Personally I regulary fit chocolate/cookies into my macros. Usually 1 whole chocolate or cookies and I am happy with that amount.Which is sadly difficult for many people out there, myself included. Therefore I tend to just cut these foods out all together.
"Palatable," yes, that's the word I was looking for. For me Marc, I am yet to find a fat + sugar/carb combo that I can really eat in moderation... even bread and butter is something that I end up just eating more and more of. Some might argue it's a lack of discipline on my part, though I can quite happily live on a daily diet of veggies and protein, with added carbs like oats or beans, or fats like nuts and seeds. I then just save splurges on junk food for social occasions for the most part.Well, sugar isn't really addicting. The combination of sugar/fat is highly palatable but again, not addicting because none of these alter your brain structure.
I assume that the psychological part of addiction can work with pretty much any reinforcement driven behavior. As pointed out twice by @Marc (both in the original post and the one quoted here) the palatable sensation of sugar+fat is what some people get addicted to, not sugar.Well, sugar isn't really addicting.
