Giving up food I love
Cupcake

During the course of getting to my goal weight I discovered that there were a few foods in particular that I couldn't seem to resist or eat in a controlled way, potato chips in particular. So I started thinking that in order to maintain my weight loss I should probably resign myself to not ever having these foods again Anyone else tried doing this? Is it even possible to give up a food you love completely?

I'm a firm believer that cutting out something you love entirely will only make you want it more. I once tried cutting out my food nemesis: chocolate cake. I lasted about three weeks before I started dreaming about it. Then, I had a horrible day at work, got a flat tire on my way home, and went straight to the grocery store, bought a cake and went home and ate half of it in one sitting. I felt like such a failure that I finished it off the next day. Now I allow myself one slice a week. I never buy a full cake, just a slice. That way there's no temptation to go nuts. Maybe instead of buying a big bag of chips you could buy one of those really small ones. Have it no more than once a week and that way you get to enjoy yourself without the guilt or the extra fat!

I quit drinking soda cold turkey and it was one of the best decisions I've ever made. It was also one of the most difficult things I've done too Even though I only drank diet soda it made me feel really bloated and it always made me crave sweet things...and I'm talking out of control cravings. Now that I've stopped drinking soda, and avoiding all artificial sweetners in general, I feel better and the cravings have gone. I still miss it, but now that I literally got it out of my system I know that it was the right thing to do and it's made maintaining my weight so much easier.

I made a rule that I would never say never when it came to different foods. I tell myself I can eat anything but I trick myself by always telling myself I can have it at some date in the future. So, for example, if I'm craving candy on a Monday, I just tell myself that I can have some on Sunday if I still want it. But, by then, after eating healthy all week, I don't usually want it anymore
