Speak Up: What Foods Cause You to Overeat?

Certain foods just keep me reaching for more, particularly salty snacks. Refusing to buy the food that makes portion control impossible for you is one way to go, but totally depriving yourself of the things you love is usually asking for trouble. Measure one serving of whatever it is that causes you to overeat and put the larger package away for the next time you have a craving. You might always want more, but savoring the single serving will satisfy without the guilt. Now that you have learned a great technique for dealing with your trigger foods, tell me below what foods cause you to overeat?

i have a seed obsession, i love the taste and texture of multi-seed, multi-grain crackers. i could eat them forever.anything with a crunchy texture makes me go overboard.

Definitely Salmon Belly, Salmon Skin, Hamachi Kama, Sashimi, Ground Beef - I could eat pounds and pounds of these foods in one single sitting!

Depriving does not work. It totally backfires. I must have at least one day each week to eat a cookie.

Peanut butter is a huge weakness also, but i found a product called "pb2" and its powdered peanut butter and it's only 53.2 calories for 2 tablespoons..i ordedr it online and it kinda helps, but it's so de-fatted that it don't have that extreme peanut butter taste. I do notice that if i have it in the house then i seem 2 refrain from buyng regular pb

I can't believe French fries only got on mention so far! I can't stop myself once I get started, no matter how painfully full I get. It's best for me to just avoid them altogether.

Any food that I really like: cake, chips (especially when you go to a restaurant and they've got chips out), candy...the list is endless. I also overeat when my family has special birthday or holiday dinners because the food is so good!

LAY'S POTATO CHIPS!!! I can't leave them alone!!!! Its the salt thing. I also love pretzels and cheetos. I just can't stop eating them. Also next on the list is probably pizza. Good pizza.

Apples are my favorite food, too Mila_83 (Honeycrisp and Fuji are my favorite!) But also, starch snacks, like crackers, rice, cakes, etc. Oh and cheese!

Pringles. Doritos. PMS. An exceptionally bad day. I often overeat on special occasions but in my opinion that's alright.

apple crisp! i can eat disgusting amounts of it. Whenever i bake a pan, i portion out all the servings so i don't overdo it in one sitting. I guess it's pretty "guilt-free" as i make it with splenda and a very tiny amount of margarinealso, APPLES! i worked it out once and discovered that i eat around $12 worth of apples EACH WEEK!And finally, (i don't know if this counts) coffee - not starbucks rancid-burnt crap but the organic green beans i roast at home. mmm...the only thing that stops me from having more than 2 cups is the overcaffeination factor!
