If you're like the average adult American, you have dieted before, lost weight, then gained it back. The reason is simple. Diets don't work.
Healthcare professionals who do research on dieting estimate that more than 95% of people who go on a diet eventually regain the weight they lost with in one year.
Yet at any given time, 30 to 40% of Americans are on some type of diet. And the diet industry is a $40 billion dollar a year business in the U.S. and has one of the highest rates of fraud and consumer dissatisfaction.
Diets don't work . In fact, some healthcare professionals believe that dieting may be one of the factors contributing to weight gain and obesity.
When you go on a diet, your body compensates by lowering its metabloism ( the rate at which your body burns calories) as much as 40%. When you stop deiting, it takes a while for your body to adjust.
The result? People typically gain back the weight lost, plus an additional 10%.
