The good news for people who diet. Scientists say that to successfully lose weight and keep it off in long term, it is sometimes necessary to make mistakes.
People who go on strict diets and deprive themselves of fattening foods on “special occasions” punish their body and, therefore, themselves. As in any difficult relationship, the body rebels and the person ends up abandoning the diet.
Check out this list for some delicious foods that will not damage your diet.
Popcorn is very low in calories, especially if you cook them by yourself. You can enjoy up to 3 cups. Don’t buy the buttered version.
Pistachios is a perfect snack food because an ounce equals about 50 nuts. Even though they are high in calories a lot of fiber and will keep you full. You should always buy pistachios that come in shells so you’ll eat less of them.
3. Black Chocolate
Either black chocolate alone or with nutty varieties is good. Just limit to 2 ounces a day and make sure it’s free of cream and fillers. The more pure it is better.
4. Dried fruits
Dried fruits are healthy and are relatively low in fat. Perfect for satisfying a craving for something sweet. Just limit the amount to half a cup a day.

Anytime you get a craving for something crunchy and salty, vegetable chips are the way to go. Choose a variety that has sweet potatoes, beets or kale.
7. Firm cheeses
Firm cheeses are good when cravings for cheese get the best of you. Keep it to 3 ounces and choose cheeses that are not as aged.

Yes my friend, pizza, only with a little variation. Eat pizza made with wheat flour because it has less calories and sugar than white flour pizza.
A burrito is practically a salad with rice. To make it less “fattening”, omit the rice and use a wheat tortilla. Limits the amount of sour cream and guacamole so you don’t consume as many calories.
Just because you’re on a diet doesn’t mean you can’t have cake. Delicious, low-fat options are angel food cake or flourless chocolate cake.
This delicious Italian ice cream has fewer calories than the traditional ice cream because it is made with milk and not with cream. It is tastier since it is served at a warmer temperature. Half a cup is all you need.
