I really understand the compulsive eating...If I have something in the house I usually eat it until it is gone (especially ice cream, chocolate, nuts...) or until I am folded in 2 in pain.
Cramps don't stop me.
So I buy less and less and try not to be tempted (a losing battle).
My pouch hates fat. On the outside of it...if I gain too much weight I put it on on the belly and that is very bad for me and my stoma so I am forced to be careful.
When working I stick to yoghurt, apple sauce, some nuts, raisin, bits of cheese and a banana or peeled apple.
When I am very good I only eat salads or soup at night. No perogis, no banatage or fried foods. I am being very bad right now!
I summer in Fla and try to get my health back but will not exclude a trip to N.Y. one of these years. Who knows, maybe we will organize a poucher's jamboree!
Enjoy the end of the holiday
