well, I caved on the cookies (for hubby), and of course ate half of them. So I stayed the coffee craving just to prove I could do it. LOL!

Usually crave what I know I shouldn't eat. The other night it was a great big bar of choclate. Fortunately there was none in the house. I also can't resist the skin of roast chicken.

I sort of give into my cravings as I feel it is my body telling me what it wants BUT I don't necessarily give in to the food item I crave but aim for the driver behind the craving. Like if I fancied KFC, I would just look for something with fat in it instead. Same with salt foods and milk items. But avoiding the actual craving just means I eat more cos I try for something else and still end up with the thing I craved.

I refuse to put a lot of effort into a craving though so if it means I need to leave the house just to do that when I have perfectly good food/drink here, then, no I won't do that at all.

I agree, Barb - COFFEE. We dropped by to visit some friends the other night and brought some of the lemon pound cake I made that day. They don't drink coffee - what is cake without coffee? We got home at 11 pm and still had such a strong craving for coffee, we had to make a pot. Fortunately, we are retired and didn't have to get up and go to work the next morning.
Saludos, Karen

Brie and Gorgonzola cheese spread on bagel chips and pistachios. I had these together last night. I enjoyed them and don't feel one bit guilty this morning. Of course, I don't get on the scale for few days.

My craving is usually a texture type of thing. Like I'll crave something crunchy. It could be chips, pretzels, crackers, sesame sticks, celery, carrots, as long as there's a good crunch. I've been buying the little individual bags of chips and pretzels for just such and occasion. One of those bitty bags will do me for a couple of days. Several months ago my craving was dill pickles. Now I have like 3 jars of pickles in my fridge, whole big ones, mini wholes and spears. Craving is over!
I could give up chocolate but I'm no quitter!

Sometimes I do, sometimes I don't. I almost always look for alternatives, but then that can lead to more food, cuz I eat the alternative then eat what I was actually craving in the first place!
