The Real Reason You May Not Be Losing Weight

The exercise-more, eat-more attitude
can backfire, according to a recent
study. After 328 overweight women
exercised for six months, those who had
worked out for 190 minutes a week lost
the same amount of weight on average
as those who exercised just 70 minutes.
"The frequent exercisers said they felt
entitled to eat more," says lead study
author Tim Church, M.D., director
of preventive-medicine research
at the Pennington Biomedical
Research Center in Baton Rouge,
Louisiana. Reward yourself with
a hot bath instead. After all,
what you really deserve is to
see your work pay off.
