When i have a non diet day, i always have a special treat, which is either, cheese on toast, or melted cheese in microwave, these are nice with a large mug ot tea.
When i melt the cheese in the microwave, i melt in 4 a minute, (half a minute extra if not completetly melted), you always have to be careful as melted cheese is very hot (i've burnt my mouth on 7 occasions), the same applies to cheese on toast

I find that if I try to restrict my calories going into a non diet friendly meal (such as a celebration dinner or buffet) I tend to go way overboard because I get into reward mode. I do much better when I eat like normal throughout the day and treat the special meal just like any other meal. The same holds true if I've waited too long between meals, I overdo it.
We need steady energy levels to have willpower.
