My approach to dieting is that I can eat anything I want. Just not the same quantities I used to. Yes I ate a surplus of food on Thanksgiving, but not the enormous amount that I used to. I still ate Yams with Marshmallos and brown sugar, peach and pumpkin pie and of course turkey and all that stuff. Thinking about it though, this is one of the first Thanksgivings I wasn't miserable after eating.

I have some things I just stay away from. Coke-a-cola I used to drink 5 or 6 a day. Now I have one every couple of months. (One of my personal rules is don't drink your calories.) For me it is a personal choice of making better choices, limiting my calories and that means limiting my portions.

Many people have success scheduling a cheat day on a regular basis. That way they know if they want something in particular they can have it on their cheat day.
