I know that my nemesis is sugar. I know how much I can have that won't bother me but I also know that I can't make a "healthy" peanut butter cup because I know if I make 12 I'm going to be over eating them and probably all in one day.
What to do? Scroll on by recipes that I know will be triggers. Don't make them and therefore don't eat them.
Even if you do have them in moderation I would still ask the questions 1. are you hungry 2. can you stop and just 1 or 2?
Some people need more food to feel full and will still lose weight. Some people eat more processed food and some don't eat many.
I don't judge anyone because we all know our own bodies and if we don't do what works we are only cheating ourselves.
The only reason I bring this up is that I was looking at a weight loss blog and it was pretty much only sweets. Not much protein and honestly I stopped following it because it's just a temptation for me.
