You're allowed to treat yourself yes, but the idea that "letting yourself go once a week" is a necessity in a diet (the idea of dieting is also something I bang my head at) is one of the most ridiculous things I hear. A girl I train with, who's currently on the Canadian Women's Rugby team was once told by a nutritionist several years ago that because of how much she was training she should have a 'milkshake or something really high in calories' a few times a month to keep her energy up. This was an NSD (National Sport Devellopment) nutritionist, its just remarkable.

Eating bad once a week can throw off your nutrition and energy levels for up to a few hours to even a few days, not to mention the more crap you eat, the more of it you'll want.
