Diet's Just Don't Work

You may be surprised, but relying solely on dieting simply isn't effective.

Extensive scientific research has confirmed this fact:

A study conducted by UCLA researchers and published in the April 2007 issue of American Psychologist, the journal of the American Psychological Association, revealed some compelling findings.

According to Traci Mann, UCLA associate professor of psychology and lead author of the study, "You can initially lose 5 to 10 percent of your weight on any number of diets, but then the weight comes back,"

Mann elaborates, "We found that the majority of people regained all the weight, plus more. Sustained weight loss was found only in a small minority of participants, while complete weight regain was found in the majority. Diets do not lead to sustained weight loss or health benefits for the majority of people."

Mann and her colleagues meticulously analyzed 31 long-term diet studies to reach their conclusions.

"What happens to people on diets in the long run?" Mann asked. "Would they have been better off to not go on a diet at all? We decided to dig up and analyze every study that followed people on diets for two to five years. We concluded most of them would have been better off not going on the diet at all. Their weight WOULD BE PRETTY MUCH THE SAME, AND THEIR BODIES WOULD NOT SUFFER THE WEAR AND tear from losing weight and gaining it all back."

The researchers found that individuals typically shed 5 to 10 percent of their initial weight within the first six months of dieting. However, at least one-third to two-thirds of dieters regain more weight than they lost within four or five years, with the actual figure likely being higher.

"Although the findings reported give a bleak picture of the effectiveness of diets, there are reasons why the actual effectiveness of diets is even worse," Mann said.

Mann said that “certain factors biased the diet studies to make them appear more effective than they really were. For one, many participants self-reported their weight by phone or mail rather than having their weight measured on a scale by an impartial source. Also, the studies have very low follow-up rates - eight of the studies had follow-up rates lower than 50 percent, and those who responded may not have been representative of the entire group, since people who gain back large amounts of weight are generally unlikely to show up for follow-up tests.”

 

Another study, which investigated various lifestyle factors and their impact on weight changes in over 19,000 healthy older men over a four-year period, found that "one of the best predictors of weight gain over the four years was having lost weight on a diet at some point during the years before the study started," Tomiyama said.

"In numerous studies, individuals in control groups who did not diet fared similarly or better than those who did diet," she adds.

Moreover, evidence suggests that repeated cycles of weight loss and gain are associated with cardiovascular disease, stroke, diabetes, and compromised immune function. Mann and Tomiyama call for further research into the health consequences of weight cycling, highlighting the incomplete understanding of how such fluctuations affect health.

The unfortunate reality is that despite individuals' best efforts, the cycle of attempting different diets often leads to initial success followed by disappointment when the weight inevitably returns. This cycle can breed feelings of failure, though it's crucial to recognize that the fault lies not with the individual but with the inherent shortcomings of diets themselves. Simply put, diets ARE NOT effective solutions.

If Dieting Doesn't Work -- What Does?

"Eating in moderation is a good idea for everybody, and so is regular exercise," Mann remarked. ""Exercise may well be the key factor leading to sustained weight loss, as studies consistently find that people who report the most exercise also have the most weight loss."

Absolutely! It's not rocket science! Opting for nutritious meals and staying active leads to weight loss?

However, the challenge lies in the fact that for individuals grappling with weight issues, adopting healthier dietary habits and increasing physical activity levels isn't always straightforward.

Many may have spent years unconsciously developing unhealthy patterns related to food and exercise. Despite intermittent efforts to embrace nutritious diets and exercise regimens, they might find themselves struggling to maintain these changes in the long run.

The crux is to somehow address these entrenched habits at a subconscious level, facilitating their replacement with healthier alternatives.

How This Weight Loss Program Works?

If you find yourself struggling with excess weight... IT'S NOT YOUR FAULT!!

Your current weight is a reflection of your subconscious patterns regarding food. Essentially, it's the culmination of habits you've developed over your lifetime in relation to eating and exercise.

And here's where the Empowered Living Lean and Vibrant Wellness Program comes into play for you.

Through the use of NLP (Neuro-Linguistic Programming), you have the opportunity to reprogram these subconscious patterns, or habits, with new ones that align with those of naturally slender individuals. This means you'll begin to THINK AND ACT LIKE A NATURALLY SLIM PERSON.

SO, WHAT EXACTLY IS NLP, AND WHY DOES IT PROVE SO EFFECTIVE?

NLP, short for 'Neuro-Linguistic Programming,' delves into the study of human excellence, offering insights into how individuals make sense of their experiences and behaviors, as well as how they interact with others.

Developed by Richard Bandler and John Grinder in the 1970s, NLP emerged from their studies and modeling of the world's leading therapists at the time. Since then, it has been utilized to replicate the behaviors and achievements of top performers across various fields, including sports, business, education, and sales.
