Can be anything that is related to being unhealthy. For me it is eating too much salt, so many foods I put it on. It is always Himalayan salt when I'm at home, but I know I need to cut back!

What for you?

I'm somewhat of a purist when it comes to butter - I love to use real butter when baking and in some cooking. I'd like to start moving over to something more healthy....

I also use bacon. Not much, like I throw a slice or two in the pan so cook meat for chili.

I recently discovered Trader Joe's Cookie Butter and now I eat it all the time by the spoonful...

Potato chips (once a month), fries (twice a month), and good beer!

more and more studies are showing salt isn't as bad for us as originally thought, This doesn't mean pick up a box of salt and eat it, but we don't need to be quite as concerned as was thought a few years ago. That being said, I do have a couple of really bad habits. I love sauces, especially made with 1/2 and 1/2 and lots of cheese: I also love cheese period. We eat plenty of veggies and fruits, and get our share of calcium, I just need to cut back on certain things: oh and my number 1 horrible habit: mayo. I could put it on my ice cream I think. Yes, sugar and I do not have a love affair but high fat and I do!!!

Talking about real butter, I decided about a month ago to cut back and switch to the fake crap.. it is awful, I tried to tell myself how much healthier it was for us: I convinced myself, I don't really care. We don't use more than about a lb a month, so I will continue to enjoy the pleasure of the real stuff!!

I use bacon in probably 80% of the things that I cook, and I also put ranch dressing on just about everything. I have, however, received multiple marriage proposals due to my bacon chocolate chip cookies.

Almost anything containing sugar. Also love British bacon on homemade bakery roll with butter. Anything salty as well. Cheese.
