According to scientific research, people who lose weight and keep it off permanently are likely to:
- Weigh themselves every day.
- When they binge, give themselves a bit of slack in their diets the following day or two.
- Stick to their diet on weekdays, but give themselves “cheat days” on weekends.
- Exercise an hour a day.
- Still be counting calories even ten years after reaching their goal weight.
- Skip breakfast.
