Hey there,

from time to time, I have a cheat moment when I'm giving up and go out to the local store and buy everything I like. Mostly, way too much - like yesterday, a bag of gummy bears, ben&jerrys, chocolate, you name it. I really feel bad about this, and after some bites, I'm full. But afterwards, I'm not sure what to do with all the stuff I bought - throw it away? It was so much money! :D Can't give it away to anyone here. Finish it? But it's so bad for me. Tell me what to do and why I'm a lazy sloth and always buy that crap again, please :D

Haha I love this! I ate some, threw some away, the last bag I'll give to a friend tonight cause it's the only person I'll see today. I'm obviously not the only one thinking about giving SAD-food to people I don't like so they get fat and sick without knowing. Haha :D

Call me an optimist, but I think you should give them to somebody you dislike, win-win-win. Helps you get rid of your candy, potentially sickens or kills your enemies and may even make them like you more given this attempt on their life fails you may find it easier to try something else to finish them off in the future.

Not sure what all these other posters are thinking, throwing it away or eating it seem like the worst possible options.

Alternatively you can burn them for warmth, throw them at children to keep them off your lawn ( YMMV, didn't work for me ) or just use them to ward off other healthy people crowding your favorite local health establishments. ( Be careful with this one, anorexic girls have been known to flee at the mere scent of candy, BE RESPONSIBLE and make sure there is no traffic near by that they may run into )

Bring it to work and leave it on the kitchen counter. Someone will happily eat it. Or find a homeless person - they certainly could use the extra. If it's hard candy that won't expire before Holloween, store it away and hand it out at Holloween.

Throw it away, and then pretend like the feeling from wasting is some sort of natural environmental pressure driving you away from eating that food next time because it makes you "sick". Then it's not wasting. It's a helpful part of your health subscription, which will return benefit in the long run.

It's the same idea if you inadvertently order a meal and end up with a side of pasta. Oh no, do I waste this portion now? Well at that point, it's a cost either way. You already paid for it, but you'll pay more to eat it. Further analogy: If you invest in a stock that turns out to be bad, do you sell it now to cut your loss and reinvest somewhere else for a potential quicker gain, or do you forgo the current gain in order to hold the bad stock in hopes that it goes back to even? I say cut your loss and move on.

On a different note, it's usually not too hard to find someone that loves junk SAD food that's outside your paleo circle. Make their day—win win.

This took a masochism twist at the end there! I even gave you the Paleo's eye brow raise.

I'm old school when it comes to this approach..if I buy it, I eat it, and I eat it until it's gone.(See - https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=KgRdnhHZ0fo and go to 04:55)

When I want a cheat, which, I hate calling it cheating, but, I make a version of the thing I use to buy at the store, at home, and try to alter some of the ingredients and I find I enjoy it that much more. It doesn't work for everything obviously, but I can make a much better coconut cream pie than the store, hands DOWN.

There, sort of an answer, but I'm not going to accost you, cause that's what you want...punishment, and that's not what Paleo is...Paleo is about being right, and to crush your enemies, see them driven before you, and to hear the lamentation of their women.

Truth.
