Part of successful long-term weight management is minimizing deprivation and eating foods that you enjoy on a regular basis. Deprivation or avoidance may work in the short-term, but usually leads to feeling out of control, self-criticizing, and eating more.

This involves mindful eating, which means planning ahead and looking forward to eating special foods, rather than engaging in the deprivation/guilt cycle. If you truly enjoy the food, you’ll be more satisfied and less likely to want excessive portions.
