Why People Fail At Diets


There are diets that work for specific people, there are diets that do not work for specific people, and then there are diets that never work at all. With so many people in the U.S. and Europe that are overweight, dieting for weight loss is very popular.

Reasons People Fail At Diets

A lot of times, dieting means eating foods we don’t like, eating portions thatdiet failure 300x213 Why People Fail At Diets are too small, and having to eat at specific times of the day. In addition, there are so many temptations available that make a diet difficult to maintain. Also, genetics and lifestyle play a role with a person’s ability to lose weight. Obviously dieting for weight loss isn’t normal or comfortable, so many people fail simply because they dislike or can’t maintain their diet.

Structure Is Necessary For A Successful Diet

For a diet to be successful, the diet has to offer a healthy structure that is both easy to follow, doable, and with food that is enjoyable. Most people cannot continuously eat bland foods. We cannot only drink grapefruit juice. There will be a time in which a dieter will decide that enough is enough.

To succeed it is important to choose a diet that will allow you to not only enjoy what you are eating, but also allow you to maintain the diet until you succeed.

Role Of Genetics In Dieting

Scientific research shows that our genes effect the ability of some people to lose weight (for more information, read our article “Genetics and Weight Loss“. One medical study showed that 80% of children who have two obese parents are at risk of growing into obese adults themselves, while only 15% of children who have two normal-weight parents are at risk of growing into obese adults. Therefore, genes do play an important role in weight loss.

Lifestyle and Environment and Weight Loss

A persons environment and choice of lifestyle plays a vital role in a person’s ability to lose weight. Your genetic make-up is irrelevant if  you drink a gallon of soda a day and eat only greasy burgers and fries. Also, if you have friends and family that not only won’t support your weight loss, but actually hinders it by convincing you to go out to eat with them or to get popcorn at the theater, then your chances for failure are increased.

Successful Diet Needs Good Habits

Dieting is more than something you try for a couple of weeks every now and then. You need to change your perspective of food and physical activity. For example, if you know you should cut out sugar and fat, and then avoid eating huge portions of anything that contains a lot of refined sugar and a high amount of fat. Routines and habits need to change to accompany a successful diet. Change must happen for your body to change. Dieting and healthy life style is not as much about giving up on foods we love, but on making choices that are sustainable for long term – for a life time actually!

Nice post! I agree completely. There are so many factors that play into dieting and people dont account for all of them when they start a diet.

Change is the way of life and the similar thing should be followed for a diet to be effective. Cycling with the foods that you can consume is a very good thing that will keep us interested in the process, because if you have the same food again and again it is quite likely that you will start disliking it.

Change is the lifestyle and things like that should be followed by a diet to be effective. Biking with the foods you can eat is a very good thing that will keep us interested in the process, because if you have the same food again and again, it is likely that you'll begin to hate it.

Yep I think sometimes blame the diet for its failure without actually giving it a shot. It might not be perfect for everyone, but at least if they are going to comment, comment for the right reason.

The urge in the people fades away as soon as they start feeling the effect or fall into the feeling of lacking in proper food. I think that this will without a doubt prove to be a very good thing to have some good measures as this will without a doubt have better results going a long way.
