The treacherous weekends!

Stumbled upon this interesting artcle recently:

Tips for a Healthy Weekend

Recent studies indicate that we tend to take in more calories on Fridays, Saturdays and Sundays. The exact number varies from an average of 85 calories per weekend day to 115, and while that may not seem like much, it adds up. A pound is 3,500 calories, so 345 extra calories a week will lead to nearly a pound after 10 weeks — or an extra five pounds over a year.

It's very surprising how relaxing your diet on weekends can have such a huge impact on your weight loss (or weight maintenance as well!).
