I think everyone has to decide on their own trade offs. I feel that if you're overly rigid, you're more likely to give up. The mental part of it can kill you in that way, too.

I don't think it's fair to tell someone they'll never reach their goals, based on one tiny little piece of information and not knowing the rest of their plan. For example, I don't eat perfectly, but I eat nutritiously most of the time. I'll never give up frozen yogurt, but I reached all my goals: I'm 43 years old, have a BMI of 19.5, and a body fat of 18-19%.

We all have to find our own way through this. Yes, we have to be honest with ourselves, but what works for some doesn't work for everyone.
