Research Says Dieters Pack on the Pounds on Saturdays

Healthy Eating Tip: Saturdays Can Slow Weight Loss

If you're not losing weight as you expected, take a look at how you eat on Saturday.

Recent research has found that people on strict diet and exercise programs tend to lose weight more slowly than expected because they eat more on weekends, particularly on Saturdays, than during the week. In order to avoid this pitfall in your weight loss endeavors, it's important to plan for the weekends, just like you would plan for your week. If you know you are going to be out all day shopping, pack a healthy lunch to avoid the temptation of the food court. If you're going to be at the park with your kids, bring snacks for everyone so that you don't need to make an emergency stop at McDonald's.
