I can't tell you what a relief to hear you all sanction minor cheating. It is such hard work staying on the diet while trying to have a life. It does help and I can tell, but I work, go to school, have two young children and temptation is everywhere. I go through periods of perfection and then times when I fall off the wagon in a big way. I agree, I think it is impossible to stay on this forever and perfectly unless you are a monk in Greenland.
Hearing you guys actually makes me feel better, because with all the talk of the diet all the time, I sometimes feel like the only one who is weak and has trouble.
Thanks for showing your humanity, folks. I appreciate it.
