What food can you NOT have in the house?

Mine is flour tortillas. I will speed demon through them. I finally just realized I couldn't buy it. Now, I am seeing this trend with other foods. CHEESE, for instance. I just realized tonight I am better off without it...

What can you not keep in reach?

soda! If I must have one - I have to drive to the gas station and pay the buck-whatever for 1 and 1 is all I can buy, and I must pay cash - no slipping it on the card (this helps for some reason). I'm a terrible soda fiend, but it's ruinous! I can ignore chips, ice cream, chocolate, etc, but not soda.

Dorito's and Cheez-its (especially flavors other than regular cheese). They kill me. I can plow through a box easily in one night and then still crave more over the next several days. I think because I recognize it as one of the foods that have a hold on me that I end up forbidding the stuff from the house and then when it does get brought in (via boyfriend) I go nuts over it like I'll never have it again. Perhaps if I could see them as foods to limit to small occasional servings I could have a portion once in a while and not go crazy over it. But I don't know how to do that!!!

10:18 - I'm going on 3 years trying to figure out how to live with Cheezits in the house! My husband always liked Cheese Nips and I was never a fan, but then he went and changed to Cheez Its - yikes! Especially if it's a light and flaky batch - oh man, I go nuts and will go back again and again for that one little harmless handful. It's like a little taste explosion - yummmmmm.

Pizza. Oh man I love pizza. The real gooey cheesy stuff with every topping you can think of.
But I don't have it in the house so I make tortilla pizzas. It is a good second.
Then there's nuts. I love nuts. Almost any kind.
I don't keep unhealthy foods in the house so I don't have to worry about it. But occasionally a friend will bring a box of groceries over and put all kinds of goodies in there and I don't have trouble with any of it but the nuts.

regular fritos

man - I LOVE these.... and they are SO bad for you. if you put one on a piece of paper it soaks up the grease and you can see how fatty they really are. my son has a bag in the kitchen - I won't open it because its his but I just hope he doesn't open it around me!

Apparently cookies. I never knew I was a fiend until I was baking cookies last night for a friend. It started with just a little piece of the dough, and then turned into a four or five cookie count splurge. And now talking about it is really making me want another one... damn it.
