Well, if you's ask me three weeks ago I might have said something different but I too have developed a new passion for fresh fruit and a bowl of sweet crunchy fruit would be my favourite meal with the addition on a small tub of strawberry soya yogurt.
It's a great place to be and I congratulate you on your success. Keep up the good work.

Mine would have to be the Jenny O turkey. You can make that into anything and you can make it taste like what ever you want it to!

JADEBATDOG: I make "wings" with chicken breast strips. I mix ff yogurt with the hot sauce, and bread them, and bake them. You could use the Hungry Girl method, and bread them with ground up Fiber One for less calories.

Congratulations. That's a great achievement. I wish I were as strong as you. I have these insane cravings for sweet stuff, specially chocolates. and I have a tendency to finish my daughter's unfinished meal. I don't have any other weaknesses so far. Any suggestions?

French Fries would win hands down.I love those devils
The summation of all diets i have ever researched, followed, failed at... collates into one critical bit of information : French Fried potatoes are out!
The food that I am really enjoying is bread!!!! But it's not just any bread, it's delicious, whole grain bread baked in a bread store not too far from my house. What I enjoy is that I used to think I couldn't really eat bread, but this bread is different. I can tell that it truly is food, because I don't crave more after I eat a piece of it. And just a slice of it really satisfies my hunger, so I am very happy to be able to say that I really can enjoy bread now that I'm just enjoying its wholesome yummyness!
I am surrendering to the "unforced rhythms of grace."
One of my old standby's would be peach cobbler with a scoop of vanilla ice cream which I can have in moderation. Spark Recipes has a great low-cal peach cobbler recipe that is out of this world and I've learned to enjoy fat-free, sugar-free ice cream.

I think it would be the refrigerated yogurt you get in the store. But, when I get home I put it in the freezer 'cause then it takes longer to eat and it gives you something to chew on. It really two treats in one frozen not frozen. I personally love chewing ice.

Today was the first day I started craving healthy foods. I had some (healthy) home-made mac n cheese with broccoli and I found myself craving more broccoli after I was finished, similar to how I used to crave chips or chocolate.
However, my FAVORITE food ever is hot wings. I'm actually thinking I can still eat them as long as I don't eat them with ranch like I normally do and limit the amount.
Since I don't want eat at all I guess right now since its so hot,I would want cold food to help me cool off,the first thing that comes to mind is a fruit smoothie.Plus it would have to be already prepared without having to fight the blender.
God give me strength to live,love and laugh.

arugula salads. YUM. Or any salad. I should eat them every day, but I go through a "tub" of arugula on one salad, so it's not really great on the wallet.
then maybe tacos/enchiladas. (double yum!)
and maybe red mango. i can't tell if this is a new obsession, or just a novelty....
edit: oh darn! I forgot about pizza!! it still loses out to salad, but certainly deserves to be on this list!
I am on Seattle Sutton now and really like the variety of food and ease of putting together my meals, but my daily fix has to be a little bit of chocolate. Couple of Hershey's Kisses or Hugs go along way if you just let them melt and do not chew them!
When I first read this, I thought of only blueberries, I could eat them every day forever. I love them! But, after reading through some of the other replies, there are two things that I remembered I love and would eat every day if I could; ice cream; any flavor and my #1 favorite; those malted "Robin egg" candies that are around at Easter. The ones with the hard candy shell and then malt right under that....yum. I could eat a ton of those...

"To succeed you have to believe in something with such a passion that it becomes a reality. "
"In the midst of regular life, running is the touchstone that breathes adventure into my soul. "
The other day, a good friend confided in me that if she could get away with eating McDonald's french fries and chicken nuggets for every meal - with no effect - she would. Every meal. This brought our discussion to "If you could eat any food and it had no effect on your weight or health, what would your indulgence be?"
I thought about it for a long time, and eventually told her I couldn't think of anything. Truthfully, the things coming to mind were avacados, veggie stir fries, or fruit salad. FRUIT SALAD! That's it - that's my one thing.
SUCCESS: I'm not even interested in unhealthy foods any more! It feels so much better to eat well. That's my sign of success.
