    I find that if I don't eat (IF), I'm fine.
    If I eat salt or sugar in food, it starts a craving.
    For me SALT in anything is as bad, if not worse, than sweetness and sugars.

    Milk does it for me, but if I don't give in and have a drink of water instead, the craving goes.

    Whole Foods hot bar. I'll fill up only on the good stuff, but once my box is full, there is no stopping. ;-)

    This is an inexorable truth.
    Great, Oxide!

    Damn! So true. It is the so desired excuse to take a off-duty day - and, as Oxide pointed out, everyone wants to relax a little. Primal lifestyle is the definitive way to go, but it also has the hability of making us feel like we're fighting all the time... Isn't it?
    So, we need balance - that is, the 80/20 rule and to look at things as a whole piece first in order to avoid fretting over the not so well-suceeded parts or moments...

    Have not Idea. All I know is that they're damn delicious when I'm stuffing myself with cashews lol. Maybe it's the consistency. I've always liked how creamy they are, so maybe that mixed with the fat becomes a big stimulant for me?

    coho salmon, fruit (ANY!) and roast chicken or turkey

    It is kindda funny, but I managed to get nuts under control by simply doing macadami nuts breakfasts for a while (like 300 cals of macadamia with coffee). After that I have never went into the binging mode on nuts or nut butter.

    When I let go of what I am, I become what I might be.

    Wow, I did that with almonds when I was in college, and it would just cause me to binge for the rest of the day o.O

    Maybe it makes the difference that macadamia is pure fat, while almonds have a fair bit of crb. Fat+carb is a dangerous binge-inducer. Most classic overeating foods are fat+carb.

    That would explain why I turn into the tasmanian devil every time I eat cashews. I think they're higher on the carb count than almonds.
