    I started on 810 plan yesterday and found it very easy (please don`t shoot me!) but for some reason after work, I bought loads of crap for the kids??? I spent £20 on junk :(

    Then today after work, I did the same thing again?? I have bought 2 huge packs of Haribo sweets, 2 packets of Maryland Cookies, a big tub of 12 mini Toffee Yum Yums and a pack of 12 Profiteroles for after tea :eek::(

    I dunno why I seem to have gone off the rails buying loads of crap I wouldn`t usually since starting my diet??

    My friend said it could be cos I want to be eating it, But most of what I bought I can`t eat anyway and wouldn`t buy if I COULD eat it. So I just don`t get it?? :confused:

    I`m really losing the plot :sigh:

    Kids love it tho cos they don`t usually get loads of junk haha

    In my defence, I also bought my little one a pack of grapes & apple slices :innocent0002:

    Anyone else as mental as me?? lol

    Lol I am sort of the same, I make fantastic meals for my husband and girls, I start from scratch and make it all doing curries and stews. I never do that when I am not dieting its always the quickest thing I can russle up like a curry from a jar where you add the meat. Tonight their having pizza with a home made base. Glad to know I am not on my own. Good luck.

    Glad to hear I`m not the only nutter :rolleyes: haha

    I am also a serial sniffer!! I sniff and touch all the things I can`t have lmao

    Some people think I`m mad for "torturing" myself, But it doesn`t actually bother me that I can`t eat them?? :confused:

    I stood in the bread isle today and just sniffed to my hearts content cos all the diff breads smelled DIVINE! And I can`t eat bread!

    Maybe I need committing lmfao

    I also cook and bake when I am SSing (or once I get past the first day or so!). Yesterday, I made risotto, beef casserole, baby new potates roasted with rosemary & coarse sea salt (my 7 year old helped!) then we baked blueberry muffins! My husband who is very supportive thinks that's great but thinks I am mental as I then watch cookery shows and read cookery books! Talk about water torture!

    So no, you are not mental!

    I turn into a feeder too when I'm on CD. Cook and buy snacks and discuss what my housemates fancy for dinner and watch cooking shows! Lol! I think it helps feed the mental hunger with mental images. Although my housemates joke it's so as I slim they grow lol! :) x

    I definitely do it... stock up for the kids and even buy chocolate for friends... it's like, if I can't have it, someone should! And it's definitely self-torture, but also a way of testing the self-control! Very weird...

    Once I get past the first three to five days -- then I change from being and eater to a feeder. I bake, cook, experiment, do the deep breathing in the bake shop, etc.

    But, for some reason I never get past having a difficult time watching people cook or eat on the tele.

    What Diet are you using?

    What diet are you using?

    I think most of the people who are doing the "food porn" thing (and that is an apt analogy) -- are going without food altogether.

    I think the "being in ketosis" makes you not hungry, but you still have all your emotional issues (and habits, traditions, etc.) centered around food that you somehow have to manage.

    @Dione --

    The last time you did CD... it didn't get any better once you were in ketosis?

    If it didn't for me... I do not think I could have stuck out the 12 weeks on SSing on LL.
