The problem with most people's attempts at weight loss is that they stop eating foods they enjoy and force themselves to eat kelp, kale and kippers.
While some of you may actually enjoy these foods, most of us miss the gooey cheese, tangy tomato and crunchy crust of a nice pizza.
The truth is, you CAN have your cake and eat it, too! Well, maybe not cake, but many other of your classic favorites can be slightly modified to keep you more than content, thus keeping your cravings at bay and helping you stay on the path of good nutrition (and a shrinking waistline).
I've been tricking my clients for years by giving them what they want while having them lose weight at the same time.
Here are three "healthy" versions of my favorite cheat meals that are all under 350 calories, high in fiber and protein (the duo that makes you feel fuller longer) and BIG on taste.

It was all about the ladies for Elizabeth Banks on Thursday night.
The Hunger Games star took in a relaxing evening filled with fashion at an intimate Dannijo and Tucker Tea event at a private home in Beverly Hills.
Joined by pals Maria Menounos and Minnie Driver, the trio "sipped on wine and tried on jewels and clothing all throughout the night," an onlooker tells PEOPLE. "Everyone was in good spirits. It was a very lighthearted, mellow evening."
Mandy Moore, Kathleen Robertson, Dita Von Teese, Whitney Port, Jordana Brewster and Judy Greer were also among the women in attendance who hung out poolside at the early evening fte.
This was a busy week for Driver, who just one day earlier, hosted an Olympics-themed private dinner event in Beverly Hills with Beefeater Gin, in honor of her British roots.

Like finding an abandoned Teddy Ruxpin at a garage sale or discovering a Swatch watch at the bottom of a Trivial Pursuit box, hearing the theme song to Dallas opens an instant wormhole to the '80s.
Wisely preserving the iconic tune – along with the now-retro scrolling opener – this updated take on the classic nighttime soap pulls off a 10-gallon-hat trick: It's both old and new, a comfy piece of nostalgia that doubles as a fresh guilty pleasure.
The secret is the blended cast, which successfully mixes fan favorites from the original (only Victoria Principal, who played Pam, is M.I.A.) with sexy Southfork newcomers. Ewing brothers J.R. (the ever-irascible Larry Hagman, letting his overgrown eyebrows do the heavy dramatic lifting) and Bobby (a still-buff Patrick Duffy) remain at odds, while their sons carry on the family feud.
