Taking a cue from Eric Westman about "triggering" foods that are otherwise low carb.

Westman talks often about how nuts can be problematic on a low carb diet.   Even though they have a pretty tolerable macronutrient composition, the foods can be triggering. This often causes overconsumption. 

There might be other foods that effect people in this way, and this might be different on a person-person basis.  

For me an example is Cajun spice on otherwise plain baked chicken legs and thighs.  Inevitably if I use or overuse this spice I either overeat at the meal, or dive into leftovers later in the evening.   The latter being out of an addiction to the flavor, rather than being hungry.
