    Why when I am on a diet do I cook and bake? I just feel compelled to do it. 3 times this week i've made rice pudding with cream and cinnamon, Thai curry (my fave) tonight, and half an hour ago I just got up and made some muesli bars. Why? It's just torture. I can smell those little puppies in the oven now - all crispy and chewy and smelling like heaven. I must be nuts!

    i wanna know HOW you do it
    i cant cook without tasting for seasoning etc
    cant possibly bake without licking the spoon either!

    i really wish i could as i have to cook for others even when dieting but i never know if its going to taste ok

    Are you trying to torture yourself woman!!! :eek::eek::eek::D

    Is there any other activity you could do apart from bake or do you just not want to stop doing it? :confused::D

    I love baking and I tend to do more ofi t when I'm SS for some reason. Although I can;t taste I find smelling it is enough to stop the craving.

    I just popped back to read your replies and realised something. I didn't do much baking before cos if I did I would eat it (not all of it though) and would therefore get the guilt. My family love homemade stuff, so I guess I do it then so they can have it, and I have no guilt cos I know I can't. Does that make sense?

    It is funny isn't it. I am cooking much much nicer meals for my family now that I am not eating and also buying lots of treats for them.

    I think my husband thought he was going to starve whilst I was on CD but he came home tonight to spag bol with garlic and cheese bread and a pudding. I have done several casseroles for them and have been much more imaginative with their food. I think I am compensating for the fact I can't eat. :)

    I seem to enjoy watching the cooking programmes on the Food Network channel, and I have purchased 3 cook books off Amazon including Cook Yourself Thin last week.

    It's like a disease.

    Thats exactly the same with me.
    Last time i was on lipotrim i made blueberry & chocolate muffins, loads of different cakes, different biscuits, all sorts of pudding. I made loads of homemade meals & my family got fed really well.

    I havent been baking since on ss because i wouldnt be able to resist tasting (scoffing) the whole lot. However I have been buying my H the most wonderful and delcious foods that i can find. It's completely crazy that i am spoiling him rotten with all the foods i cant eat myself, but he is very happy with the arrangement!!

    Me too with the cooking. I always feed the family homemade food even when not dieting but (I forget who said this above now, sorry) I try not to bake because I know I'll eat it! Well...I am baking now - in fact I'll be baking chocolate cakes later for the children to sell at school tomorrow. Last night I made chilli for dh and homemade burgers for the children, it all smelled delicious but I didn't taste a bit of it - had my AAM chicken with mushroom.
    I've taken to watching Masterchef - and must admit, I was tempted to go out and buy a new cake baking book but haven't done yet!
