If you plan on ditching your diet you might as well go out in style.

We've all been there, a wedding, a vacation or something like that has given you a reason to get on a diet.

We've also been at that point in the diet when you just can't eat another forkful of kale.

So what do you do? That's when you tell your diet "look it's been fun but I decided you're boring and horrible, and I've decided to eat things that are fun."

If you're telling your diet "we need talk," you should probably start at one of the 10 Rockford area restaurants.
