A study from Harvard Business School found that shoppers who brought their own bags to the grocery store were more likely to buy junk food than those who didn't. Researchers suspect that we feel entitled to reward ourselves with a treat (like cookies, chips, candy, or ice cream) when we've made such an Earth-friendly choice. That doesn't mean you should switch back to plastic, though: Combat those impulse buys by thinking of your bag-toting habit as the status quo, not an extraordinary good deed. (If you struggle at the grocery store, here are 7 shopping tips from women who've lost over 50 pounds.)

You obsess about one kind of nutrient.

Low-carb and low-fat diets abound, but scaling way back on either nutrient is not an ideal strategy for weight loss. Studies show that eating low-fat dairy can make us binge on carbs and that low-fat labeling on food packages can make us eat 50% more of that food than if there was no label claim at all. Fat keeps us full, and getting it out of your diet will only leave your stomach grumbling. And while drastically cutting carbs for a period of timecanresult in quick weight loss, reintroducing them will likely make you gain it right back, experts say.

Here comes the broken record: Your best bet is still a variety of fresh, whole foods, and no crazy restrictions on any one nutrient. (Don't fall into the low-fat diet craze.

You buy tons of "health" foods.

Research published in theJournal of Marketing Researchfound that "fitness branding" on food products—when words like "fit" or "healthy" appear on the packaging—caused people to eat more of that food and exercise less later on. Authors suspect that we tend to view "fit" foods as a substitute for exercise. Don't forget: No food, no matter how healthy, can stand in for a good old-fashioned sweat session. (Plus, there are tons of foods that are marketed as healthy even though they totally aren't.)
