DragonFire Factoid: Weekends lousy for Dieters

Most people do eat more on the weekend, even when they're trying to lose weight.

"Weekend indulgences can wreak havoc on weight control, either causing our weight to increase or if we are following a diet to lose weight, can hinder our weight loss efforts," said study author Susan Racette, an assistant professor at Washington University in St. Louis. The research was published online recently in the journal Obesity.

unfortunately weekends around our house aren't too different from weekdays....maybe when the kiddos are bigger we'll be able to get out more. I actually work harder on the weekends for some reason!

I would have to agree. I think part of my problem is I am off the weekly routine.
