I think lots of "ethnic" cuisines are carb loaded because historically, that's what humans needed to consume to fuel their physical activity - you know, before machines did the work for us.

My trigger foods are chocolate, nuts, cookies, cake, pie, ice cream and similar.... perhaps maki rolls too (thankfully, sushi rolls, like cocaine are expensive and thus my addiction is self-limiting).

Bags of chips and tubs of pudding could go bad in my household because they don't tempt me...it's weird how we are each different.

A couple years ago, I had a layover at Charles DeGaulle (sp?) airport in the middle of the night. I fell asleep at the gate waiting for my flight to Rome. I suddenly woke up and saw those display cases in the airport - exquisite chocolates, cappuccinos and espressos, macarons, all bright and gleaming, with smartly dressed people rushing past me. For a moment, I thought I was in heaven lol.
