    I'm sure everywhere I look food is being advertised?!?!?! Not sure if its psychological or not?
    Last night I watched TV and every other advert was bloomin food, it made me feel starving!
    Its like when you buy a new car and suddenly you start seeing the same car as yours everywhere!
    Oh an to top it all off, the banner below the forum a moment ago was a dirty great big burger!!!!!!!!!!!!

    That made me smile :)

    Do you hate it in a hate burgers way or hate it because it makes you want a burger?!?!

    Last night I was like a split personality, the little voice in my head was saying " order a chinese, no one will ever have to know"..... and the other voice was saying "don't give in you're doing so well"
    Its seriously so hard when you see all this food everywhere!! :D

    I was not happy to see the burger advert either - clever of the marketing people but cruel at the same time.

    I am ok with adverts on tv, & even enjoy watching cookery programmes - sort of surrogate eating I guess.

    I really don't think I could eat one of those now, I have really struggled not to eat pastry in the past but when I was in Cornwall a couple of weeks back my OH had a pastie & the smell of it made me feel quite queasy - so hopefully that is a good sign and am starting to turn off the worst things to eat.
