PHILADELPHIA (WPVI) -- A new study says taking regular breaks from your diet will reboot your metabolism and ultimately lead to better results.
Australian researchers found people who took a "two weeks on, two weeks off" approach to dieting actually dropped more pounds, compared to those who stayed on a diet for 16-weeks straight.
However the break weeks cannot be a total free-for-all.
You still have to be sensible and don't overindulge.
