I usually keep some Macdamia nuts around here for a "treat" - if I haven't already had too many calories otherwise. I'll weigh out an ounce or even HALF an ounce to nibble on, but not every day. I'm not really nuts about nuts... but like them now and then.

when I go somewhere in the car (besides around town) I'll usually put a scant ounce in my car in case I get hungry for lunch and too much temptation.

Now if it's trail mix, that's another story, I can't stay out of that!! Especially the good kind with dried bananas, M&M's, raisins and all that stuff............

My weakness is macadamia nuts. I control myself with them as they are so expensive I can't afforf them at between $6 and $7 a jar.

Snickerdoodles are good. My weakness is also macadamia nut cookies. Love the ones from Subway. Have to stay away from those!

I pick at those cheddar flavored pretzel pieces until they are gone. I can eat an entire bag in a day.

Lately my weakness has been rice cakes with peanut butter and jelly on them. I have to stop that. Even though the peanut butter is healthy, too much of it along with the jelly is devastating to my calories and my carbs.

I can't keep any crackers, chips, cookies, marshmallows, desserts of any kind or trail mix around the house... Those are what comes to mind at the moment, I'm sue there are more. The only cracker type thing I have here are some of the AkMak crackers - they're good enough, and will work if I "really need" a cracker, but not good enough that I'll sit down with a box of them like I could saltines or Ritz crackers. And trail mix - forget that. If it's here, I'll pick at it until it's gone............

Most people have something they have trouble resisting. For me it's chips and crackers and I do best when I am not around them.

I love the "wash everything before you put it in your mouth" I'm going to try and apply that to everything I eat.


On a sad note. The monster got me. I didn't buy the big giant oh so good cookie from the coffee cart, but I did cave. I just couldn't seem to get my mind away from it. i caved and got a couple of smaller less expensive cookies from the cafeteria. And then comes the guilt......

Michele: Could you please tell us more about the Newton's cookies, ie, what flavor(s), nutrtional information, and where we can buy them.

The cookie monster gets me a LOT. But not just any cookie. There's a place that makes oatmeal raisin cookies not far from where I work. They are well worth the $12. They are my favorite. I wish that I could find an alternative. I've decided to try to replace my urge for the cookie with a piece of fruit. I've kicked the candy habit, and don't really eat any other sweets so fruit tastes very sweet to me now. I just don't think I would be able to beat the cookie habit for good, so an alternative would be a nice change.

Smart Carber.

If hunger is not the problem, then eating is not the solution.

I can picture a wet, batter dough cookie. Yet, if you would tell a small child to wash that cookie before you eat. That cookie would have soap and water on it before rinsing.
One reason there are low carb receipes for cookies, brownies and muffins.

I like that idea of washing the cookies LOL! My daughter and grandkids live with me and granddaughter just brought home a thing from school yesterday where they are supposed to sell buckets of cookie dough as a fundraiser for the school.

You know, years ago a W.W. leader told us, "Eat whatever you want, just be sure and wash it real good first" - well - you know what washing would do to a cookie, cake or things like that. She had a point!! Now, I pretend in my mind that they are moldy - it does work for me usually.

The cookie monster got ahold of me at work again today. If I could keep away from the giant cookies, I'd save 1800 cal/week and $6. What is this horrible control is has over me?
