The NHS advises you not to 'ban' foods.   Share:  
Thrust of argument: They say you will 'crave' them, then. Direction of resistance / implied resistance: I think that this shows that people are not really being encouraged to become more disciplined, which is the key to everything.

Removal of resistance: I decided not to eat snacks which are more than 100 or so calories. So rather than banning a food or set of foods, I ban a range of values. Unification: This means I look around for plenty of tasty things with the 'right' calorie amount. Thus I never crave what I 'ban'. I don't crave doughnuts, fish and chips, chocolate croissants, mars bars, snickers bars, cheesecake, eclairs, etc etc.

But I've cut them all out absolutely.

I'd say that's a ban.

But it works fine. I become more disgusted by the things I know are absurdly high calorie - the more time passes. It becomes harder and harder for me to 'crave' them because of the 'ban'.

But the NHS are only giving advice. Their view isn't the law or the bottom line of science or anything!
