You may be one of the 45 million Americans who plan on going on a diet this year. We have just one word of advice; don’t.
Sure, you will likely lose some weight in the short term, and pat yourself on the back for all the effort, but your chances of keeping that weight off for five months or longer is relatively slim. You have better odds winning big in Las Vegas. And when that weight does come back, it will leave you feeling depressed and broken.
Here are some statistics about diets that just might set the record straight and open your eyes to the truth.
Most diet studies don’t actually weigh the dieters, they just simply ask them about their weight. When asked about their weight, many give a lower number than the truth, thus giving skewed diet results. Really, when publicly announcing one’s weight, who gives the truth? Is the weight listed on your driver’s licence accurate?
Many dieters in these studies simply drop from the study. The reason; they are embarrassed that they either failed to lose weight or gained it back. Again, this leads to skewed results.
The best way to lose weight, and keep it off, is by changing up your lifestyle. That is, you need to lower your calorie intake, every day and all the time, not just during the diet phase. Your weight loss system should include a supplement that helps you feel full sooner and longer. It is far easier to maintain a lower calorie diet when you simply feel like eating less. There is no rocket science here, eat less and the weight comes off, and stays off.
