We all want to be fit, but the reallity of dieting is a nightmare for many of us. And, giving up many of our favourite foods is almost inconceivable…
Our dreams may have come true!
A recent study published in Men’s Health revealed that eating pizza CAN help you lose some weight, and IT’S NOT A JOKE.
Research from Portugal published in Men’s Health shows that people who take a “day off” once a week and eat pizza, ice cream, or any other guilty pleasure foods are more motivated and more committed to their weight loss plan.
The study compared two groups of people on a diet of 10,500 calories per week. Dieters in the second group were allowed to eat whatever they wanted on Sundays. There was no big difference in the amount of weight both groups had lost, but those participants who had taken a day off were happier and more motivated to stick with the diet.
This means that if you are thinking about dieting, designate one day a week for guilty pleasure foods. The important thing is to stay within your daily (or weekly) calorie totals and not overeat.
