Wait, what? Yes, you read that right. And while Mac n' cheese isn't exactly known as a 'weight loss' food—let's face it, during the cold, dreary winter it may be exactly what you're craving. And giving in to your cravings may be a very good thing for weight loss!
A recent study published in the American Journal of Clinical Nutrition found that women who ate mac n' cheese every day ate less of it,and actually lost weight, while those who only ate it on a weekly basis consumed more calories overall, which led to weight gain.
The lesson? By making formerly 'off-limits' foods a regular part of your diet, they may lose their initial appeal, which could have you eating less of them overall.
