I wonder if you'll get a reply to this, because I'd be interested in the suggestion offered.
It could be (I don't know--I don't know if this will work for you) that the answer that might work for you *is* in the article. What if you brought a dip that you particularly liked? That way at least you'd know what was in it, and just how bad the damage might be if the willpower generator just completely craps out on you. You could plan for a "worst case scenario", and adjust your fats (the real problem in most dips) that day, and plan for a little less fat the next day also, plus a little more exercise.
Or, are there any lighter versions of the dips you particularly like that you could prepare?
So I guess that's the same as "taking the calorie hit", as you mentioned, but I bet there are times and situations where we all end up doing that. There may not be a way to avoid it. Then I guess we just gotta pay for it.
