Frequently asked questions
- I'm always going on a diet but can't keep the weight off. What's the best way to lose weight?
Diets always work, for a little while. If we eat less and stop eating certain foods we will lose weight. But the weight we lose is mainly water or lean tissue, not just fat. Research consistently shows that only about five percent of us will keep off the lost weight.
- What's wrong with dieting?
A diet means we eat less to lose weight. It can make both our body and mind hungry.
- Can I be addicted to food?
"Bingeing" is a word used to describe eating food uncontrollably. Some people believe they binge because they are addicted to food.
