Skipping Meals

Cutting calories is key to weight loss, but missing out on meals can wreak havoc on your metabolism. When you wait too long to eat, your body reacts by slowing down your metabolism and delaying your weight-loss efforts. If your schedule is the issue and you're simply too busy to sit down and eat a full meal, store small snacks in your purse to eat throughout the day so that you can keep your metabolism moving.

Check out our suggestions for healthy store-bought snacks for when you're on the go.
