      I consume a lot of snack foods throughout the day. Cookies, chips, ice cream, and other tasty treats. I know I shouldn't but I am kind of addicted. Should I cut them from my diet all together or moderately eat them?

      I would not say eliminate, but reduce. I know I am working on this. And have had partial success, cut back on chocolate, cut out the yogurt that I like, cut out chips and nearly cut out pop. Cut out beer. Not that I am Clarence Bass but I hope I am making process.

      I definitely need to cut out my soda consumption. I probably drink about 4 cans a week.

      I've been trying to convince myself that fast food is generally unhealthy for years but at least I reduced it. Sometimes, though, I can't resist and order some fatty food (only once a month these days).

      Only once a month. Great. I think that should be my goal. I have made progress and cleaned up some of my bad diet habits. I. E. pop, even diet pop, is pretty much gone. Water with a shot of lemon is a pretty good substitute for me anyway. Also gone are potato chips, and a few other things. I did also jump on the whole grain bread train and that worked out.
      But I still have a few other diet faults to take care of.
      I don't expect to be like Clarence Bass or George, but even at my age, well, yeah I can make some gains.

      I tend to snack too lol. But it's usually because I'm so hungry and there is no real food!

      I don't think you should completely rid them from your diet because that will only make you crave them more. You should definetely make a drastic cut to the consumption of them. Rather than daily, make it weekly, or even bi-weekly depending on the strictness of your diet. We all know that we desire the things we cannot have.

      It completely depends on your own preference. I find it difficult to practice moderation so I personally find it easier to just eliminate it. I also find my cravings for that type of food minimizes the longer I go without eating them. However, I know some people become quite miserable and feel deprived when they don't include some form of junk food. You just have to experiment and find the best balance that works for you.

      I think you should cut the processed junk food out of your diet altogether. Eating in moderation will only serve to reinforce your cravings for the sugary junk food.

      Try a detox, go one month without the junk and see how you feel...
