If Most Diets Don’t Work, How Can You Safely Stay Slim?

Diets simply don’t work for most people.

May 26, 2009 - PRLog -- A 2009 study published in the New England Journal of Medicine showed that average diet participants regained weight and had a net loss of just 9 pounds after two years. And they were gaining more weight. A small portion of dieters did manage to keep weight off.

In a study published in 2007 by the University of California, two-thirds of dieters regained all the weight they lost plus they packed on another 10 pounds within five years of stopping a diet plan.

After dieting, most people return to their normal eating habits. Eating is stronger that the sexual instinct, according to Martijn Katan, a health scientist at VU University in Amsterdam. “And we live in an environment where there’s food every half mile. It’s tasty, cheap, convenient, and you can eat it with one hand.”

So how can you lose weight and stay slim forever?

The answer may be that you have to change your thinking for good. Mental toughness expert Steve Siebold reveals how to do that in his new book, "Die Fat or Get Tough: The 101 Differences in Thinking Between Fat People and Fit People." The book is available now as an eBook  at http://www.diefatbook.com, where five free chapters can also be read. The print soft cover version of the book will be out in mid-July.
