    I don't eat it. Why being in the office would change my mind about ingesting crap ? I see software engineers all day long and they all have that look of sub-optimal health as made visible by their usually buttoned shirt stuck in their pants, putting in evidence their fat belly. Most of them have soft limbs and muscles, covered with a thick layer of skin fat. The worst is really the belly and lower back (most of my colleagues are men). You should see the mountain of foods they eat during lunch, and before and after ... sitting all day long, etc. I am amazed ...

    I completely agree with this approach. Sometimes it's all mental. I also try to be really picky about stuff. I've got great dark chocolate at home, I'm not going to eat a mediocre candy bar just because its there.

    I guess I'm lucky though because my office usually doesn't have baked goods around, partly because a couple of my coworkers are diabetic.

    There are a lot of colleagues at my hospital that also brings in bakes goods. I just look at all those baked goods and laugh on the inside. I feel good when I'm the rare ones that can resist and don't mind looking at them...its callled willpower.

    When colleagues let me know to try I say I will try later...and also give them a white lie on how good it was despite not taking any lol

    I don't know man, I don't feel it is willpower in my case, I just see the pseudo-goodies being picked up by the guys that eat it, and then my eyes happen to look at the guys' bellies and limp limbs: an absolute NOGO ...

    Imagine the donuts all covered in maggots.

    Unless you like eating maggots, of course.

    Just bring your own "junk food" and eat it instead if you can't do mind over matter. If you can't go until lunch without wolfing down something you don't want to eat, you probably need to rethink your diet.

    Willpower? Puh-lease. That is at best a temporary solution. I can look at pork anything (including bacon) all day long and not blink an eye because I don't eat pork. It isn't willpower, it is just a food I don't and will never ever eat. Period. Many foods fall into that category. That is not the issue.

    The whole issue the OP is struggling with is they are surrounded consistently by unhealthy food they find very tempting (whether you agree that food is tempting isn't the point). The point is they wanted to know if you are surrounded by food you love and can see and smell it all day long (and no you can't walk away because you work there!) but you don't want to eat it, how do you handle it?
