I don't really have a quote per se, but I keep thinking of the example from Overcoming Overeating of the woman who drank mostly milkshakes for a time after she gave herself permission to eat whatever she wanted. While my diet seems more or less balanced I have been allowing myself many more "treat foods" like candy than I have in many years. Whenever I feel bad for eating these things or I feel a little bit out of control I always think of the milkshake lady and it makes me feel better; yes, I ate a chocolate bar with my lunch and a bagel for breakfast but it could be worse.
