Am I the only one??... who whilst on LT loves to go food shopping and cooking my partner tea. ???

Very weird, but it makes me feel good.. I like looking at whats on offer in the Supermarkets and looking through healthy recipies from my cooking books, ready for when I come off the diet...

Anyone else like this.. or do you completely avoid being around food?

ahhhhh I gotta say I'm the total opposite, I hate being around food, I like to isolate myself from it and be in my own little Lipotrim world :p

I am constantly thinking of food! And am loving thinking about what to cook my husband and son, planning healthy meals is becoming an obsession, lol. Love the smell too. I think I can fool myself that I've eaten if i've been cooking too. :D Also loving watching diet programmes like Biggest Loser USA! xxx

You're all mad! :D I avoid food at all costs, tunnel vision if I have to go into a shop to get a bottle of water
me too .. I have actually started to love cooking .. and baking .. was up at 11 pm the other night cooking home made fish cakes and banana bread for the kids ... and am always looking for lovely healthy recipes that I can ejoy when I have finished !!
I also have to sit at the table when they eat .. and often have my nose in it sniffing it .. if I small it .. I can 'taste ' it in my mind .. so I feel like I have eaten some ... weird but true . I also often sniff my kids chocolate !!! hmmmm

I go shopping every week and cook every meal every day for my daughter and her daddy :) I feel better doing everything as i did, if i stopped everything like shopping cooking i think it would make me give up on LT lol.

I love meal planning, buying the stuff and cooking and baking and it hasn't bothered me really at all whilst I've been on LT.If anything I've been more prolific in the kitchen! ;)
