Snack Mistake: You Deprive Yourself of Treats.

A small indulgence may be the secret to losing weight—and keeping it off for good. Savoring a tiny treat each day won’t sabotage your weight-loss efforts, says research in the Journal of the American Dietetic Association.

Healthy Snack Solution: Make room for a daily treat in your diet. If you crave salty snacks, like pita chips, popcorn or cheese and crackers, it’s OK to indulge in the occasional small portion. Got a sweet tooth? Go for a delicious low-calorie chocolate treat after dinner.
