My husband, son and I LOVE to cook so we are always finding new recipe's to try with whatever we find we have on hand. We are always well stocked with fruit, vegetables (mostly fresh and frozen), and different lean meat and fish. So with some basics we have a lot of fun trying new things or modifying recipes that may be a little too heavy on fat, Carbohydrates or calories to make them much healthier for us!

I eat about the same, I drink a lot more when I buy juice, crystal light and milk

I love grocery shopping, so I always end up buying stuff to stock away... But then it gets overwhelming and I go out to eat. Sigh... Vicious circle.

I don't like grocery shopping, so I like to be fully stocked. I also try to stick to the see no evil, smell no evil. If I don't shop for the bad stuff it's less likely I can over indulge in it.
I like to have very little food in my house, just what I need for my meal plans. However, my hubby who grew up hungry, wants the house to be absolutely filled with food. He even went and bought another chest type freezer recently. When I first made goal weight I had trouble with lots of food in the house. Now I've gotten used to it for the most part. Even chocolate candy, my biggest trigger food, can sit for months without me taking any.
I probably eat the same amount of food regardless but the type of food I eat may be pretty different. I eat more of the healthier food when we have an abundance of food in the house.

I don't think it really affects how much I eat.

When I buy good, healthy food, it generally does not effect my eating -- though sometimes I do have trouble with foods that it can be easy to overeat (nuts, granola, etc.), even though they are not "bad" in themselves. I try not to keep treat foods in the house in any large quantities. Although I do allow myself treats, I try to plan them -- and only buy enough to have ONE serving, and no more. It's not that I *can't* control myself, but that I don't want to have to waste energy fighting those battles in my own home.

I stock up on healthy foods when they have special sales...so my freezer and pantry are full with a healthy selection but I limit the perishables to only a few. No waste. Also...it's not overflowing with food like a buffet. If I make a batch of something...half gets frozen for later.

I am more hungry when I have little food in the house.

It's the opposite with me. Whenever my fridge is full, I go crazy. And by crazy, I mean eating the whole fridge like a pregnant woman crazy. I really have to get healthier. :(

Yes, mostly because a full fridge enables me to COOK as opposed to relying on junk/fast food. I was getting pretty lazy there for (*cough* years), not paying attention to keeping a good selection of groceries in the house - which in the end, created an endless number of opportunities to say "nothing in the house - I'll pick up pizza!" "nothing to make a sandwich with - I'll just go out for lunch!"
Do you eat more or less when you have a full fridge, freezer and cabinets? I eat way less. I get a better selection of what I really want that satisfies my palet. My new rule is to always be stocked up at all times. What about you, do you eat more or less?
