I've been on a diet lately, basically just cut out all the choccy, alchol and fizzy drinks and making sure i get loads of protein and carbs in me for the gym. craved all sorts of rubbish but just ignored it and carried on with my healthy eating. been a month so far and all is good :good:

I'm actually very good with regards to most 'junk' food.
I dislike the taste of fast food such as KFC, McDonalds, Burger King etc etc. Don't crave or eat chocolate, crisps, sweets, fizzy drinks etc etc (I drink water, no sugar fruit juice, coffee and alcohol).
I only ever eat take-away pizza if I'm drunk (and even drunk I still wont eat kebabs! :sick: )

My biggest weaknesses are take-away chinese and take-away curry. Even then the only reason I need to diet (which I really do), is because I'm a lazy b*gger who eats to much and doesn't exercise enough.
I don't snack and have 3 balanced meals a day...I just don't listen to the 'I'm full' message when my stomach tells me.

So I suppose if I was to describe a craving then it'd be for big meals of savoury food :D

Good luck! And keep it up. Me and my OH are starting a diet in the coming months (when we get back from Uni), I've been wanting to loose weight for ages but he wasn't bothered so it made it hard for me too cause when he said 'Oh do you want to stay in and I'll buy us chinese' when I had previously been planning to go out to exercise and have a light meal such as grilled chicken salad...well....I gave in. lol.

I could really do with a Full Slab of Baby Back Ribs, theres a restuarant in Haines City, Florida called Mannys Chophouse, they do the best ribs I have ever tasted. but I got another 10 months before I am back out in the USA to be able to taste them, so my craving really sucks right now. Still they will taste all the better when the time comes.

If you are ever down that way, make sure to stop by, you can also go and have alook at their menu on their website Mannys Chophouse Just look at them pictures of the food. not good if you are on a diet.

Love chocolate and chips (AKA crisps). Before I eat any junk food I have to burn the calories off first (ie one tiny easter egg (7g) of chocolate = 10 min of high intensity excercise). This is definitely making me think twice. I am reallllllllly wanting pizza tonight, only anther 1/2hr and the shops will close and it will be out of reach. Oh pizza and fizzy drinks, ummmm. I should really get off this thread! LOL.

I've just made Bacon, egg and onion fried rice, it tastes so good, probably not good for the though!
