10 Worst Habits Destroying Your Diet

If you’re having problems losing weight or keeping it off, you may have one or more “fat habits”—those daily behaviors, choices, and actions that are keeping you out of your skinny jeans. Here are 10 of the worst habits and how you can kick them now! By: Julie Upton, MS, RD and Katherine Brooking, MS, RD, authors of "The Real Skinny: Appetite for Health’s 101 Fat Habits and Slim Solutions"

Fat Habit 1: Overdoing “Diet” Foods and Beverages

Slim Solution: There’s no “special” diet food or beverage that can equal long-term successful weight loss. In fact, all you need are natural, good-for-you, wholesome foods like fruits, veggies, whole grains, and lean proteins to help you peel off pounds.

Many dieters get stuck on using pricey diet foods, sugar substitutes, diet sodas, and other calorie-reduced items that aren’t a solution for successful long-term weight loss. Studies show that diet foods may even make it harder to reduce cravings for sweets, so use “diet” foods sparingly.
