Dieting Psychology
Despite what the companies or social media influencer told you, we do NOT have a weight loss problem; we have WEIGHT REGAIN problem. The statistics on people initially losing weight are extremely positive, six out of every seven people who attempt to lose weight indeed do. The issue is that 80% of people are unable to maintain a 10% reduction in weight within the first year, most relapsing to their pre-diet weight. To pile on further, over 95% * of people gain back all weight lost within three years post-diet, this means that diets have only a 5% success rate.

Researchers analyzed twenty-nine studies and found that after a weight loss program, people could only maintain less than 3% of weight reduction after five years. This means if you were able to lose 20 kg, which is no easy feat, after five years, statistically speaking, you might gain back 19.4kg for a net total of 0.6 kg lost; bleak isn’t it. *Data is on American Public The significant reason behind it is "no exit strategy" Whatever diet strategy you choose MUST be something you can stick with longterm, once your diet is completed and you’ve got to your goal weight you must understand how to diet after the diet, if not you will fail most of the time, no exceptions. Remember, just because you’re at a lower weight doesn’t mean your body wants to stay there, you have to maintain that weight for quite some time to become your new normal. This is why habits and behavior change are so fundamentally important when it comes to dieting, without newly developed and altered behaviors or replacement of habits you will never sustain weight loss References- 1.https://www.ncbi.nlm.nih.gov/pmc/articles/PMC3174765/?fbclid=IwAR2tYyNH7cEpdO30_5-bV2-SVycYxa4OQI5KMxtiIODipUAN1WbcTQ0hNuw 2.https://pubmed.ncbi.nlm.nih.gov/11684524/ Have taken a live session on this topic on the app itself and Facebook page, check out here ->> https://www.facebook.com/Fittrwithsquats/videos/306624994044143/
