Hi all,
i am returning to LL on Friday and thinking back to last year when i was on it i remember wanting to smell food all the time........you know...if i was at my mums i would sniff meat, cheese anything....theres no carolies in a smell LOL, but is that normal? Anyone else do that? It actually helped me, and i felt oh so in control when i could stop at a snif and not let it touch my lips! LOL

Hi Diane

You are not alone, I did that in the beginning. Now I just look, the boys in the office call it food porn. I am happy to look at it but have gotten to the point where I cannot imagine eating those calorie laden sandwiches (especially the full roast in a bap)

Good luck with your return.

:D the worst smell is toast, when someone has the toaster on at work, my nose twitches :D and when you walk around town you can smell all the food in the cafes being cooked :D

toast has the complete opposite effect on me. when i smell toast, especially with tea, it makes me feel sick. yuk. enough to put you off your food (yay!). lol...

I have started smelling things a lot! In the beginning though, if there was something that smelled good I had to breath through my mouth and get away.

Now I LOVE the smell of food. My OH thinks I torture myself by smelling things, but its a vicarious thrill/satisfaction.

Tange - lol - I also love watching cooking shows, and my OH asks me why I torture myself. I simply tell him its food porn: something that looks yummy, but probably is not as nice as it looks, but make me feel like I am doing something naughty. Like real porn. :rotflmao: :D (not that I watch porn. :) ) ((no - really! I don't! :D)

Tee Hee BL millions wouldn't but I believe you.

Don't get me started on cooking shows, I have a note book almost full with ideas for what I am going to cook once I can.
I really miss being in the kitchen creating something.
Ah well for tonight it was a lovely chicken and veggie soup YUM

I'm not a sniffer, but I do obsessively watch cooking programmes.

It's 'research', because I've never been one for cooking and need to get a portfolio of recipes :)

Also been looking through all my old recipe books and marking things I'd like to try.

I have an almost indecent interest in what other people are eating - I grill (ho ho) my boyfriend about what he's had for lunch and sit and watch him eat every bite of his meal in the evening, like some greedy Labrador. Haven't actually started drooling yet but it can only be a matter of time!

And I inhale so furiously when walking past the waffle shop at Bond St station that people sometimes turn and look at me.

I'm a tragic case....!

Peridot, that is so funny, I happened to walk past that very waffle place last night and I also took the biggest sniff ever.
Reminded me of being at the German Xmas markets where you get a massive waffle drowned in cream with warm black cherries. :cool:

I've sniffed food from day one... felt like I wasn't missing out if I smelt it. I have also found myself watching lots of cooking programmes to find ideas of healthy meals when I am no longer in abstinence. Isn't it funny how we do these things? :)

It IS funny how we do these things and now that you mention it, i was also obsessed with watching Gordon Ramseys Hells Kitchen And kitchen nightmares! I had forgotton all about that! My brother and hubby would think i was torturing myself but somehow it made me feel better? Strange eh? Though those blasted M&S adverts, you know its not just food, its M&S food really started to psss me off! lol. Well it WAS the run up to xmas last time! Aint it funny though when you are abstinent that you notice these things SO much more. There seems to be food everywhere calling on you!!!! eeek, those damn voices in my head!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!
