In brief: In moderation
Do you mean with food? Willpower acts like a muscle.
If you use it too much it tires out. It's also likely to get worn out if you try to use it when you're hungry or tired. So get enough sleep and eat small meals or 3 meals and 2 snacks throughout the day. Don't deprive yourself completely of foods you like, just take smaller portions. Don't kick yourself if you eat more than you think you should.
