I allow myself a small amount of dark chocolate when I am craving it. Better a little than to suddenly lose control and a bag of cookies later....

I really haven't given up any foods, I just try and have certain ones in moderation and not to often, especially sweets.

Gosh, I have several, but limit some (like a baked goodie treat) to the weekend. However, I have not, and will not anytime soon, given up my diet coke. I will one day as I know there are better things for me, but not right now. I do also drink my water, but for me, I like the carbonation.

Soda is my weakness! Pepsi is my absolutly favorite, so if I do drink soda, I only drink Pepsi. If we go out to eat and they have Coke, I'll drink water and save my indulgence for another day.

I havent given up any foods that I like to eat. I just eat them in moderation now. I still like to have a can of coke every couple of days, and I still like to eat desserts every night as long as it fits into my nutrition tracker without making me go over, this has seemed to work the best for me. Now I dont feel like I am 'dieting' so much as having some self control.

Mine is Green Tea. I started drinking it instead of coffee. Now I'm drinking way too much. I am drinking about 126 oz. a day [7 18 oz. bottles] plus 32 to 64 oz. of water.

Sweets-I cannot give up sweets entirely! I try to make them good sweets-apples with peanut butter, things like that, but I let myself have an occasional treat, just to keep myself sane.

Caffiene...yep thats gotta be it. I too drink coffee and I have been able to cut out the soda (maybe have one every so often but not everyday).

For me, it's a glass of wine with dinner, and sometimes one before dinner for "cocktails" with hubby. If I'm feeling I need to cut calories, I'll treat myself with Perrier or San Pellegrino sparkling water and a lime as my cocktail. I count it on myNutrition & work it into the total.

What I have for dessert varies, and is usually relatively healthy (fruit based desserts, frozen yogurt, chocolate pudding made with skim milk, a small portion of a reasonably healthy version of a traditional dessert...), so I don't feel guilty about it and it definitely fits in my plan.
But the fact remains that while I almost never eat fast food, I don't drink any soda, I almost never have chips and other high fat snacks, and I've cut back quite a bit on how often I drink... I have dessert EVERY day, and I mean EVERY day. =D

I am a MARATHONER!!! Tacoma City Marathon (3 May 09) - 3:49:13 ... and I'm BOSTON BOUND!!!! Capital City Marathon (16 May 10) - 3:36:52
...and instead of running Boston, I had a kid! And then 2.5 years later I had another one. BUT, I've never stopped running or racing!
One of these days, I'll re-qualify for Boston. And tackle Goofy's Race and a Half. Maybe an ultra. Or a half Ironman...

I've had some indulgences since I've started; birthday cake, celebratory dinner, couple of glasses of wine, chocolate, etc. I've usually managed to fit them into my nutrition tracker though, or at least not gone over by much. To me, that's just life. If I let myself feel too deprived, I probably would just quit!!!

Frozen yogurt or light ice cream. I have it probably 4 to 5 days a week, but now I only have one serving (1/2 cup) a day. I top it with one cup of mixed berries, and that helps satisfy my sweet tooth.

I've eliminated all refined foods from my diet - 2 years now. And feel so so so so much better. But I still let myself eat too many nuts. Not talking a handful here. I can down a whole bag. I know nuts have good fat, are a good source of protein, etc. But "bingeing is bingeing" :-) Stephanie

For me it's dark chocolate. I eat it almost every day.

Do you have one thing that you still indulge in?
Mine remains coffee - I know I drink too much of it. I have switche to half-caff hoping that makes some difference. But, caffeine remains my one indulgence.
