Do you lose weight successfully, only to regain weight when you stop dieting? Or maybe you start a weight loss plan with good intentions, only to become de-motivated and give up because of setbacks. Sadly, about two thirds of people who lose weight regain it within the first year, and almost everyone who loses weight will regain the weight lost within 5 years.
Most people know how to lose weight and yet still struggle. This is not surprising when we live in a society where we are surrounded by labour saving devices, travel by car, sit at computers, and the temptation of food is available 24/7. Let us also remember that eating and drinking is vital for our survival. Whatever our culture, eating and drinking is associated with pleasure, friendship, generosity, creativity, and celebrations.
The reasons why we struggle to lose weight or eat more than we need are quite complicated. The fact remains, however, that as a nation we are continuing to become increasingly overweight or obese. About two thirds of adults in Britain are overweight or obese.
