Dieting is one of America’s favorite indoor sports. Half of the people in the United States have dieted at least once in the last 5 years. For a substantial group of people, dieting has become a compulsion, even though almost every dieter has lost weight and then failed miserably to keep the pounds off. The compulsive dieter thinks, “I know what went wrong last time; I can fix it this time.” It almost never succeeds.
Parade randomly telephoned 1,000 men and women nationwide to ask them how they dieted. They told us things about themselves that identified what it takes to be a successful dieter-one who can take off weight and keep it off for at least 6 months.
Based on the results of that survey, we created a questionnaire to show how successful you can expect to be on your next diet. The quiz follows this special diet report.
Important Findings from Parade’s First National Diet Survey
• The average dieter loses 16 pounds when dieting.
• Men lose a little bit more than women.
• But there are lots of heavy dieters: one of three took off 20 pounds or more.
• One person in 20 dropped 50 pounds.
• The most popular way to diet is just to eat less of the usual foods.
• Half the people lost their weight this way.
• But one in five opted for a special diet to take off weight. Equally popular was fasting or eating very little. (Men dieted this way more than women.) About 7 percent took a liquid formula diet, women favoring this two to one.
• Half the dieters in America get no vigorous exercise at all. That means that when they diet, they do not benefit by cutting appetite with exercise. Almost as many women as men exercise. It is the people over 65 who hardly get any exercise. But large numbers of people exercise three or more times a week.
• Women diet 50 percent more often than men. Even so, one man in three diets to lose weight. And one person in four hits the diet trail five times or more in 5 years.
• A lot of people-about a third-found dieting tough because somebody made it tough for them.
• Married people complained most frequently about their spouses. Dieting men got less help from their wives than dieting women got from their husbands. Children and coworkers didn’t make it easy either.
• Many dieters have trouble because they continue to eat even though they are no longer hungry. Women are just as troubled by this habit as men, but those who have the most difficulty with it are young people aged 18 to 24.
