You liked that title, didn’t you? Sometimes we all get a craving for something less than healthy. If you think about it for days in and days out, aren’t you going to go crazy? You’re human and you shouldn’t be deprived of all of the things you love! In fact, I believe that when we deprive ourselves and feel deprived, we go overboard at some point eating more than “just a nibble” of our favorite, unhealthy foods.
If you are eating healthy 90% of the time, there is no reason that you can’t partake in a little indulgence here and there. Maybe if you let yourself have a little nibble of what you really enjoy, you won’t feel the need to go overboard because you know you can have it again soon. It all goes back to the old saying “everything in moderation”.
I just want to be clear that I’m not saying that is okay to eat a huge bowl of ice cream, quarter pounder cheese burger, French fries, and a bag of chips all in one day. This would be considered "going overboard". I’m just talking about small indulgences that satisfy your cravings. So, go ahead and enjoy!
