1. How to lose weight, no diet required
Regretting weekend excesses? Don’t sweat it. Turns out Saturdays and Sundays are the best days to indulge without the bulge. In a recent study, U.S. and Finnish researchers discovered that people who stay slim tend to follow structured eating patterns; they focus on healthy foods during the week and allow for mini indulgences on the weekend. “It’s important to notice these rhythms for successful weight loss,” says lead researcher Brian Wansink.
Bottom line: When it comes to managing weight, eating healthily Monday to Friday matters more to your waistline than small weekend splurges.
