If you're like me, part of what caused your weight gain is an "all or nothing" mentality. I can't count how many times I said to myself, "I blew my diet, so I might as well eat whatever I want now." I no longer think like that. I plan my meals and allow for decadence here and there. I have found I can eat what I want if I practice moderation. This works for me. If anything, it prevents a binge because I don't feel deprived.
