Trigger foods, we all have them.
You know, the food that you eat some of and then you can't stop eating? They trigger a binge.
Potato chips are the perfect example. Lays has a whole ad campaign based on this concept.
In fact, I'm pretty sure the foods on Weight Watchers core program are foods that don't cause binging. I think that is why they are considered safe.
I do actually have a point here.
Cereal is a trigger food for me. I'm not sure why. And it seems like it can be any kind of cereal. Count Chocula (my favorite), Cheerios, Corn Flakes - it doesn't matter. I can just eat a small serving of cereal because I am not hungry and I know I need to eat breakfast and then I am famished. I want three more bowls.
Cereal is my perfect appetizer.
Does this happen to anyone else? Can anyone explain this?
