    Sure, if you can fit it into your calorie deficit. For some having things like baked goods sometimes prevents them from overeating them as a result of feeling overly restricted.

    Why do you think you can't you have burgers (or anything else) while losing weight?

    Maybe fitting a burger and a donut would be difficult to manage and stay within calories if it were on the same day. Having a burger one day and a donut on another .... now that is doable. Besides nothing like a homemade burger with a salad on the side.

    Not at all difficult for me, not that I actually like donuts though. And of course the size of the burgers and donuts or baked goods (or whatever) makes a big difference to whether it would be difficult for the OP.

    But I'd really like an answer from the OP as the question is a very odd one and probably indicative of a much bigger knowledge or mindset issue than simply baked goods or burgers.

    Yes, I often have a home made 4 oz burger, large salad, and some tortilla chips this time of year. This fills me up and has the macros I want.

    @sijomial are you subtly bragging about your calorie allowance again?

    That would be perfect if I were losing weight. One look at it and I'd lose my appetite!

    Way to ruin a good burger AND a good donut.

    I didn’t realise that you couldn’t eat baked goods and burgers on the same day. Do I go to diet prison now? But honestly, as long as you’re in your deficit go crazy. Eat what you want. Just be aware of nutrition if you eat them a lot so you stay healthy.
