I agree.  Cheating has moral overtones, and I can't stand food being wrapped 
up with morality as in being good or bad, or ohhhh, eating that is sinful.  No 
it's not, it's just food.  Sometimes the stuff we really want to eat isn't 
great for our BG.  That's not good or bad, it just is.  And it may require an 
insulin adjustment.  No big deal. (this is not to say that for some people, 
eating certain foods is a morality question because of religion of vegetarian 
beliefs - that's another category altogether, and I respect those views).
