Beck day 7
Saturday, February 03, 2018
I just read day 7, it is about re-arranging the environment.
I just did. I threw out most of the peanut butter that was still in the jar... (and ate the rest, groan... But, it's gone now.).
I am also glad the dried mango slices we got for the first time a while ago, are nearly finished.
Both foods seem to be a trigger food for me now. The mango perhaps because it's sweet and my body still craves sugar after one week of 'abstinence' (what a word).... The peanut butter, I don't know? Because it's fatty and salty? I don't even LIKE it all that much, so why do I keep (over)eating it?
Anyhow I think that now there are no true trigger foods in the house, any more.
There are some things I should just not buy nor keep in the house. Potatoe salad. Liquorice. But also former 'diet foods' like rice cakes. I should also know better than to buy frozen pizza or frozen potatoe products thinking it will come in 'handy' on a day when I feel too tired to cook. That day arrives a lot sooner when I know these products are in the house.
Some time ago I wrote out a list with 'trigger foods', foods that I know are likely to tempt me to binge. And in my daily log I started registering, checking off a square each day: 'did not buy trigger foods'. Now the phrase is 'no trigger foods in the house'.
What are 'trigger foods' or 'temptations' for you and do you have rules about them?
