You exercise. You calorie count. You do everything you can possibly think of to rid those extra pounds. Yet, every time you step on the scale you feel like throwing it out the window because nothing seems to change. Fact is, some of the things you do every day could be getting in the way of your weight goal and you don’t even know it. Below are some of the things you likely never considered would get in the way of a slimmer you. But they do. And once you eliminate them from your routine you will be well on your way to a leaner and healthier you.
Cash or Credit
Bet you never thought of this – but if you use a credit card when grocery shopping you are more likely to buy more unhealthy, calorie-dense food than if you used cash. Since you don’t feel the immediate hit on your wallet, many grocery shoppers tend to buy extra junk food and treats as impulse buys. These extra purchases are also likely to increase if you go shopping on an empty stomach.
