria food at work. Thus depending on what your alternatives were I can't really say whether you should have gone for it or not....

I didn't have one. I did have lots of protein though (eggs, turkey sausage). It was still good and now I don't feel a craving.
