Comments: If only all of my days are like this.  I wouldn't have to worry about feeling so guilty because I ate healthy, meaning the portions are moderate and smaller than I would normally eat.  It should be enough to satisfy me but not too much food at that.  I would consider that I would consume just one serving or an ounce or a cup or a tablespoon or two, but that is difficult to do sometimes.  It would be all worth it.
