I was thinking about the gross stuff I ate as a kid and the one thing that seems to stick out above the rest is this: a left over mashed potato sandwhich with lots of margerine on white bread with mustard and onion and a pepsi. Ewwwww. LOL

When I was little, it was one of those hunny bears. Drank the whole thing. I can't tolerate the taste of hunny now. My son was 1 1/2 when he tried to do the same thing with maple syrup, the aroma was so strong, I gagged a bit carring him to the bathtub to wash it off of him.

OMG - chip butties! French fries between two slices of bread and butter, liberally sprinkled with salt and malt vinegar. This thread is triggering some funny/ugly memories for me. And to my eternal guilt, I turned a friend on to this delicacy, and he was a diabetic! To be fair, I had no idea about the danger.

My "old faithful" Saturday afternoon meal would be a 10 piece spicy chicken Family meal from Popeyes with two extra sides of potatoes and gravy in addition to the two large sides it already came with, 8 biscuits with honey and butter, a 2L of Coke, a dozen mixed donuts from Krispy Kreme and a half gallon of ice cream, usually melted by the end and drank like a milkshake. This was something I did at least once a month, if not 2 or 3 times.

I'd also used to see just how many Big Macs I could eat. One night, alone in my car, I ate 8 Big Macs, 4 large fries, 4 Large chocolate shakes and 4 large cokes. I literally fell asleep in the parking lot after, then drove home and had pizza with friends.

I was alone one Christmas, my family had all gone away on vacation and I had to work. Close to my heaviest weight ever at this point. I decided I would have a nice Christmas dinner without them, so I made a turkey dinner (12lb turkey) with all the fixings, probably 6 or seven side dishes, and 3 desserts. And proceeded to spend the day eating the entire meal. By the next morning there was enough turkey left for a sandwich, and that was all.

Sigh. What was I thinking? Clearly nothing at the time. And clearly, from what i was doing to myself I placed much more importance on food than I did on the rest of my life.

When I worked on the road, for years I ate a large pizza (in just a few minutes) several days a week, and that wasn't even a meal, lol! I would sometimes eat 2 large pizzas in the same day!

Other disgusting favorite binge-food memories include:

An entire canister of cake frosting, eaten with a spoon.

Several cheeseburgers on the way home from work (just a snack!)

I would buy a cake at the supermarket and eat the whole thing as a snack.

Scoopfuls of sugar from the sugarbowl.

Cans of sweetened, condensed milk with lemon juice mixed in.

An entire loaf of bread. Often, I would salt the slices before eating them

A twelve-pack of canned sodas, one after another.

3 or 4 hot dogs (all the way!) as a snack.

Entire large bags of BBQ chips.

Multiple bowls of corn flakes covered with sugar and milk (used skim milk, though )

Multiple chocolate bars.

Need I go on? I'm getting queasy just typing this!

I used to bake a cake and then crumble it while it was still hot. Mix it up with a tub of icing, and you have my dinner. Ugh, I was so disgusting.

This thread has its funny side, but it also makes me very sad. How sad that we felt we needed to do those things. My love to all of you!

When I was a teen, I used to be able to eat a whole large pizza hut pizza all by myself and I would do this atleast four times a week. I gag at the idea of eating that way now. What was I thinking?

Thank you all for posting these stories! As a newbie here and with a bunch of weight to lose, I am less discouraged knowing I am not the only one who ate in a crazy manner.
i can't think of one particular thing i used to eat....more of a general "white diet", sadly....most recently, I made eggless cookie dough to eat for dinner.....
leaving that life behind!!!!

Default Deep breath...

Laughing out loud... but a little sad too.

A whole stuffed-crust pizza was totally do-able when I was in that frame of mind. (Our large pizzas in AU are not 18 inches across mind you)

But the worst thing I've eaten would have to be nutella on fruit n spice toast... I'd get right into it and could almost finish a loaf.

How did I not die?

Bags of Fritos. Always. Or bags of chips.

Or cereal, like Lucky Charms, but with no milk, some sugar and a TON of Cool Whip on top *I hate that stuff SO much lol*

I also did the Corn Flake sugar, cream/milk with even more sugar mixture lol. It was good with Rice Crispies too. And you don't wanna know how I prepared my oat meal in the morning. This was when I was a kid, why did no one stop me?! LOL.

I once ate nearly a gallon of icecream to myself... of course, it was an almost normal teenage girl reaction guy drama.

I never ate anything but ramen when I lived alone. I was poor, and refused help with buying groceries.
