Do you pick?

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.

I had one strand of cheese whilst grating.....! That is honestly the only morsel of food that had passed my lips.

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.
