Mistakes that Make You Fat!

Sometimes, the best dieting strategies are the ones that seem counter-intuitive.

For example, you might think that drinking diet soda will save you calories and help you stay slim. But research is showing that this could have the opposite effect.

A University of North Carolina at Chapel Hill study found that when people swapped their favorite sugary soft drink for the diet variety, they ate more desserts and more bread than people who swapped their go-to beverage for water.

Artificial sweeteners may increase your hunger for sweet things, says study author Barry Popkin, Ph.D. And this isn’t the only habit that could be sabotaging your waistline. We identified 4 common mistakes that make you fat—eliminate them from your life to eliminate fat.

Quit Drinking Soda Like it’s Water!

A University of North Carolina at Chapel Hill study found that when people swapped their favorite sugary soft drink for the diet variety, they ate more desserts and more bread than people who swapped their go-to beverage for water.

Artificial sweeteners may increase your hunger for sweet things, says study author Barry Popkin, Ph.D.

STOP Trying So HARD

Adopting a very rigid diet almost guarantees that your weight-loss efforts will be sabotaged by food cravings, suggests a new study in the journal Appetite.

So cut yourself some slack. Flexible dieters have just as many cravings and give in to them just as often, says study author Adrian Meule, Dipl.-Psych.

The difference is that they are more likely to get back on track quickly. Want more must-have weight loss tips? Pick up a copy of The Lean Belly Prescription today for hundreds of simple strategies that will boost your health and trim inches from your waist.

YOU PLAY CALL OF DUTY UNTIL 2 A.M.

A new study in the American Journal of Clinical Nutrition reports that scant sleep can cause you to overeat fatty foods.

When people slept only 4 hours a night for 5 days, they took in nearly 300 calories more than when they slept 9 hours a night.

Too little shut-eye may increase your appetite by short-circuiting your brain’s sense of reward.

YOU’RE TOO DARNED OPTIMISTIC.

If you’re like most people, you wildly overestimate the number of calories you burn during exercise.

According to a study in the Journal of Sports Medicine and Physical Fitness, people thought that a workout incinerated about 900 calories when it actually burned just 300.
