In answer to your questions, I personally allow myself something small (serving size or smaller) to have as a treat. For me, I need to avoid it for the first few weeks, and then maybe once a week after that. I'm more of a everything in moderation kinda gal, but the hard part is moderation, lol.
Good luck on your journey!
