For all of the dieting do’s out there, there is an equal number of dieting don’ts, all of the things you should try your best NOT to do if you want to lose weight and feel great. What are these no-no’s, the dieting faux pas you ought to avoid? I’ll bet you already know some of them, but a few might come as a surprise. Here are 9 dieting don’ts. Let’s see how many you already know!
1. Don’t Skip Meals
Skipping meals may actually help contribute to weight gain, and certainly it won’t help you lose weight, so it tops my list of dieting don’ts. If you want to lose weight, try eating five small meals a day, rather than one or two big ones. First of all, this will ensure that you’re never ravenously hungry, which prevents you from making hunger-related diet boo-boos. Second, it keeps your metabolism rocking, which will help you burn extra calories, even when you’re just sitting still! So remember — skipping meals is bad, eating more of them is GOOD!
