Cheat Meals and Snacks
A very restrictive diet is too dangerous. Usually after a strict meal plan in place the person become hyper- focused on what not eat, and they don’t enjoy the food they are eating. Cheat meals have been treated as rewards, but this line of thinking is also bad.
Eventually most strict diets backfire and fail, resulting in overeating especially on junk foods.
Snacks and small meals can provide enough enjoyment when done well. A small amount of candy or ice cream is fine. Don’t make cheat meals a time of worship or time of punishment. It’s wise to let things fall into place.
