Avoid the Saturday Chump Slump

Watching what you eat, busting it at the gym and still not seeing the results you want? Maybe it's time to take a closer look at your weekend behavior—specifically, what you eat on Saturdays.

Keeping a food journal helps, as does planning ahead. "If you know you are going to be out all day shopping, pack a healthy lunch to avoid the temptation of the food court. If you're going to be at the park with your kids, bring snacks for everyone so that you don't need to make an emergency stop at McDonald's."
