Sample "Crack Foods List":
Entenmann's chocolate doughnuts
Oreo's (of any kind)
Ice Cream (even the light stuff)
Cereal (will result in late-night cereal eating)
Macaroni & Cheese
Grilled Cheese Sandwich
Ice Cream Sandwiches (even the "diet" kind--you'll eat 2 or 3)
Milk (will result in late-night cereal eating)
Bread (will result in late-night toast eating)
Cheese (with the exception of laughing cow light--no urge to overeat on that).
And remember, it starts when you go to the grocery store. If you buy these foods and have them in your house, then you WILL eat them. Any ideas going through your mind that tell you you can control it, and not overeat on these, is the saboteur setting you up. Post the list somewhere in your house, or in your purse or wallet. Don't fool yourself into leaving foods off the list either. You know which ones belong on your personal list.
