Does you eating routine go out the window on the weekends? During the week, the workday provides structure that can be helpful when trying to maintain regular eating habits. On weekends, many things can disrupt that routine from waking later to social events to simply having more time to think about (and indulge in) treats.
In fact, some studies suggest that dieters who struggle do shed some weight during the week, only to regain it over the weekend. The best way to manage this often starts with food tracking to better understand how eating habits change throughout the week. Next, decide on a plan. If your eating habits on the weekend are sporadic, incorporating regular meals and healthy snacks can help. When it comes to socializing, avoid “saving up” calories as this usually leads to overeating.
