“Everything in moderation,” they say, but how much is moderation exactly? One donut a day, or a dozen over a week? Instead of relying on an overused, vague mantra, look at decisions to “cheat on your diet” in terms of risk versus reward to make better judgment calls on “treating yo’self!”
Choose wisely in social situations. I still get grief about my eating choice because I turned down donuts. Pastries in general are not a good idea for my cholesterol, but even knowing that – people still manage to take things personally.
