Good news if you find it hard to follow a diet to lose weight. Taking breaks while dieting may actually help aid weight loss. According to a new study, a group of dieters who broke from their routine in two week cycles tended to eat calories consistent to the number of calories they were burning, creating an “energy balance.” Meanwhile, the second group continuously maintained the diet. The group that took breaks actually lost more weight and gained back less weight after the study finished. So go ahead! Start cheating on that diet.
