Chowhounding and nutrition [Moved from General Topics]

How do you strike a balance between good chowhounding and good nutrition? Many years of indulging in rich foods like duck, pork, fried chicken and the like, has lead to some cholesterol issues for me. I have always maintained a fairly balanced diet including lots of fresh veggies and fruit, but have not always been able to exercise great restraint when confronted with a great foie gras preparation.

Personally, I have embarked on a 21-day detoxification program for starters. And, I am making a conscious effort to look and menus more healthfully. I will try the halibut instead of the pork chop, even though I enjoy pork more.

Just curious as to what other 'hounds do. How do you keep from eating with reckless abandon? I know the simple answer is to exercise more discipline, but I'm interested in hearing your collective thoughts.....
