Why Don’t Diets Work?

It is a widely reported fact that 95% of diets don’t work! That fact doesn’t stop over 75% of people saying they had been on diet in the last year. So this being the case what s the point in losing 20 lbs, and gaining back 25 lbs and why do people do it? There is no doubt that there is great pressure over the last few years to look ‘thin’.

So why do diets fail? That’s the million dollar question. The main reason diets fail is we are guilty of falling for the latest cleaver marketing campaign. Over the last 10 years there has been a stack of diets on the market many endorsed by Hollywood stars.

Many of these diets DO work, BUT only short term. They often do produce quick weight loss and fantastic results. The problem is maintaining the weight loss as it is very difficult to stick to these eating plans. They are simply too boring. Once you lose the weight it is all too easy to slip back into your old ways and go back to your normal calorie intake. This will result in weight being put back on probably as fast as you lost it – often you will end up heavier that when you started the ‘diet’.

In order to prevent that from happening as well as making a healthy change easier on your part, you have to work uniformly as hard on your mind set as you do with the outer aspect.

Always remember that a simple change you can make is the way you think about food. Take note that there are actually ways on how you think or your mind set about eating. The first mind set is eating for pleasure. With this mind set, you judge the food based exclusively on how much pleasure it provides you at the moment. Unfortunately, majority of the best tasting foods contains refined sugar that has been manufactured to taste agreeable even though they were stripped of the needed nutrients. Remember that there is nothing wrong with eating food that tastes good. In reality, you will likely stick to your diet if you love how the food tastes. Nevertheless, if you prioritize pleasure on what food to eat, you will surely find it difficult to avoid foods that are not good for you.
