    Does anybody else find themselves watching other people eating?
    I can't help it I'm not actually hungry But I am missing food. I find myself watching my BF eat and watching his expressions as to whether its nice and the same in work to the point I'm like ''Ooh what you eating, is it good?'' like a right weido.
    Aggghhh, Please someone tell me ''IS THIS NORMAL?''
    Another thing I had a terrible dream last night that I ate a MarsBar and this knocked me right out of Ketosis, woke up wondering if I'd slept walked and stuffed my face but I don't really like them and definately have'nt got any in the house.
    So also ''anybody has any weird food dreams?''

    Oh yes! I have had many dreams of eating food, especially fried chicken! It's very normal.

    And for some reason, I too want to watch others eat. I always ask them, what does it taste like and stuff. I miss food :(

    Last time i dreamt i had ate toast with a rake of butter. Woke up in a cold sweat. And yeah i was watching people eat and i was cooking non stop for brothers that didn't live at home and bringing them food just for the smell of it. I dunno how many loafs of brown bread, soda bread, lasange, cheesecaks i made. House was choca block with food id cooked just to smell it.

    I don't find myself watching people eat but I do find myself cooking more and I hate and detest cooking.
    And the nightmares ! yeah I get them, I dream I have had a big meal and wake up in a sweat feeling all guilty until I realise it was just a silly dream.
    I don't usually have cravings on this diet either but the other day I could have killed for a Sprout.

    I'm the same as everyone above. Always asking to sniff hubby's food and asking is it nice? Dreamt last night I ate a greek chicken gyros and in it stopped halfway through shouting oh no I've eaten, I'm not allowed to eat anything! I woke up petrified it was real. So glad it was just a dream but these dreams are nothing new. You will get used to them!

    Off now to make chicken kebabs for the family and put the chicken in to marinade right now. Here we go again.

    Before I went onto re-feed I was watching every bite of what people were eating and I loved to have a good smell of food, this seemed to take my craving away. Since starting back on LT after refeed I dont seem to be doing this much now, but I always ask OH how is his dinner, does the meat taste nice, are the potatoes nice and soft........the list is endless, he must think I am posessed.

    I've turned into housewife of the year!!! I can't stop planning meals and cooking really nice stuff and then watching people eat it. Normally I just bung something frozen in the oven.

    Another food sniffer here. Funnily enough I think my tastes are changing. I opened a pack of prawn crackers for my kids and normally I would have wolfed into them and they just smelt weird ???

    I sniffed a pack of hula hoops today and thought they just smelt greasy, which I guess is some kind of breakthrough!

    I'm finding my choc shakes are tasting really chocolatey this week, just like chocolate angel delight! I used to love that!

    When I was refeeding a couple of weeks ago the healthy choices I was making tasted unbelievable. The one thing I did notice though is that I didnt need to add salt to anything, your palate really does get cleansed. I had a couple of chips once and before lipotrim I loved chips, they tasted greasy and horrible, so thankfully my love of chips has vanished.

    I hope I say I hate McD! Really good to know though Kered that you palate really does change so much. Makes it a little easier to think about refeeding eventually!
