Treats like cookies, indeed are not off limits. As a matter of fact, I tried a plan earlier this year. It worked okay for 5 or 6 weeks but sugary treats like cookies were completely villified. Deprivation does not work. Working treats in does for most people.

Totally agree with @LUANN_IN_PA
It can actually help a person to stay on track and achieve their goals because they aren't feeling bored or deprived.

"The hiccup is that moment when you make a poor decision. You grab a cookie instead of an apple, for instance."
But, if you consciously choose the cookie and have that treat worked into your calories for the day, it is not a poor decision, but a wise one!

The hiccup is that moment when you make a poor decision. You grab a cookie instead of an apple, for instance. It's that moment when you slunk into your favorite recliner and pull up a blanket instead of putting on your sneakers and working out. It's a momentary lapse in judgement that shouldn't define you. As kids, hiccups were those annoying spasms your body goes through that you hold your breath or drink water to get rid of. Once they are gone, you never think about them again. I mean can you remember an exact moment you suffered from a fit of hiccups? I can't. So now that hiccups have multiple meanings, and are more commonly used to refer to those lapses in judgement we experience from time to time, I have learned to forget them. Because they do not define me nor do they have the power to stop my journey. In a small amount of time, I will forget that hiccup occurred and move on, just like when I was a kid. So next time you are faced with a hiccup, remember all you need to do is drink water and you will move passed it like it never happened.

Look forward to who you are going to be, not back at who you've been.

The only workout you regret is the one you skip.
