    It was hard to get healthy at first, but as time went on staying on track got easier. There are even some things that I don't even want now, even when I give myself a cheat meal.

    Sausage
    Hot Dog
    Bacon

    And other forms of processed meat are now disgusting to me--and I used to love sausage/bacon with syrup. Any foods that you don't even crave/want anymore?

    I know Mountain Dew isn't a food, but from high school until I was 21, I drank in the morning a six-pack of Mountain Dew everyday by lunchtime. Not missing the hyperness or the caffeine headaches.

    Welsh rarebit on Wonder Bread toast. UGH!

    And Taco Bell...to think I ate that crap at least once a week when I was a freshman.

    Sweets altogether. I never really had much of a sweet tooth, so one day I just said no more white sugar (or any other kind except naturally-occurring sugars in fruit).

    And I've never missed them. I get my sweets satisfied by my daily--and this must be the gayest name ever for an apple--Pink Lady.

    The things I don't miss are mostly the things I never liked in the first place, like soda and hot dogs.

    But there are a ton of things I do miss. Chocolate, sausage, nuts, cheese, kettle cooked chips, beer. Hmm, I'm getting hungry.

    OK, confession time. I still eat all of those things, but in far more moderation than in the past.

    After literally crying that I couldn't have them, I got over Oreos. I used to really love Oreos, now, after eating better foods (including the organic cookies by Newman's Own) I don't like them so much. The things we think we'll miss when we go on a diet that's better for us. Go fig.

    When I first got into bodybuilding, I would crave pizza and burgers. Virtually every weekend, I would indulge one meal and have pizza or a burger.

    But now, not so much. My eating has become so clean, the grease from pizza or burgers actually makes me sick.

    I will still try a slice from time to time, but it is no longer something I crave.

    Now donuts... we can still talk about DONUTS!

    I don't crave Coca Cola anymore. It used to be that whenever I was thirsty, the mere sight of something red would set the idea of a nice, cold can of Coke in my head. Now I just don't want it anymore.

    Fast food & candy bars. I still love burgers, fries, sweets, etc. but if i'm gonna indulge myself with all the bad stuff associated with those foods I want it to be quality junk food. A burger & fries at Red Robin instead of a drive thru. Chocolate covered peanut butter candy from Bellbrook Chocolates instead of Reese's cups, etc.

    Forgot to add that I liked but was never crazy about soda/pop, so it's not something I even want anymore.

    Glad you brought that up about feeling sick. Now after cheating on Saturday night, I feel kind of hung over on Sunday morning. My mom eats healthy like I do and cheats on Saturday as well, and she feels sick as well, especially after a lot of sugar.

    And if you think about it, it's kind of like drinking and being hung over. Hang overs are caused by impurities, right? So if you eat clean and then cheat, the grease, salt, sugar, etc., are impurities, so you feel sick afterwards. Back when we used to eat whatever we wanted, we had built up a "tolerance" to all that garbage, so like people who drink all the time, we could eat all that stuff and not feel it.

    It's more likely that your intestinal bacteria are having a population shift when you suddenly alter your diet. The same thing happens when you visit someplace, say San Diego, with lots of sulfate in the water, for example.

    I cant even smell soda without getting sick now. Even if I have it with a alcohol, I get sick.

    I guess I'm lucky that the vast majority of that stuff doesn't tempt me. My biggest challenge is spending the whole day somewhere (like boyfriend's family's house) that bringing your own food might seem rude. I eating stuff I never would just because I'm hungry! I'm starting to get more confident in saying

    Some stuff I could easily survive if I never ate again:

    Potato chips
    Store-bought cookies
    Entenmann's anything
    American cheese
    Any fast food
    Any soda

    My weaknesses are mainly dairy related... ice cream being the biggest culprit.

    Fast food other than french fries

    Don't get me wrong, I enjoy a good hamburger as much as the next guy, but when I decided to start eating healthier, I decided that if I was going to have a hamburger or whatnot, I'd have a real hamburger either from my grill or a sit down restaurant. Now it's distressing if I find myself hungry in an airport without the time to grab something other than at a fast food place--I just find the fast food burgers and chicken unappetizing these days, though I didn't use to.

    I'll still eat fast food fries, though. I prefer that style of french fry over the really think "steak fries" most real restaurants serve.

    muchmorethanmuscle saidI love eating fruit and vegetables. I do it a couple times a week. It's like a 'semi' sacred ritual for me.

    Wow, what kind of carbs do you eat then?
