I have been trying to eat healthy all these years.  What I learn is that there are cravings in our regular routine and life. Stopping everything to switch over to a complete diet will lead to failure.

So, satisfying your craving without going overboard helps you to reach your success relatively easier.  That was just my experience talk.  But I also know that there are other people following strict instructions and reached their goals. 

The point is...different ways work differently with different people.  You just need to find one that works best for you through which you enjoy your journey instead of dragging it.

Tips

I used vegetable base pasta.  You can use whole grain or whole wheat pasta.  The chili is very flavorful.  It is hardly to tell that you use different kind of pasta other than the regular ones.
