The fruit is the same story, we have apples most of the time, sometimes bananas, pears, and grapes. SOMETIMES we have fresh pineapple, hopefully it's ripe and not white when you do get it.

Anyways. There is ALWAYS a supply of pies, cookies, icecream, fried food, soda, etc...

SO this is tough for me.

I just read through most of these posts and I miss American junk food / bad for me foods sooo much! I can't wait to go back and pig out. I'm gonna have a cheat WEEK to make up for all the time I've been strict here.

Anyways. Just wanted to rant and confess I ate some (a bite size) chocolate today.
You've probably contribued more cheat/craving posts than everyone else combined in the past month. If you are genuinely feeling this desparate for cheats after this long you are doing something very wrong. You either are failing to remain clean enough for long enough that you haven't actually detoxed, or you are doing something very wrong, at this point you should be feeling pretty satiated by what you eat and having good energy levels.

U-Swirl may 3-4 times a month. I stay really good though when i go. Just some shredded coconut I bought at Whole Foods and i throw some pecans, almonds, and walnuts on there.

Pumpkin WAS my favorite. They got rid of the flavor

When does this happen? One day I'm just supposed to be like meh, pancakes aren't that great.

When does this magical change happen for most people?

I do cheat by having a small nibble of a dark chocolate bar.

Re: Dietary Confessions of a Crossfitter

Yesterday I cooked in a Cajun Cookoff contest. I can't begin to even name all of the sins I committed, including starting on the bloody mary's at 7am...
BTW, my team took 2nd place in the people's choice!

Usually its about 10-15 days in when you stop feeling like crap or having constant cravings. It SHOULD, turn into a very rare occurrence, more of a "I'm walking thru the bakery section of the grocery store and that bread smells awfully good" but it passes as soon as you move out of proximity kind of craving, than a constant desire for cheat foods. Are you eating enough fats?

Re: Dietary Confessions of a Crossfitter

today was not a good day... started off slow with potato chips, quickly moved to a piece of baking chocolate that i found tucked back in a cabinet, then proceeded directly to a whole sleeve of ritz crackers, and finished with more pita chips...

Re: Dietary Confessions of a Crossfitter

I had a pretty solid binge tonight, and it was all peanut butter and chocolatey goodness. From left to right: a regular frozen Reese's peanut butter egg, a jumbo Reese's peanut butter egg (6oz), and a good slice of Reese's peanut butter ice cream cake from Friendly's. My phone's camera does not do this justice, there was so much peanut butter in that jumbo egg. You can notice a trend here

I honestly have no idea why it took me so long to find out that Friendly's makes such an amazing cake. I've been searching for one for awhile, and Coldstone's comes close but this tasted exactly like a Reese's should taste in ice cream form. This meal clocked in at just over 1,700 calories. I call it refueling my glycogen stores from skiing for 4-5 hours for the past four days. I still have over 3/4's of the cake left in the freezer too

Re: Dietary Confessions of a Crossfitter

I ate an entire medium pizza. I hadn't had pizza in over a year, and man, did it taste good.

I have a feeling the WOD is going to hurt today.

I do.

I eat bacon in the morning.

I eat almonds in between meals with a banana or an orange/mini orange thing.

So I dunno. Maybe I'm just one of those unbreakable junkies.
