    i keep wanting to cook for everyone and have a bit of an addiction with cook books. Is that normal? ive been doing it from when i started on and off as i dont think the kitchen is a good place for me right now. Help!

    Have had a good day though apart from that realization and drank 4 litres of water which is a miracle in my case!

    I cook everyday.

    I love all aspects of food including cooking. I find it relaxing plus it fills a time when I would otherwise be sitting around bored.

    Also it is reminding me of what I can have when I have achieved where I want to be. It is amazing, but junk has not jumped in my head....but meals, proper healthy meals have.

    Me too, I'm doing Cambridge and I just want to cook and bake all the time. And I love watching Come Dine With Me.... I keep getting the cook books out too. But baking is definitely my thing at the moment, the girls at work love me....trouble is I have no idea what the cakes taste like ????

    Many members on a vlcd do find a new appreciation for cooking , reading cook books and watching TV cookery programmes.

    It could be that the personal break from eating gives you a chance to view food in a different light.

    Good to hear that today was good for you, you are must likely in the zone and this is a nice place to be, long may it last:)

    completely normal!
    i must have bought 20 cookbooks whilst in abstinence and made so much food - the family thought it was brilliant.
    (unfortunately a year on the obsession has disappeared, lol!)

    A chef - how did you manage all that time cooking all the time and never tasting. Did you have other people taste for you?

    I did get chefs to taste just for seasoning levels, lol but after this long in the cooking game I suppose I know when something is right or not. On the other hand, my sense of smell developed so much that I could almost work it all out by smell alone :)
