Nothing is forbidden only the quantity is limited

everything's okay to taste, sometimes even to have a serving. I don't want tot feel deprived so I allow myself to have something if I truly feel the calories are worth it.

I tend to stick to the healthy foods most of the time.

My number food to avoid is ice cream. I simply can't have just one serving.

I don't really consider anything to be forbidden. When I deny myself foods I like it sets me up for eating too much of it at a later date so I eat everything I want but I'm very careful about quantity and frequency. that's where the nutrition tracker comes in handy.

I think anything deep fried is a forbidden food for me. So unhealthy.

I have better results when I stay away from the white foods like sugar, flour, rice and potatoes.

Other than chemicals & preservatives I'm allergic to, there's nothing officially banished...but I haven't indulged my love for Indian food because fitting in my favorite Indian meal requires too much juggling to make it fit and it's so high in calories the super-tiny portions would leave me starving. I'm sure I'll figure it out, though, because I love the stuff.

I FIND THIS SO TRUE. NO FOOD SHOULD BE FORBIDDEN. IF YOU HAVE A LIST OF THINGS YOU CAN / SHOULD NEVER EAT THOSE ARE THE THE THINGS YOU ARE GOING TO WANT / CRAVE THE MOST. WHEN YOU DON'T ALLOW 4 AN OCCASIONAL TREAT U TEND TO GO OVERBOARD WHEN YOU DO GIVE IN.
WHY PUNISH YOURSELF. WE DO THAT ENOUGH ANYWAY. WE ARE TRYING TO LEARN A HEALTHY LIFESTYLE, NOT PUNISHING OURSELVES 4 NOT BN PERFECT.

I have gastroparesis; because of that, I can longer eat raw veggies, lettuce, beans, broccoli, berries, or any raw fruit except for bananas. I'm basically on a low fat/low fiber diet.

No food is forbidden! I am eating in my ranges (usually) and that in turn make me select better foods. Because I pick better food there are some foods I don't find worth the calories and do avoid but it's not because they are *forbidden* it's all about choice!

I avoid fast food, fried foods, and anything with added sugar or hydrogenated oils.

I don't have any forbidden food per se, but I don't eat fast food anymore at all. I don't eat meat anymore, but I used to love McDonald's, especially their fries. But now that I know they're made with genetically modified potatoes, the craving is magically gone!

My homemade baked mac and cheese with 5 cheeses and topped with fried butter soaked bread crumbs. Divine but I fear calculating the calories.

I now make one serving of whole wheat elbows, use low fat cheese, and top with crushed whole wheat crackers. Not the same by any stretch of the imagination, but it eliminates the craving for under 400 calories.

If it's forbidden, I'll binge on it when I give in... everything in moderation and track the calories...

One thing I completely gave up is full calorie soda. I don't miss it at all, which is awesome!! I want to have calories for food, not drink.

Just like others have said, no food for me is forbidden.

That being said, I do avoid fast food, don't eat white bread often, try to avoid fried foods, no whole milk or cheese, etc.

My digestive system pays the price when I do eat them.

i guess I haven't "forbidden" anything, there are foods that I no longer eat, but mostly that is because I eat healthier and feel better when I do not eat them. No deep fried foods, no greasy stuff. Have never been much of a drinker or bread eater (unless it is fresh baked!). I do try to limit my trigger foods, such as peanut M&M's to a time when the amount I can have is limited i.e. I no longer buy the big bags of them LOL there is a candy machine near my office with peanut M&M's, so I make sure that I do not have the quarters to feed it.
I plan better so that when there is a birthday party and I want to eat cake and ice cream, I have the calories. However, I also find that if I am going to - - - waste - - - - my calories on such a small serving it had better be darn good. If I don't think it is worth the calories, will leave it unfinished.

I haven't banned anything. I just make sure that if I want to eat a treat or have a special event, like a holiday or family gathering, that I have plan for the foods.

I haven't really forbidden anything this time around. However, I've been focusing on trying to reach my nutrition goals each day and that has sort of naturally eliminated many things and to be honest after only 10 days, I don't crave like I used to. It's pretty awesome. I have a lot of hope.

I do think if you believe it's a dangerous food for you, then why not just avoid it and don't bring it in the house - problem solved. I'm kinda lucky, my biggest weakness is ice cream. When it does find it's way home, I have nothing to worry about because my 3 kids and their friends make it disappear quick. It's like a miracle for my waistline:)

I don't have any foods that are forbidden, but I've been avoiding fast food and feel much healthier as a result.

Pizza from a fast food joint! It will not be gone forever, but I simply can't seem to stop, and it isn't worth it right now. The funny part is....my family still brings it into the house, and smelling it isn't a problem. It's the first bite that causes trouble! With no bites, I am actually good. I am a believer in "everything in moderation", but I am in a suspended mode of moderation right now. Somewhere in my future is a moderation level, but not while I am so focused. :) Have a great day!

I don't forbid myself anything. I just budget it into my calorie count. Depriving myself just makes me want it more.

My forbidden foods are deep fried foods. I may take a bite if someone else has it but I wouldn't buy it out or fix it myself.

While I eat almost everything I used to eat, there a few foods I have avoided completely the last eight months. Full fat ice cream and liverwurst. What foods,if any, have you banished from your diet?
