I am so glad common sense plans for better health allow moderation and not perfection. I'm not good at perfection. In years past I've been on diets where I did it "perfectly" until I reached my goal - which lasted about 2 minutes! because so many goodies were on the "no" list so I'd indulge and not know where to stop until I realized I was gaining weight and losing ground fast. Even on this FODMAP (high allergen foods not allowed for 6 weeks and then I add them back in to see how my system tolerates them) I have been able to figure out some foods that are treats but to eat in moderation. I feel that when I am able to add in the foods I've been avoiding for medical reasons, I'll be able to enjoy them and be moderate.
