Housecall for Health: Failed Diets

Housecall for Health

Many people who are trying to lose weight use a diet…but some researchers say it may be worse for you than not changing your diet.

FOX News Radio’s Hank Weinbloom reports in today’s “Housecall for Health”:

Audio clip:

You start a diet with the best intentions, but somehow you manage to gain weight instead of lose it.  A British survey finds nearly 1/3 of women see a spike on the scale after starting a diet.  The reasons:

Many diets don’t allow you to eat foods you like, which actually increases cravings; -Dieters who slip up, eating a hot fudge sundae, tend to shift right back into unhealthy habits; -And a diet can actually throw your metabolism off balance if you are doing it too often.
