None take. It just so happens I know exactly who you are talking about

Eating less doesn't work for me, because after three days, no matter what, I am so hungry that I will find a way to justify going to the bank, taking money out, going to Subway, getting a foot-long BBQ rib, THEN feeling bad. Eating healthier doesn't work as well, either, because after three days I crave MSG and saturated fats... well, salt, more than anything. Then it's back to Subway. I am working on finding food that doesn't make me all crave-y, but still keeps me full.
It doesn't exist so far.
I was trying to emphasize how gradual things have to be; Get the foot long BBQ rib, but switch out the chips for a salad(no dressing). Or try a 6" BBQ rib, 6" grilled chicken and a bag of chips. Or something like that. Hell, after three years of dating a vegan I am now just beginning to eat less meat...but only after finding good stuff to replace it(btw, I will never give up meat!). If you can give up soda (or even mix half regular and half diet), that will probably cut the same number of calories as dropping a bag of chips.
