If you notice, in my day 5 log I logged in a vegan Red Velvet cupcake. Well, I was craving cupcakes (damn Cupcake Wars)! So I wanted to say that it’s ok to give into temptation now and again. After all a diet isn’t suppose to be a fad; it’s suppose to be a lifelong decision. And who wants to deny themselves cupcakes for the rest of their life? I know I sure as hell don’t. Also, I’ve found that I can make a lot of the foods I still love- but with alterations. I’ve noticed the alternations I typically have to make is cut back on oil/nuts/fats and eat smaller proportions. Give it a try and see if you find any changes. 😉
