we all need our little treats. As long as you are not pigging out on them all day every day a treat makes you feel good. Somebody famous said [forget who] - None of us are getting out of this alive so enjoy the day and eat the cake

Get the vanilla whilst you can, i-spy.

The price of vanilla has gone through the roof: a more than tenfold increase!

Many makers reformulating their products, with substitution for vanilla.

No cake today - or tomorrow. Crisps out too. These medicals have a lot to answer for
This thread is now as dead as a donut.

I used to eat all of the stuff listed, which for the most part, considerably enjoyed.

For the best part of seven decades, I managed to also stay slim.

Probably burning up fewer calories after retirement, but still (fairly) slim.

But when I quit smoking, the weight really piled on.

So for a long time now, NO sugary/fat chocs, sweets, cake, biscuits etc, even cream on my strawberries I have had to exclude. (no milk/sugar for over 30 years - my beverages black no S)

But shedding the belly fat was really difficult. Had to also squelch the grey carbs, particularly spuds and bread, which were two of my favourites, and a day packed full of NEAT!

So yes, reading this thread, I do feel deprived of the pleasures of partaking in the foodstuffs mentioned.

But it has certainly been worth it. The improvement in my health and general well-being is phenomenal. Even my GP says remarkable.

Enjoying life more, and considerably reduced meds which I need to take.

Nowadays, as I walk the supermarket isles, see the special offers such as 'Flake': Four for a Pound - I find myself uttering, "Resist: be kind to yourself. far less painful not to put on the excess in the first place"!
