Avoid Sabotaging Your Diet With The Holidays


Brenda Davy, a nutrition professor at Virginia Tech, conducted a study with 48 middle aged and older adults, dividing them into two groups on low-calorie diets.

And in fact, it did," says Davy. That group lost about 5 more pounds than the other group.Joining the clean plate clubMost of us were taught to clean our plates when we were kids, and the pattern has continued into adulthood.
