I never did answer the original question!!
Yes, I have a major "dirty" food that I really struggle against. I never have this item in my house and I never stop at a joint that has them. But my sweet pastor always stops by Joe's Donuts on his way to church every Sunday so we can have this evil treat sitting on the table around which we sit to do our Bible study. He thoughtfully cuts each donut into 4 or 5 small portions so that by the time Sunday school is over it's hard to know if I've had 2 or 3...or was that 4 of those tasty, yucky bits. I have had Sundays where I didn't take any at all and I felt really good about myself but then another Sunday comes along and...there goes my hand; right into that box!

Wonder how I'll do tomorrow...

Hospitals are terrific for traumatic care; for acute care. They do a really, really good job in saving lives when it’s a sudden bleeding emergency. But in terms of chronic care, they’re terrible; (that is) in terms of the illnesses that most people have, endure, that cost the most money, that last the longest and ultimately die from. -Dr. Andrew Saul

Here are links that will give you photos and recipes of the kind of thing I'm talking about. They will be even more helpful to you than my own scratchy notes:

Maybe even, while you are cutting down, find good, clean (almost)pizza recipes. Or similar kinds of foods. I have found a quick "tart" recipe that starts with a store-bought puff pastry (choose a high-quality brand with no hydrogenated oil) and then you pile on whatever you want. Fresh tomato slices, s & p and grated Parmesan cheese is simple and really tasty. Serve with a little red wine and a salad...and a movie. Not perfectly "clean" 'cuz of the white flour pastry but oh, so much better than your typical pizza place.
Just an idea.
Want a more detailed recipe?

I would say to start with still getting it once a week and then cut it back to 2 weeks and so on until it is just a once in a while treat...

I eat clean 90 percent of the time. I do believe you HAVE to treat yourself to a splurge meal. Try going clean all the way and always look forward to your friday night with your favorite hubby and veggie pizza. :) You deserve it if you are good through the week. Have a good workout on Saturday! ENJOY!

I just joined this group and started reading the Eat -Clean diet. I am totally jazzed about doing this. I am starting slow as I've not even gotten 1/2 way through the book yet. I am wondering though... have any of you had a hard time giving up a favorite food or beverage? My husband and I get veggie pizza from a local Italian place every Friday night. Actually, we formally called Fridays "Pizza and Alcohol night." LOL! We are both giving up alcohol though. But I can't fathom giving up pizza! Have any of you held onto a favorite "dirty" food?
