As others have said, moderation is key. No, you won't be able to stuff yourself silly with desserts, but you can still have dessert. You can't eat fatty juicy roasts all the time and in huge amounts, but you can still have them every now and then. Portion control is soo important. My 'trick' is to have a small chocolate every day with my afternoon coffee and I savour it! I really look forward to it and i really enjoy it. Loads more than if I was to eat a whole bar of chocolate unthinkingly.
Also, think about what unhealthy foods you really can live without and cut those out first. For me, I'm really not fussed about chips, soft drinks, or really creamy meals, so i just cut them out completely. Same with fatty meats, I don't go crazy over red meat, but I do enjoy it so now I have it a few times a week but a much smaller serving than I would have in the past.
Chocolate- I cannot live without. Same goes for wine, but i have cut back from drinking half a bottle over 2 nights to drinking the same amount over a week.
Every time I make a change to my diet I think 'am I willing to do this forever?' If not, I either think of something else to change, or wait until I am ready to make that change.
