Having junk food around the house can be a serious pitfall. Chowing down on a bowl of your favorite ice cream may seem like an innocent snack, but the extra calories can add up and throw your weight loss off track. The good news? Not all snacking is bad. Obese women looking to lose weight actually had more weight loss success when they occasionally gave into their cravings, found Tufts University researchers. To stay on track keep tempting treats out of the house. If you want to give in to a craving, make a trip to the store rather than a short walk to the kitchen. Your waistline will thank you.
