I fall into the "a few bites won’t hurt" category. When making the kids lunches, I will grab a cookie, a piece of cheese, some chips. My tracker sometimes has odd amounts, like one chicken nugget that I grabbed while putting their snack on the plate. Like YOJULEZ said, it doesn't add up to much. but overall they do. I see that when I put all those little bites in the tracker. It could add up to 1000 extra calories in a week if I was not counting them.

Gosh, I can relate to SO many of these, mostly from the past, especially the abandonment of goals ones ("I'm naturally overweight, It tastes sooo good". Lately I've been falling into the: "This little piece of this or that won’t really do any damage." trap. Like, right when I'm starting to make dinner I'll grab a couple chips, or a few slices of pepperoni. They don't add up to much really but overall they do. This article is a reminder that they DO matter. Thanks for posting it!
