It's so unfair. Why can't I have a normal dinner instead of a portion controlled one? Why do I have to eat low calorie food when I could be having chili dogs topped with cheese, but then I know I can't have it because it will make me gain weight? It sucks!
In truth you "can" eat any of those things, you just should "choose" not to, and not just for your waist line, most of those foods can also stop your heart, raise your blood pressure, shoot your cholesterol through the roof and/or give you a stroke. Well I don't know about you, but I find the term "choose" easier to live with than "can't".
