You know, for me it's not so much food issues as head issues about food.
I know what's healthy, I know what my pouch tolerates and my body likes for fuel.
Nevertheless, I'll find myself driving to support group, passing a Culvers, and thinking "ooooh - I can get a brownie concrete mixer!"
That's a pure head issue. I'm not hungery, neither my pouch nor my body likes concrete mixers (my taste buds do, but that's another part of my body I'm ignoring), but my head thinks chocolate would be a good idea.
I have a sick head. I ignore it a whole lot now. In order to do that effectively, I pack food (shakes, tupperware tubs of pre-measured fruits and veggies, and greek yogurt with SF preserves and protein) every evening for the next day. It's much more difficult for me to go off plan if I've got my food with me.
Now, this is a whole lot LESS struggle than before surgery when my head ruled the day, so I count this as a huge victory!
