    Candice is motivating the Freud's defense mechanism: rationalization. According this defense mechanism c ontroversial behaviors or feelings are justified and explained in a seemingly rational or logical manner. In this case, the controversial behavior is Candice eating ice cream (many calories) and the rational explanation is: the diet soda sort of balanced it all out.
