Homemade cookies and cake! I could normally eat a whole cake pan if I make a cake.

The foods or more like junk that I have found I can't even have a taste of because it sets off major binges for me are: Jelly Beans - have yet to meet a jelly bean that I hate lol Cake- I love frosting....its like a drug to me Ice cream - I always say I will eat just a small portion next thing I know I have had seconds or more. kettle style popcorn-- especially the ones made at local fairs... oh it is dangerous, just one bite is NOT enough.

Flavored Potato chips, and anything containing more than 6 grams of refined sugar. It just makes me crave sugary foods and simple carbs like crazy a few hours later.
I agree with whoever said below that nutella is super hard to eat just one serving of. I made homemade vegan nutella over the weekend, and it's not as amazing as the real stuff, but it does have plenty of real nuts and cocoa in it. Am thinking it would make a yummy sauce tp dip strawberries in.
My off limit danger foods are: -Homemade chocolate chip cookies -Lays plain potato chips -Tostitos Hint of Lime tortilla chips -Nutella -Fast food french fries
If I eat these things, I go absolutely crazy, and cannot resist binging. I allow myself to eat pretty much anything in moderation, but these foods are basically off limits, because they make me lose control.

Chips of any kind - I'm drawn to salty & savory! I have noticed that since i'm not eating chips & salty snacks much, I now enjoy sweets w/in control. But since they've never been by triggers - it's all working out quite nicely!

Sugar. If i eat added sugars before 8 pm (natural sugar from fruit doesn't count) i get the munchies like crazy a few hours later. And not just for more sugar, but i get mad cravings for salty snacks as well, and simple carbs, anything to get me that blood sugar rush that i got from sugar.
Yesterday my downfall was a blueberry bagel with lowfat cream cheese from dunkin donuts. I never eat there, but i was starving after work and 1/4 cup of cashews wasn't going to tide me over from 4:00 til 7:30 when i would be home from yoga. When i got home, i stuffed myself with mostly healthy foods and a few unhealthy as well.
I think it's because of my activity levels earlier in the week (have burned about 2000 calories) and the fact that i didn't eat dinner til 9 pm the previous 3 nights, because i had to work late.

Potato chips... I can easily eat an entire bag to myself in one sitting and still want more :(
I also really, really love pizza and used to eat it waaaaay too often, and am finding it kind of hard to cut back.

Mine would be pizza, cake, pasta salad, chocolate with caramel or toffee.
Only specific types and preparations are triggers, though. Like the cake has to be from the box with frosting from the tub. The pasta salad has to be made with an Italian vinaigrette type dressing. Cakes from a bakery/store are nauseating and pasta salads made with mayo don't interest me in the least. And the cake needs to be yellow or chocolate... not white or red velvet or whatever.
These are cases where being picky is good

THe worse for me is chocolate... anything really.. candy bars, cookies, cakes, chocolate pie... It's awful.. I'm trying hard and just thinking: "nothing tastes as good as being thin feels" to help me get through it
Ice cream... But avoid that by keeping it out of the house.
But my biggest problem is delicious homemade chocolate chip cookies. My mom makes the most amazing cookies ever. She has perfected the recipe over the years- and actually has two different recipes depending on whether she wants to make soft or cookies. She makes half of the batches with a ton of extra chips, because that's how my brothers and I like them- practically half chocolate.
Cheese. Without a doubt. Cheddar, brie, mozarella, camembert, stilton, cambazola...I could go on...

I was eating it for protein until I started tracking my nutrition and realized how much fat is loaded into it. Before I knew it, I ate all my fat for the day at breakfast and had to figure out how to get protein and carbs without eating anymore fat.
This is a close call between movie popcorn (complete with butter-flavored topping!) and chips (potato chips, corn chips and dip, any kind!). Whenever I go to the movies, I eat an entire LARGE tub of popcorn and have been known to go back for free refills...

While it's not necessarily a food , I'm pretty sure that diet pop makes me want to eat more. Ever since I was a little kid I've been pretty thirsty, but when I was younger I usually drank water, lots of it, but when I was diagnosed with type 2 diabetes about twelve years ago I started to drink diet pop to get more of a sweet flavor and I think that fires up my appetite. I've been really working on ditching the diet pop and drinking more water and milk, it already seems to be helping.

Brats! I grew up near Johnsonville, and so there is nothing like a double brat on a hard roll for me. However, now days, a brat patti is fine...but I still gotta hold myself back from time to time. Oh ya, and the homemade old fashioned fudge at Christmas time!

I second the "mashed potatoes" comment, with ice cream coming in a close second.
I joked with a friend that if there was a way to make mashed potato ice cream, I would have some serious issues.
The good news is I haven't had a "danger food" for the 2+ weeks I've been really focused on eating right. Interesting...

Mostly white carb products:
Baked treats (cakes, muffins, doughnuts) White bread products White rice Mashed potatoes
Oh, and Chinese food... damn, just the smell and I want a pile and a shovel and stand back. Chinese buffets were one of the things that really did me in... I'm still too early in my diabetes/weight management program to chance getting take out.

my own baking: Today I've eaten 3 1/2 sweet muffins/brownies and 3 savoury muffins, totalling 683 calories. But they do fill me up and stop me compulsive eating. I need to cut the raisins or nuts out of the sweet muffins.

Cookies... especially my own homemade oatmeal chocolate chip ones. I made them last week to take to a bbq over the weekend and I could not stop eating them, and pretty much made myself sick from eating the dough while making them! I was so glad once I took them out of the house.
my favorite food and my achilles heel food: CAKE :*(

I've discovered that though I can show great discipline with portion control, choosing healthy meals at restaurants, or requesting only half meals on the plate and half in a to-go container for indulgent meals, the one thing I CANNOT control myself around, even if I weigh out each single serving, and watch the categories tick up, and then over, my specified ranges, is Aged White Cheddar flavored Popcorn. I've been known to eat MULTIPLE family sized bags in a day! So now I just try not to even buy them. It's tough though, if they're on sale and I'm having a bad day.
