If you're watching your weight but still plan to relax and indulge this weekend there may be no need to feel guilty, as long as you eat healthy most weekdays, scientists said.

A team of researchers followed 80 adults who were trying to drop a few pounds.

The dieters who succeeded lost weight between Tuesday and Friday, but slacked off on weekends.
