This Sparked Me!

I'm a classically trained pastry Chef and I've found that baking (and cooking to a certain extent) helps my cravings. Think about it this way, after slaving over a hot oven for an hour to have some cookies come out looking perfectly, could you really bear to eat and destroy them? This method is not for everyone, but I've worked in food service since I was 15 and it's fool-proof for me.

    umm, yeah I would totally eat my perfect beautiful cookies. I'm real glad this works for you but it would be total suicide diet wise for me.

    I've found this is the way I am, but not for the same reason. When I finish cooking a big meal, I don't feel like eating it, but I'm not sure why. For me, I don't mind at all destroying any sweets. I WISH I were like you! I worked in a grocery store bakery and 8 years and 60 lbs later, I left. I'm going to TRY to think that way in the future. My only way around it is not to bake anymore and don't buy it.
