2. MISSING MEALS
It might seem like an obvious thing to do to skip meals when you’re wanting to diet, as you’re consuming less calories throughout the day. However, this habit can actually make you gain weight rather than lose it.
This is because your metabolism slows down when you choose to skip a meal, making it a longer process to burn calories when you eat next. You’ll also be more hungry than normal, so you are likely to overeat during your next meal.
People who skip breakfast are 4.5 times more likely to become obese according to research by The American Journal of Epidemiology.
