We spend so much time on here talking about what we avoid, and how sugar and fried food are like bungee jumping of a 6 foot wall. So as a change of tack, what are your favourite treats, and how often do you allow yourself to have them?

I will go first.

1x Nutrageous bar. 1 every month. Pure Joy

I then also have one other treat in the month- either savoury or sweet depending on which I fancy at the time.

Sweet options

Tub of ice cream (HD cookies and cream, or B&J's Oh my Apple Pie being regular examples)

1 box of 6 glazed donuts

Savoury options

Full indian meal (onion bhajee, mushroom rice, chicken tikka, prawn phuree and a keema naan)

Chinese meal (crispy aromatic duck, special fried rice, chilli shredded chicken, won ton soup)

Pizza (largest size available) (pizza hut stuffed crust super supreme with extra cheese and spicy beef, or domino's full house on a dominator base).

So, there are my weaknesses. I do not have a fixed date of the month when i have my treat, I know its the day when I am living it. i have been known to have my treats on the last, then first day of the month, making 2 days in a row, but thats fine, its doesnt break the rules

So 'fess up, what are your weaknesses, and how do you incorporate them into your healthy lifestyle?

Favorite treat: Halvah...I can't resist the stuff. Chocolate as well. If it wasn't for the whining of my brats on 'holidays' I would never buy the stuff.

Monday through Friday I'm never it's easy to 'be good'. But the weekends are another matter...

Occasional glass (or two) of red wine during the week

Since BBQ season is just around the corner, I'm sure a few brew will make their way into my life...

Dark chocolate. I'm talking the 80% cocoa stuff. Very rarely do I wander down this path....highly addicting for me.

Around the firehall, we get a lot of people dropping off pies and icecream, pizzas, doughnuts, etc. as a "thank-you". Little do they know they are killing off their local firefighters slowly. I find my willpower weakest at work.

I love chinese food or indian food, thai food is also a great option.

All of these resteraunts cost a decent amount of $ so of course you can't go there every day hence the "treat"

I ussualy have a few "healthy choice" candy bars around, even though they are probably not that healthy..
YAY pepto bismol! No... not... kryptonite

I don't know how anyone could ever limit treats to once per month!

My Treats:
-Beef Donairs (from one particular place)
-Southwestern Potato skins from BP (chicken, BBQ sauce, garlic dressing, bacon, and cheddar)
-Sweet and sour pork, or beef and Chinese mushrooms and
prawn fried rice
-Vegetable pakora
-Beef Sukiyaki
-Mexican food in general is amazing

-Solid milk chocolate

Frequency: once a week at least - more during high stress times.

Candybars are a treat a get every once in a while. I try to stick to about one or two a month, but once you have one, it's very easy to have another. Also when I buy a pack of dark chocolate to mix into my trail mix, the leftovers usually disappear before I have to make another batch. I wonder how that happens...

Peanut butter is my big one, though. I like Jif, the stuff with all the additives and sugar and crap, but it tastes GREAT!! I'll slop a big glob on my bread and sometimes I'll have two sandwiches a day. I don't know if it's all that bad, but I can eat a lot of it.

My problem is that if it's there in the house or in front of me, I'll just eat it, and eat if fast. Of course that pertains to sweets and chocolates, not brussels sprouts.
We should all take ourselves seriously...and then crumple that image up and toss it out the window.

Let's start with eating out (restaurants ). I actually hate going out as nothing does it for me ... except once and a while I like going to Red Robins as they make the best Mozza and Mushroom Burger plus they have these steak fries that are unlimited.

Prior to starting working out over 8 years ago I used to have dessert with lunch, snack when got home, supper and snack at night. I actually eliminated dessert for years but eventually I came back. There is a certain brand of Chocolate Chip cookies that I love and can eat a whole bag but I will control myself and just have 3 or 4 at a time with milk after supper. Not all of the time but if they are in the house then I will demolish them.

I love chocolate and the darker the better. There is a burnt almond dark chocolate chocolate bar that I love. And yesterday my wife had a Hershey's chocolate covered chocolate marshmellow that I made short work of.

I love ice cream but don't have it very often, maybe 4 times a years ... as I am lactose intolerant. And when I do eat ice cream (or drink milk), I cannot follow it up with pop as the carbonation does short work of my stomach. However I don't really care for pop ... though once and a while I will steal some sips of my wife's Diet Dr. Pepper, or we will share a can.

I also like Peanut Butter, though it has to be Kraft Smooth. That on toast with a generous portion of Margarine to make it even smoother and hmmmm hmmmm good.

My wife says I snack too often, and she maybe slightly right. However I will do so prior to working out or going to class so I know I'm going to burn it off.

My treats are usually on a Saturday and it could be any one or two of the following:

1 Galaxy bar
A couple glasses of red wine
Balti Chana (chickpeas) from the Indian takeaway with peshwari naan
A slice of homemade cake
Chips and gravy from the chippy (yep I am a Northern lass)!

Roll on Saturday!!!!
