Why do 95% of Dieters Gain Back their Weight Back and More

Have you fallen off the wagon of losing weight as an on-going goal or New Year’s resolution? 

If dieting were an Olympic sport, I would have won more gold medals than Michael Phelps.

I lost weight using every diet fad or weight loss program I signed up for. I also gained back every pound and more. When people ask me how much weight I’ve lost, I’ll tell them, “1,247 pounds – the same 20.”

I’m not alone and neither are you. Statistics show that 95% of people gain all of their weight back. The New England Journal of medicine states that most people gain one-third of their weight back in the first year and all of their weight back within three to five years.

These odds are pretty daunting, that only 5% of people lose their weight and keep it off. But losing weight and keeping it off is tricky. It’s not just about calories in and calories out. Diets do work in slimming down. I’m living proof of that. I was an extremely successful dieter.

It wasn’t until I changed my thinking that I was able to graduate from a loser to a winner. It wasn’t until I learned to be still and listen to my body. It wasn’t until I understood why I used food and why I ate too much, that I was able to change my behavior to get the ultimate results I always wanted and end my struggle with weight forever. Stay tuned to how I can help you too when I introduce my book, The Freedom to Eat.
