I remember reading someone's card about knowing what is your trigger food. I believe that it was saying that trigger foods are the type of foods that make it so easy for you to gain fat but hard to get rid of. Everyone has their own trigger, yet some can be similar.
Most of my triggers revolve around sweets. as a kid who was a bit on the heavy side, I loved to eat all kinds of sugary foods and drinks. I'm talking about Cakes, Candy, Cookies, Pie; you name it, I ate it! I always thought it was okay as long as I brushed my teeth, because my mom is a dental assistant and all she talk about was brushing and flossing my teeth. but as I grown older, my metabolism kick in and I shed most of it off. I am still not quite where I want to be, so I'm learning to cut down on them and trying to eat healthy foods. Don't get me wrong (I can eat like a bottomless pit when it comes to sweets), but I struggle all the time with trying to resist eating more than my fair share of the cake. I just take it one day at a time.
