Does a "Reward Meal' Work?

I learned a lot from a trim personal trainor I worked out with who was very disciplined about her diet (as in her idea of a carb was half of a sweet potato, microwaved, nothing on it). She ate fruits, veggies, lean protein very little low fat dairy: but once a week she allowed herself a planned "Reward Meal" at which she ate what she wanted: a glass of wine, lasagna, french fries, dessert, whatever. But she said it was just a meal not a splurge lasting an evening or a whole day.
Her idea was that it gave an outlet for all those times when we want to eat something we shouldn't, and she commented that many splurges gradually did not live up to her expectations or made her not feel as well the next day as when she ate healthily.
What do others think about this concept???
