It's Not "Cheating", It's Eating!

               I really dislike the use of the word "cheat" in reference to eating something. You're not deceiving by trickery, you're not depriving by trickery, you're not misleading anyone, you're not eluding anything, you're not acting dishonestly, you're not deliberately violating any game's rules and you're not being sexually unfaithful. That food, that meal, that day, that weekend, that snack, that drink are not cheats. They are only exactly what they are, a snack, a drink, a meal etc. You are doing nothing wrong. You have nothing to be ashamed of. You have no reason to hide that behavior. You have no need to berate yourself or beat yourself up over eating anything. You have not failed. What you did was simply consume something. Your dietstyle is a long term endeavor, things will even themselves out in the long run with all of the other healthy things you're already doing in your life or will be doing in the future. Remember, moderation.
