That may not be entirely necessary, the U.S. Centers for Disease Control and Prevention says. The CDC suggests:
- Don't entirely give up comfort foods, but eat them less frequently than usual and cut back gradually over time.
- Indulge in a smaller portion size, for example, a half serving of a chocolate bar.
- Prepare comfort foods using lower-fat ingredients, such as skim milk or light cheese.
