:argh: HELP!!!

I have become addicted to food programmes, so much so that I have actually started to tape them and put them on series link - anything from Celeb Come Dine with Me, MasterChef Goes Large, Market Kitchen....AND even some programme that is on at 5am in the morning (TASTE!!!) that I actually sometimes watch 'cos I am wide awake at that ungodly hour.

I am getting less and less interested in main stream TV (unless someone is cooking)...am I going mad?

Keep looking at them and then you can always adapt them to healthy eating recipes for when you get to target.
No harm in looking.........keep strong.

lol, i was exactly the same when i was on lipotrim hun, whatever makes you happy is all i can say :) it really is strange though how alot of people do take more interest in cooking/food programmes whilst not actually eating, would love a proper psychological explanation as to why we might do that lol i never knew why but i just couldn't stop watching the bleeding things, uktv food was always on,the kids got fed up with it lol

strange though, i rarely watch them now that i am eating again :p
haha - yea everyone at works thinks I am strange since I go in each morning and talk about food TV and ask them what they had for dinner the previous night...not sure they can put up with 14 more weeks of me....tough they will have to get used to it....i was soooo pleased with myself today as i sat next to a plate of shortbread cookies during a 1 1/2 hour meeting this morning - i swear they were calling me - but i resisted...i just made sure everyone else tucked into them..haha they can get fat instead!!

BTW you have done amazingly well and congrats on maintaining!!

You are not going crazy. I gt home from work today and cooked a full fry up for my fella & stir fry for the kids without another bother. I didnt mind the smell and was happy to do it.

I have cooked loads in the last week and keep thinking about what i can cook next!!!

I'm exactly the same, my husband asks why do I torture myself? I'm really not sure.

Not enjoying being around food just yet as I've just restarted and on day 2! I know after 6-7 days I will be back to cooking again, now I'm just preparing very quick food that wont tempt me too much. Saying that I've just bought some chilli nuts half price at M & S, into which I want to dip my finger, lol,not!:eek:

Anyway will soldier on and cant wait for day 7 when food is not so much of an issue! XX

If you are going mad then so am I!!!!!! I love watching those programs, especially Nigella!!! As for baking, I haven't baked so much ever! I love to make cakes, brownies, cookies, etc for my children but haven't been tempted! I daren't make a cheesecake though, I made one at Christmas and it was delicious!!!!!

I've become a sniffer as well!!!!! My children are used to me asking if I can sniff their food, the smell is all I need!!!!
