Every Diet Works for Somebody
I cannot recommend a particular diet. After all, no single diet scheme works for every overweight person. But every diet works for somebody-even this former fatty. So, if you seriously want to lose weight, find a diet plan that fits your personality and problem.
That’s how I did it. Up to 20 years ago, I weighed 185 pounds. By standard weight tables, I was at least 30 pounds overweight. So I started to count calories. I changed what I ate, how much I ate, where I ate, when I ate. It took a long time-at least 2 years-to get used to eating the new way, but nothing has changed since. My scale fluctuates between 154 and 158-never more, never less.
Now you can turn to the other reports to find the kind of diet program that might work for you. And if it succeeds, you’ll end up looking better, feeling better, and, perhaps, living longer.
Getting Help from Others
Theodore B. Van Itallie, of St. Luke’s-Roosevelt Hospital Center in New York, says, “Anybody can diet for 2 weeks with any diet. It’s losing all the overweight and keeping it off that counts. And that’s hard.”
Without anybody around to support you, it’s harder still. And if somebody actively interferes, losing weight may be impossible. A quarter of all the dieters surveyed by Parade said that a family member or friend made it difficult for them to succeed.
One dieter in seven blamed a spouse. (Wives were blamed more often than husbands.) Coworkers were no help, either. And while few dieters indicted their offspring, the presence of children in the household deterred dieting.
It’s no wonder that so many overweight people turn to peers for help. Each week, 500,000 Americans attend classes at Weight Watchers. Probably an equal number end up at TOPS, Over-eaters Anonymous, the Diet Workshop, and dozens of other groups where they lose weight and keep it off.
Dr. Richard B. Stuart, of the University of Utah, found that, 15 months after reaching goal weights, more than half of Weight Watchers’ clients stayed close to their goals.
Weight Watchers started out by dispensing low-calorie diets to its members. Under Dr. Stuart’s influence, Weight Watchers has added behavior modification and an optional exercise plan.
