I have heard that we should eat a healthy diet most of the time, wether 80-90 % of the time. So do any of you eat those unhealthy or at least not whole foods sometimes? If so what are they?

For me I do have :
coffee -1 -2 cups per day
light beers - 4 per week ???? But not every week.
pop chips (hard for me to give up chips and these satisfy with fewer points values)
rarely-candy bar, I do love organic dark chocolate and have it and can ration it but sometimes I crave a snickers and eat a mini one. But not often.

Also once in awhile I do have pizza or some ordered in food.

Wow that sounds like a lot and I do and am working towards changing this for the better.

I just read the book eat to live, by joel fuhrman, m.d. He believes that 90 percent of our diet should consist of veggie, fruit, beans and nuts.

I consider coffee a whole food, if it makes you feel better ;).

I'm a sucker for cupcakes. And just sweets in general, such as cakes and pastries. Unfortunately, I love sugar too much.
