I have found when I check the nutritional content on something it can be a very quick turn off for me. At least I'm informed and can factor it into my regimen.

Well, the problem for me is that once I start eating that kind of thing I find myself having serious cravings for more. If I go ahead and indulge in the cravings, the cravings seem to get worse -- kind of a vicious cycle.
I think I agree with rockqueen88. I just need to make sure I stop at just 1.

I guess I personally don't see anything wrong with treating yourself to one. I know with what I'm doing is just eating what I want within my range. For instance, if I wanted some ice cream, as long as I stay within my range for everything else, then heck yeah I'll eat some!

I know what you mean! Eveyr day at work there are cupcakes, cake, bagels, etc. Something to tempt me. Usually instead of partaking I just ask one of my friends to tell me what it tastes like so I can vicariously enjoy it. Not the same at all, but I always feel a sense of accomplishment for abstaining!
All I could think of when I saw your title was "What would you doooooo for a Klondike bar". It sounds like you would run the other way now. . .

It was "Treat Day" at work and there were boxes of every kind of ice cream you can think of . . . I ended up having a Klondike bar. Totally delicious, but I feel SO bloated now and am thinking it really wasn't worth it. I want to remember this next time around!
