I really think that one of the keys to all this is to really try and let go of the guilt that we often feel about the things we eat. Regardless of what kind of plan one is on (or no plan at all) we've all no doubt been conditioned into classifying foods as "good" or "bad," so when we eat a "bad" food - particularly if it takes us off a food plan - the inevitable guilt creeps in.

I was able to get rid of the guilt right now. Dropped it like it was on fire!!! That has really helped. I urge others, if they do suffer from that, to really work on that first. I know that a lot of people have gotten beyond that, so if I'm not talking to you (generic you), just ignore me.

And I don't classify any food as *bad* any longer. Perhaps less nutritional, but not bad.
