When you buy a bag of something for a "treat", remember that it is a "treat" and not a binge. Just buy a serving size bag. It satisfies the craving, but I don't get a chance to binge on a big bag. It may cost slightly more, but at least I know that I won't pay for it in calories.
We all get cravings for foods that we know we shouldn't have. If you allow yourself that one serving of a craved food, it will be much better for you than trying to ignore it. Just make sure they don't happen to often.......

Everybody here has probably tried having a cheat day, a day where you're free to indulge (hopefully still in moderation). Of course there have been concerns about how healthy- and if cheat days are even healthy- they are. I don't agree with cheat days, I personally cannot handle doing them. But I reccomend that if you can handle having a cheat day, that you do it during the week!
Having a cheat day on the weekend is super hard because if you don't work on the weekend, you have more free time to go places. And you may find your healthy eating going down the drain all day. It is easier, I think, to have a controlled 'cheat day' somewhere in the middle of the week.
