Sandy Love (8),

How can sushi be a guilty pleasure?

High in protein; low in fat/carbs!

Sounds like a healthy pleasure to me! :-|

I presume, however, that you're not eating it with the aforementioned chocolate! emoticon

My favorite treats taste much, much better without guilt, so I don't give in to the whim to have them. Instead, I plan to have them in controlled amounts on preplanned days; then it's all pleasure and no guilt.

I don't feel guilty about it, but I'm not interested in giving up my hazelnut coffee creamer (I have switched to a brand that doesn't contain HFCS or partially hydrongenated anything), diet coke, or wine.

Baseball season starts in 2 weeks. I have season Reds tickets and will occasionally have a hot dog and a beer at a game.

I'm with Dragon. No guilt, no shame, I eat it all - just not all at once!

I don't really have guilty pleasures. Because I don't have a"diet" mentality, I am allowed anything I like; I just have to track it. These days, my tastes have changed significantly so a lot of my former triggers just don't appeal to me anymore, but realistically? If I want something, I have it.

I do have to watch some foods that are majorly triggery. Pizza Hut pizza leaves me unsatisfied and begging for more.

But I enjoy everything, and I refuse to feel guilty about the foods I eat. :)

I can usually over-do it on nuts if I don't measure/weigh.
I rarely indulge in cheese any longer, partly because of calories; partly because of sodium.

However, I'm not sure "guilty" would describe my response to my indulgences.
Perhaps a bit of regret for having chosen this over that; but as long as I give myself permission to include it in my menu; then guilt doesn't enter into the equation.

I also indulge in a square of intense dark chocolate from time to time.

cereal. and not just healthy cereal i like captain crunch...lucky charms...pure junk, i know.

i try to make sure it fits into my calorie range on the days i eat it. (but that isn't always the case.) With some processed foods, as i have cut down on eating them, i don't like them as much. but that isn't the case with cereal.

New guilty pleasure which I hadn't had in over 2 years: herring tidbits. Caloricly expensive but darn worth it! emoticon

Hawaiian Rolls!!! Mmm it's only 100 calories but I'm hardly ever satisfied with just one.

All my guilty pleausres I enjoy, a roll for dinner from time to time,half and half in my coffee, english muffin for breakfast each day, all these things are counted into my daily calorie range and portion controlled, so I still can eat what I want as long as I do it in moderation and make sure I dont go over on my calories for the day.

Just two notes on guilty pleasures.

I too had trouble controlling my "use" emoticon of peanut butter and relatively low-calorie cold cereal until I got a kitchen scale.

Now when I take cereal or use PB, I weigh it out first, and then put the "ingredients" away.

In the case of PB, the other key point was finding 35 calorie bread (either whole wheat or oatmeal). I put two slices on a paper plate on the scale, then turn it on. It reads zero. I then smear as little 9 grams of PB on one slice, and that makes a sandwich. I then put all the fixings away, and enjoy my snack

Quite a good treat.

Comment: harder to stop eating the cereal than the PB sandwich, and the PB sandwich is generally more satisfying.

Except when I need a good dose of crunch. Then nothing works better than spoon-size shredded wheat w/o milk.

Cold cereal (especially the 'healthy' ones - Cornflakes, Fruit & Fibre, Shredded Wheat etc). I cannot stop at just one bowl. Once a box is open, it's gone within the day! I've had to stop buying them.

This will be the companion list to the secret success foods.

What foods do you eat that you shouldn't that either badly impact your calorie budget, ruling out other more nutritionally sound choices,or that periodically or chronically cause you to go over.

In my own case, this would be Coffeemate in my coffee (I'm lactose intolerant), and much to my own surprise, I've learned to drink coffee black. Last two power failures, however, I did have half and half at Panera twice each, but I was desperate for somerthing that was hot and tasted good. (I can always fool myself.)

Come on, 'fess up!

P.S. Please be specific!
