I have found a way to fail in my dieting that really works for me. Sometimes, that day comes where I know I am not going to make it. My appetite is huge and it is early in the day and I am already near my calorie goal.
So I surrender the calorie battle and go for nutrition. Today, I "blew it" by overeating turkey breast, whole wheat bread, and broccoli. So I won by eating in a healthy manner. Tomorrow, back on the calorie counting.
