If You Had To Give Up One Food, What Would It Be?

The other day I received an interesting email from one of my older brother's best friends, the handsome baseball coach, Matt. In the email, Matt described how he and his fellow coaches recently decided to give up certain foods for the entire baseball season from January until June. Matt is giving up all fried foods (healthy and doable), Scott is giving up cheese (I could NEVER in my entire life give up cheese), and Buddy is giving up bread (another tough one). Now I'm all for giving things up every now and then (to change the pace of your diet), and with Lent starting next Wednesday I applaud and encourage Matt and his team's willpower (I am going to give up shopping - not food related but I will definitely need your support readers!). If I had to give up one food I think it would be potato chips, I get weak in the knees whenever I'm near a bag and know I'd be better off without munching on them. How about you? If you had to give up one food, what would it be?

I rarely eat candy bars, chocolate, potato chips, or fast foods. So those wouldn't be too hard. Bread would be hard for me.

This was actually pretty easy for me Yum - I swore off fried foods a while ago when I realized they annoy my tummy & get me all greasy! those other things though? In moderation right?! xo

I don't eat candy bars or fast food, so those two would be easy for me to give up. The hardest would be chocolate. Actually, that would be impossible.

Well, I voted before I really read the entire list. I said bread (which I don't eat much of anyway and unless it's 100% whole wheat) I could give up candy bars because I really don't eat them, either. Rarely eat potato chips. Rarely eat pastries or sweets. I eat lots of veggies, lean protein and stuff like that. My downfall would be crackers, tortilla chips, and dry cereal. I like to snack on them late at night, while I'm reading.

I don't eat potato chips so I could totally give that up, but if that wasn't on the list, I'm not sure what I'd pick!!! Maybe candy bars.

You can at least play around with pizza and make it semi-ok for you...french fries are a weakness that I've always had, I am ok if they are not aorund, but if someone else has them, i will always steal a few (which usually turns into more, cause you can never just have a few). I would love to be able to give up chocolate but that would never happen!
