Eating More of a Particular Food or Type of Food?
« on: May 02, 2020, 09:52:25 am »
I have to be so careful when I go to the grocery store now.  I love sweets and since we are all at home so much I have a tendency to eat them as a "go-to'!  I guess I am doing that out of boredom and comfort.  If they are in the house, I am eating them down quickly. At any rate, I have to limit buying them at the store.  It is the only discipline I have right now in order to not eat them like "a pig wallowing in mud!"

i hear you! I am exactly the same way. If I didn't have two sons who are now young men, I wouldn't bring anything crave-worthy into the house, LOL!  But I do try to limit these items. My sons don't need all that much in way of snacks, and my husband and I probably don't need ANY snacks, especially the candy, chips, etc. I'm wishing you and myself willpower!  :peace: :heart:

I have been lucky during this time of being inside most of the time that I have stuck to my diet. Yes I do enjoy a slice of pizza once in a while and a calzone here and there but for the most part, I still do not drink soda or eat junk food anymore

Yes I hear you too but I ordered a bunch of sweets and junk food/snack food online and it is far to late for me now.  My son who lives with me had a fit about all the stuff I ordered but honestly he would be the first to go looking for something if there was nothing here.  I am kind of growing tired of his tirades now that we are stuck here together lol but he does the cooking mostly so I think I will leave well enough alone so to speak.

With all due respect, JaniceSW, I don't think pigs eat while they're wallowing in mud. :confused1:

I'm trying to eat better lately....more fruits and vegetables because when self-isolation first started I was really enjoying my comfort foods, chips, ice cream and candy, so I've gained a few pounds that I definitely need to loose.

Have also been trying to avoid sweets and junk foods and buying more fruit.  So glad that summer is here so there are different types of fruits out and can go walking more

I meant it as an analogy that I like sweets about as much as a pig does mud!!!!

I've only gone to the grocery store once in the past two months, so that cuts down on buying tempting treats.  If you can resist not buying them & having them in the house, that tends to eliminate the eating of them definitely. 

One more week of "sheltering in place" for me & then I am resuming back to at least one weekly trip to the grocery store every week. Time to "open California" & take personal responsibility -wear masks, social distance & resume life :)

I have made it a habit to just eat more healthy foods, during this pandemic. I always liked fruits and vegetables; so just eating more of them. It is so easy to binge eat a lot of junk food being  in the house most of  the time now.

At first me and my husband went to Dollar Tree and stocked up on snacks, unhealthy ones then I thought about it  and started eating more salads, wild salmon, and fries. I have a weakness for french fries. I guarantee if I could let fries go, or cut back, I could lose a large amount of weight but the good thing is I lost 6lbs.
