Pop. I can stay away from coke no problem, but I REALLY like ginger ale.

French fries or fried mozzarella sticks.

I haven't given up any food. If I tell myself something is off limits. Then it becomes the most desired item and all I want. So I use moderation, instead. I am having pizza this afternoon for lunch.

Honestly I tell myself I won't give up anything,(although no pop or liquid calories for the most part) because soon as I do I automatically want that food because I "can't" have it. It a total mind game for me. That being said I do stay within my calories daily(watch my sugar) and am eating a very clean diet right now. And the more I do the less I want the "bad" stuff, and feel fantastic. I really focus on my protein since I have a hard time hitting that but I find I am more satisfied. Everything in moderation! Happy Sparking.

Bacon cheese fries at restaurants. They are so tempting, tasty, and terrible for my health.

I haven't given up anything...it makes life so much easier!! I have cut back on the amount of ice cream, fast food (nearly never now), chocolate, etc.. that I eat now.

Nutella (no way I can just limit myself, it's a trigger food) and snacking while bored.

You don't have to give up any food not even sugar just have to limit your intake. Plus since sugar is a fast acting carb if i cheat with sugar i do it right before i go to gym for my cardio session knowing that i will be burning it off. But to answer your question mountain dew was the hardest thing to give up lol no it's not a food but still :) but food wise I would say mac and cheese. Most things like pizza, pasta, cheesesteaks etc I can make them very healthy and tasty and get my fix for the craving

Hands down: SUGAR.

I used to love doughnuts, cookies, sugar cereals and pastries. I still allow myself to have them, on occasion, but honestly, since I've been eating healthier, I find myself craving junk food much less. When I do eat it, it doesn't taste the amazing way that I remember it tasting.

For pizza - I recommend finding a healthier crust (whole grain if possible!) or even trying out that cauliflower crust recipe (not sure if you've heard about it!), you can use healthier cheese and load up on the veggies to make it a great dinner option :) I'm from NY originally, so I, too, love my pizza!

My problem was (and is) sticking to portions and not going back for seconds. Still trying to get portion sizes to stick in my mind. Keep at it and it gets easier though!

what was the hardest food, drink, or habit for you to give up?

i'm just starting and having a SUPER hard time giving up pizza. i used to have 3 slices about 4-5 times a week. i also am trying to give up bored-eating which isn't as hard since i've been so busy exercising!
