    i have been inspired to start this thread from reading another post, and when they had written it takes 21 days to kick the habit i looked into this further and indeed it is well documented that it takes 21 days to kick a habit, my habit being picking at food im not meant to on the cambridge.... sooo i have decided that if i stick to it for 21 days my cravings should disapear, right?? well hopefully nevertheless i am finding it easier to say no.. im only day two, but the dinner i just smelt would usually have made it impossible for me to resist however i just kept thinking come on 21 days you can do this... so whos coming to join me?? :wave_cry:

    Hi just thought i'd drop in and say that i was having trouble with picking when i was preparing food for others, not because i was hungry, just because it was a bad habit, to the point i was doing it without even realising. Someone suggested to me to chew sugarfree gum (i know its not advised as makes you hungry) but i just have it as soon as i'm about to prepare food, until everyone has finished eating. It works a treat! I'm not even tempted to pick, and i havent found it makes me hungry either.
    Hope this might help :)

    this is my problem, I don't really have any "major" cheats or blow outs just picking at food while preparing for others,like you I know its only habit, and I'm not hungry, but I think the little tastes are enough to knock me out of ketosis, I will try your sugar free gum idea, hopefully it will keep me on track for 21 days

    Rainbow this is great I am in. I am starting today. Day one for me. Did you already start Rainbow or are you waiting to start on a certain day? I believe I can really stick to 21 days

    hey guys, good to have you on board ha ha :D yeah im a picker, i pick when i get home, and i pick so fast i think it wont matter.. i am nearly at the end of day 3 not picking USAgirl so long may it continue.. i think im doing well as i know 21 days is manageable like you said newyearnewme. i have just been thinking loads about money as well thats 40 a week for this so the sooner i get to target the better.
    good luck everyone, good night x

    Interesting thread.

    Just to add i am on day 21 tomorrow and have been 100% ss for the last 3 weeks and i think this theory works. The 1st week was hard but now i prepare my familys meals and sit in the same room as they eat and it doesnt seem to bother me anymore at all.

    I dont crave food much and never pick when i prepare their food or clear away the plates and load the dishwasher.

    Good luck to you all

    Hey ladies I am in the middle of day 3, I must admit the first 2 days have been hard, but I am counting the days down only 18 days to go after today :D:D:D

    Yummymummy- I cant wait until I am at the point I can clear the dishes off the table and dont mind right now I am trying to avoid the kitchen altogether:rolleyes:

    Rainbow- You are so right, this stuff cost to much so I better stay on track and focus so I can lose this jiggly booty grrrrrrrrrrr :confused::confused:

    Dragonfly- I must admit I love the cheese also
