When Dieting Doesn’t Work

Leave a comment

Does chronic dieting contribute to weight gain? Ippears so and it is becoming quite clear that even with weight loss, the task of keeping it off is extremely difficult. It has been known for some time that the complexities of weight loss discourage many people from losing weight and keeping the weight off.  Fad diets have offered little advice to the dieter about how to maintain any achieved loss.

There is little knownabout what to do about the physiology associated with weight loss and regain, but it may help to switch from mindless eating to mindful eating. Keeping a food diary or checking the scale often is one way – drawing attention to maintaining the lost weight can be a powerful incentive to keeping it off.
