Hope that helps,

Keeping this site trigger free would not help you in dealing with triggers in life.
Triggers are all around us- you need to develop strategies for dealing with them.
I've been to Overeater's Anonymous, A.A, individual and group therapy-they all components on how to deal with triggers and setbacks.
What helped me out was making a list of potential triggers and situations where they could occur and then I practiced using coping strategies for dealing with them.

No reason why you can't have that cheesecake...just a reasonable portion.
The difference with food and alcohol is that alcoholics cannot have one little bit, and with your argument, yes, booze ads on a site dedicated to rehab would be highly inappropriate.

"Sometimes the moments that challenge us the most, define us." - Deena Kastor
On my Nutritional Tracker page, (and it often appears on others, as well) right next to Track Your Food and right above Add A Food, is an advertisement for the Cheesecake Factory, complete with photo of a multi-layered vanilla and chocolate cheesecake. It says MOM WANTS CHEESECAKE, and there is a button to link to the site.
I like SP, and think it has a lot of helpful info and useful things. But I find this a particularly insulting and offensive ad to have on a site where people are trying to control their urges about food.
It's like having ads for vodka and wine on a rehab site......
