Here's a situation for you: You're deep in a diet making great progress. You pre-plan your meals, pack them, and take them with you everyday. You're a stud (or studette?) - no missed meals, no missed workouts... just grinding.
Then one day your son makes pizza from scratch - and he really wants you to try it but it's not your cheat day.
What do you do?
Do you eat a tiny bite just to appease him?
Eat as much as you like?
Or try to adapt your diet to make up for it?
The way you react to this is important, because a similar situation will happen over and over again in your life. You'll be making great progress, and an obstacle gets in the way.
How you deal with that obstacle determines how long you'll stick with it and how far you go.
Me personally? I'm going to find a way to fit that pizza in my diet, because it's more important than whatever diet I'm doing at the moment...
And I know the power of compounding results over time. One small deviation isn't going to make much of a difference if everything else is firing on all cylinders.
