Diet Self-Sabotage: Here's the Top Mistake Many Make When Dieting & the Easy Fix!

Is someone sabotaging your plans to exercise, eat right and live a healthy, active lifestyle? Is that someone you? Incorporating healthy eating habits and exercise into our daily routines can seem like a difficult undertaking because temptation is all around us. 

  • One diet sabotage is you skip meals or cut back too far. It’s almost logical to think that if you skip meals or cut your food intake drastically, you’ll cut out more calories over the course of the day. But skipping meals and cutting back leads to uncontrollable hunger and overeating. 
  • The fix: Plan out how you can distribute your daily calories over three meals and one or two snacks. It’s easier to practice portion control when you know you’ll be eating every few hours, and you’ll help to break the “starve-then-binge” habit.
