Studies are clear that yo-yo dieting can cause serious eating and psychological disorders. If you avoid those nightmares you’re still likely to end up a lot fatter yo-yo dieting than if you never dieted at all (also backed by studies). Don’t you think you should do some research before diving into your 2013 “spin” on the yo-yo?
We searched far and wide, but EET Fitness could not find any studies on how much research dieters do before choosing a new diet plan. So we did the next best thing. We found data on how much time people spend researching other big decisions. The results are on the slide above (click to enlarge).
Which of the above big decisions would you say is more important than your weight loss, fitness, health and quality of life that comes from your eating, exercise and activity decisions?
Hell, a TV justifies two hours of research and a vacation 5 hours. Those decisions will not have nearly as big of an impact on your life as your choice of diet plan –even though it may not seem like it at the time when you simply “go off” another failed diet plan.
Get the picture?
EET strongly recommends you do your homework before deciding to diet in 2013, and if you do decide to diet do even more homework on the plan you select.
