You can lose weight by eating pizza

How to lose weightWe all prefer to be fit, but the reality is that dieting is a nightmare as many of us. Giving up many of our favorite foods is about inconceivable…until now.

Motivate yourself by making one day as a cheat day

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 is more motivated and more committed to their weight loss plan.

The study compared 2 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 by weight both groups had lost, but those participants who had taken a day off were happier and more motivated to follow the diet.

These means that if you’re thinking about dieting, designate one day a week as guilty pleasure foods. The important thing is to stay within your daily (or weekly) calorie totals and not overeat.
