The phrase "diets don't work" has been so overused it's become a cliche. Here are the facts. National studies and surveys estimate 90-97% of all diets end in failure. Sixty-seven percent (67%) of dieters regain every pound within 12 months. Adult obesity has doubled in the last 20 years while childhood obesity has tripled. Researchers estimate 40% of adult America is dieting at any given time. Forty-five percent (45%) of Americans admit gaining weight in the last six months.
It's obvious there is a huge difference between a typical diet and a healthy diet plan you can use to lose AND MAINTAIN your ideal weight for life.
I spent ten thousand plus hours interviewing overweight people. The overwhelming majority didn't care about balanced nutrition or adopting the perfect diet. What they cared about was losing pounds in a reasonable time, comfortably and safely. A genuine healthy diet plan.
It was apparent that the typical "forbidden" food diet causes problems that make lasting weight loss impossible. Cravings, binges, deprivation, yo-yo emotional turmoil, bounce back regain, plateaus -- all products of today's most popular diets.
If you're like the people I work with, you won't tolerate the self-abuse a typical diet requires long enough to lose weight. Those that do lose weight are statistically proven to regain every ounce plus bounce back pounds. Does that sound like a healthy diet plan to you?
The phrase, "diets don't work" is a gross understatement. Diets cause obesity. I don't see any other logical conclusion. The absolute truth is diets are a monumental failure for the purpose of weight loss. Using a diet to lose weight is like using a chain saw to brush your teeth. It doesn't work. It's the wrong tool for the job.
Here's my definition of "diets don't work." See if you agree with me...

People always ask, "How do you maintain your weight?" My answer, "Because I know all this stuff."

This page has a portion size chart that estimates how much weight you can lose with minimal portion management of the exact same food you eat everyday.

I eat at McDonald's once a week before grocery shopping. Eat a Whopper a couple of times a month and I love KFC original recipe legs and wings. I gave in to fast food a long time ago. I love it. Any diet that forbids fast food is not realistic and doomed from the start.
Who really believes they will never eat another Big Mac, Whopper or three pound triple cheese and bacon cheeseburger? That's life! It's a clinical fact the longer your forbidden food list, the less likely you are to lose weight. Just because fast food is not considered part of a "healthy" diet plan is not going to prevent the majority of Americans from enjoying it. Including me.

I have literally hundreds of weight loss endorsements on publishing release forms stating weight loss, how long it took and brief description of the experience. I used these in advertising for many years. Something I no longer do.
There are many reasons for my change of heart. The least of which is with the advent of the Internet the use of endorsements has gotten out of hand. I explain why you won't see before and after pictures of Ed E. who lost 108 lbs. in 10 months; Joe W. who lost 160 lbs.; Brian M. lost 140 lbs.; Kathy F. lost 115 pounds; Ceil G. lost 160 lbs.; Diane W. lost 101 lbs.; Richard P., 190 lbs. lost; Roy B. lost 155 lbs.
I cite some of the larger amounts lost, but the amounts spanned the entire spectrum. Here's a clue, don't allow what someone else does to influence your weight loss. We all lose weight differently. Find out the truth about weight loss endorsements here. Endorsements
