Are you sabotaging your diet? Health and nutrition expert Joy Bauer says that having an all or nothing mentality about dieting will end up backfiring in the end - so if you slip up and eat something unhealthy, don't throw the towel in! Just get right back on track. Stock your fridge with healthy foods so that you're not tempted to order out. Remember, there's no one size fits all diet plan - eat as healthy as you can by following what works for you.
