Have You Ever Given Up an Unhealthy Food?

I'm a firm believer in everything in moderation, except when it comes to french fries — my thought on the subject is usually "there's no such thing as too many." So a few months ago (spurred by this study claiming that french fries are at the top of the foods that are making us fat), I decided to challenge myself and see how long I could go without eating them.

Forgoing sharing fries with friends at happy hour or dinner has been a little hard, but it has saved me a few calories and forced me to make healthier choices overall, like ordering a side of broccoli with my burger instead. And while I'm not sure how long this self-imposed no-fries rule will last, I'm noticing that I crave them less and less the longer I stay away.

Have you ever given up an unhealthy food? What did you give up, and how long did it last?

I have given up tons of unhealthy food and I currently still DO NOT TOUCH THEM... I have been doing this for 10 years and I am still going strong. I crave salmon and spaghetti squash, not pasta and cheese sauce. I want butternut squash, not donuts. I adore stevia, not sugar.

Overly processed food in general. Having to go gluten-free definitely helped with that!
