My fav is macaroni and cheese, ive been trying to not buy it at all so im not tempted to have it. I have given in to my cravings once every two weeks or so but instead of eating half the box alone, i made chicken and veggies amd ate those first and had the mac as a side, helped me fulfill my craving but stayed on track :)

My junk food is my craving for twix... I know I couldn't give it up either, lol. I'm breastfeeding, and it is the one thing that I end up really wanting, badly.

We also eat thing like the pp poster mentioned, mac n cheese, but when ou have a super limited budget, sometimes it's that $.70 box of kraft that feeds you and your children at night.

I love ice cream... I hardly ever eat it now though, if I want it I buy it if we go out to eat or stop for a small treat bc if I have a carton in the house it's GONE!!!! lol... I had a small bowl of frozen fresh served soft serve for the first time in weeks on Friday and it was yummy...

I'm a chocoholic. But truth be told I like just about anything that's sweet and salty.

I have no idea, lol. I think it really depends day to day... Some days, I might end up with 2500-3000, and other days, I might end up eating just 1500... I don't count, so i'm not really sure. If I'm hungry, I eat. If i'm not, I don't. So, many mornings, I don't eat breakfast until 10-11am, lol. Or, I might not get lunch.

anything chocolate...a few times a wk...i could probably give up chocolate for the last 10 days. SO just stocked up on chocolate snacks i dont usually buy sweets for the house but every once in a while SO goes and stocks up on a few. so it'll be tough but i'll just stay out of the pantry...out of sight..out of mind lol
