tehw shared this story from Prevention.

Even with the best of intentions, there are plenty of ways your trip to the grocery store can go wrong—and end up thwarting your weight loss progress. Here are 7 common mistakes you might be making, plus ways to shop smarter. (Never diet again and still lose weight with this cutting-edge plan that naturally retrains your fat cells! Here's how.)
