Why Diets Don’t Always Work

SmartShape Weight Loss Centre

Most diets may succeed in the short-term but fail over the long-term. Research shows no matter what size you are diets can make you hungry and create powerful cravings for the foods you are trying to avoid.

  1. Yes, you may lose weight, but research shows about 95% of people who need to lose significant weight regain the weight in 1-5 years. Restrictive diets can lead to overeating or binging. Dieting can slow your metabolism which makes it even harder to lose weight.
  2. Some fad diets can even be harmful. They may lack nutrients that are required for your body and may not teach you much about healthy eating or the smaller portion sizes required for a sustained weight loss. When you complete your diet many people simply go back to eating the way they did before the diet and risk regaining their weight and possibly even more.
  3. Some overly restrictive diets can take the pleasure out of eating. You may struggle to incorporate the diet into your regular social and family life.
