5 *Innocent* Dieting Mistakes That Make You Fat !

Do it right...

1. You think of big low-cal meal as a light snack - low-calorie foods are great for dieters only if you eat the right amount. If you eat too large of a serving, they're no longer considered low-cal; so it's important to pay attention to how much you're eating.
