Sabotaging Thought: Oh no, I’ve eaten something I shouldn’t! I’ve really blown it for the day so I might as well just get back on track tomorrow.

Response: If you were washing your nice china and dropped a plate and it broke, would you say, “Well, I’ve blown it now!” and then throw the rest to the floor? Of course not! Making an eating mistake is like dropping a plate. You can stop the damage after one and be fine, but the more you go on to eat off track, the more plates you throw to the ground.
