    For me, it's not any particular food sugary or salty. It's the shape of the food, I know, weird. Anything that comes in bite-size packets. Could be grapes, or mints (bad), could be macadamia nuts ($$$), could be M&Ms (bad girl!), could be a whole quart of frozen berries, could be Pringles (bad girl!), could be bite-size beef jerky bits. Anything that's not soupy or crumbly, and that I can eat hand to mouth, is a weakness for me.

      I snack all the time, everyday! What a triggers, eat normal and healthy without following a plan, its more natural.

        One of my trigger foods obviously is watermelon. Last nite I ate....and ate...and ate.
        I woke up feeling kindof crappy this morning. So peeps, if you wake up and have regrets about something that has happened the night before and it involves eating watermelon, you:

        a) Are getting old
        b) Need to get a fricking life
        c) All of the above

          Regarding your issue, try what I'm going to try (but keep procrastinating... whoops!). Just stop. Remove the trigger from your household.
          I got a really difficult tupperware to open and put the nuts in it....I am thinking of keeping the nuts at work in portioned packets.....I am thinking of freezing them in a block of ice and sticking them in the back of the ALMONDS! Maybe I could have a neighbor keep them. Then I would have to go out of the house to get them....... lol.

            Better yet, make it the cranky neighbor (relative, in-law) you try to avoid...

              Let's see... there's a custom lightened trigger on my Taurus CIA model 650 .357 mag hammerless w/ crimson trace laser grip, there's a trigger on my "Baby"9 (G26), a trigger on my .45 (G21), there's a trigger on my tiny bitty little Ruger .380 LCP with laser, there's one on my 12ga. shotgun, the trigger on my custom Mauser 22-250 my Dad built, and also a very special one on the Luger P08 that my grandfather brought home from WW2...
              And the entire crazy ass collection of them that I stand to inherit from my father (gunsmith/collector).

              Ahhh triggers.
              I kinda like them.
