    I'm sat here with my hot choc mint watching celebrity masterchef!

    I seem to be obsessed with watching all cookery programmes at the moment even though I haven't eaten for months - is it just me?!! :eek:

    That's a relief, thought I was rather strange and developing a strange obsession!

    Can't wait to try all of the healthy recipes when I get into maintenance!!

    I'm the same, but for the first time I'm enjoying looking at recipes and thinking about how I can adapt them to make them healthier. I can't wait to experiment when I reach maintenance and I can't wait to enjoy healthy food!

    Nope, I've recently started watching 'come dine with me' since 'great british menu' has finished, and friday night's Gordan Ramsay is a fave too.

    Very odd that we torture ourselves with these tv programmes!

    You can count me. I love watching iron chef and some other local cooking shows. I also try to find and jot down new healthier recipes that I can try later.

    How bizarre, maybe we're satisfying our sub conscious food cravings by watching instead of eating!!

    I love food programmes Great British Menu even Come Dine With Me... I was looking forward to Masterchef tonight and our TV BBC 1 & BBC2 have gone... dissapeared ..so the OH is just having to watch the football... which is why I'm online! I think there may have been some foulplay!

    I've weaned myself off them a bit now but used to be very obsessed. when i was on maternity leave i sat watching uktv food all day. OH loved it cos he always got a decent evenning meal!!
    still enjoy them, and like someone else mentioned i like to think abot how i could adapt them to suit my diet, but mostly they make me want to eat!!

    We all like watching food programmes in our house, OH is a keen cook. I'm enjoying putting the extra effort in for the famillies evening meal just now and its not bothering me diet wise.

    I can't watch them. I have also noticed since I started this diet that every magazine I open is full of recipes and diets and most TV programmes I watch seem to involve people eating and drinking! I think I am becoming similar to an ex smoker who can't stand people who smoke!
