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’.
