I agree with Michael. I believe in moderation. There are some things in life that you may find are triggers to binges or overeating and you may choose to limit them. I have however been eating 'normal' foods all along during my weight loss so far. It is just mostly eating a small bowl of ice cream instead of half the carton
For me personally I derail if I do try to restrict too much. I do eat a salad every day for lunch but sometimes I add tuna, chicken or ham to it to mix it up. This is instead of lunchmeat sandwiches & chips. I feel this is a fair trade so don't feel restricted.
