I think each of us has different triggers. I know, for instance, that I cannot eat bacon, as I overeat it, every time. I will also overeat chips (tortilla chips), ice cream, many sweet things. These are high carb things, but we have them in the house during holidays or whenever the family is around. They can eat those with no issues, whereas I would eat the whole bag of chips; there’s no off switch. I just choose not to eat them at all.
I think if you can handle something like sweets, then it’s not an issue for you. Some people aren’t like that, and that’s OK too.
