Rebekka

B is more difficult.

Charlotte (Matilda)

I vote B although I would find having them on a plate in front of me difficult either way. The best way to keep my resolve is to remove temptation (or myself).

Morgan D.

B, absolutely.

Martha

B - without a doubt!

RealMom4Life

B - definitely..although in the heat of the moment I seem to think A...but definitely B

Katy

yes, B.

Tabitha

Absolutely B for me. Once the taste is in my mouth, self control is GONE.

sara@coffeerandoms

huh. Guess I'm unusual in finding A more difficult. But maybe I'm deluding myself . . .

Kate

B. With the exception of chocolate (good chocolate can be eaten in very small quantities).

Kim in IA

B here too!

Cathie B

B.

bearing

Thanks... this is kind of what I expected to see....

Amy F

B.

jenny

B

MelanieB

Out of four of us 2 are B. Two of us are having a hard time deciding.

Willa

Both are difficult! But B.

Rebekka

Is it bad to PLAN on shoveling chips and salsa when I get to California in two weeks? (Don't answer that... I haven't had real chips and salsa since july 2008, though and that MUST be a mitigating circumstance. )

Sara

B. Just like an alcoholic, there are things you (I) can never, ever eat.

Rachel

B. "Just say no" really is the way to go with these things. Even when you actually control the amount you consume, you end up feeling sad.

Kristin

B

Erin

B, definitely B

Kathy

Another B

Christy P.

none of the above here

bearing

Hey, Christy, the question was "which is harder." That cannot logically be answered with "none of the above."

Marybeth

WOW! Lot's of B's, but I find A much more difficult. I tend to have a harder time and 'blow it', if I deny myself any, but setting a limit and actually telling myself "OK, I can have 2" fries/bites/whatever is easier for me, and then I don't crave it for days afterwards. I've had the taste and that's good enough :)

Wendy in VA

B

Kathy

If I eat one and it's good? B. If it isn't all that great, well, still B probably. Because I can usually tell whether they'll be any good, and then I can avoid eating any at all.

Something I know I'll like? B. Unless it's incredibly rich or something.

Kate

A Philosophy professor in college one said, "Virtue is not eating any potato chips, it's eating only one."

Sheila

Apparently I'm in the minority because I find A much harder.

MrsDarwin

Oh, B, definitely. Like the Lay's potato chip commercial says, "You can't eat just one!" Or two, I find.

Same here with chips and salsa, actually.

MrsDarwin

Rebekka, not having had chips and salsa since 2008 is a VERY mitigating circumstance. Enjoy your California munch!

Barbara

B is more difficult.

I handle choice A best when I can prepare ahead. For example, going to a party, I can tell myself, "No chips," and follow through and be glad/relieved/proud that I did it. Eating mindfully is key for me. I've slipped a bit lately, but it's never too late to restart!
