    Am curious to see what everyone's downfall was before adopting a more sensible eating regime.

    I have never been bothered about chocolate and sweetstuff. I ate some, but my big downfall was carby takeaway food like chinese (lots of noodles and rice) curries with rice and nan bread, McD's etc. I was also a fiend for eating a whole BIG bag of kettle chips in one sitting, after having had a dinner twice the size it should have been. Oh and then there was the bowls of cereal before going to bed, again after having had a large dinner.

    Not surprising I got fat now that I look at it. I made a list today of the kind of things I would eat in a week and whilst the list isn't that long, it was shocking to see how many starchy carbs I would eat.

    So what was your downfall?

    Chocolate, cakes, biscuits, more cakes. Major major sweet tooth.

    Chinese food <- that needs a whole line to itself.

    Also.. so called 'healthy low fat things' pasta etc, used to eat far too much of it then get super sleepy a couple of hours later.

    Oh, and mcdonalds banana milkshakes.

    I don't have much of a sweet tooth really

    I ate way to much, Bread, Chinese, Indian, Rice, Pasta, and I would eat a big Mac as a mid morning snack. I'd also eat 8 slices of thick toast and cheese as a late night munchy.

    Chocolate, chocolate and oh, chocolate. I don't really like any other sugary stuff but love chocolate, the darker the better. Have been known to eat cocoa powder from the tin....
