    Just wondering if people give in to the temptation to pick - really honestly!!

    I find it really hard when I'm cooking for the family not to just taste this or pinch a little bit of that - then I realise what I've done and beat myself up about being so feeble. I don't mean great mouthfuls,just mini bits of course!

    Hi Annes
    I have never picked when on TFR......I have to shop, prepare and cook for my hubby and it honestly doesnt touch my lips! When I am not on TFR I do taste, pick, etc...but when on TFR that just goes.

    I would try not to pick...it takes a while to get used to it, but it will affect your weight loss and could quite easily take you out of ketosis.

    No i have never picked at anything, the penalty is too big. If i was in a place in my head where i just had to pick i would actully decide to eat something healthy, a proper meal. I know what i'm like and if i picked at something bad i would just stuff my face. Like Scotsmist said be careful as picking can/will keep you out of ketosis.

    I have never picked on TFR and don't intend to. I do all the shopping and prepare and cook all the family's food. I have taken the kids to Macdonalds today and the smell of the chips were very tempting. I have just cooked my hubby Chicken Tikka Masala with chips, rice and naan bread (one of my favourites) and I'm sat here with a glass of water...mmmmm!

    I just said to my hubby, if I was on an ordinary diet like WWatchers I would have given in and had the curry.

    Hi Annes,
    what happened me in the past is that when I tried to re-start LT on numerous occasions and I started picking, that was the end of it for me. I started to pick more and more and finally give up.
    I did it successfully before for nine weeks but never touched a single morsel and this time I am on it for almost three weeks now.
    I have to cook every single day as I have four kids and hubby who works nights. I work nights too but am on relief so I pick and choose when i go in.
    In actual fact, I have become much more interested in healthy cooking and food for the family since being on LT. I have started thinking of new things to cook and love smelling everything!!! Really weird, I know.
