Maybe this would work for people who are contemplating a high-carb cheat as a way of making the cost of the cheat more tangible.

Go to your wallet, take out two $20 bills, and rip them up. You are setting yourself back half a week, and that is the cost of food for half a week or so.

If you are willing to do that, go ahead and cheat!
That is exactly what keeps me from cheating and I don't even spend as much since I do alternatives.
