Just the fact that you're calling it "cheating" creates too strong an emotional connection to food, which for most of us can backfire. If this is a daily habit, you are probably missing out on some key nutrients by including these foods in such a low calorie diet (not enough room left over for the good stuff).
Occasional treats are fine, and I wouldn't even call them "cheating" (see above for reasons). But make sure you get in your 5+ of fruits and veggies, and meet your minimum protein and fiber requirements. Focus more on giving your body what it needs, and less on denying yourself what your mind wants...and it will feel less like cheating when you do *consciously* decide to enjoy a treat.
