It can happen, depending on each person who implements it. It mostly occurs because of misunderstanding on the meaning of diet and paying less attention to the factor of health.
The statistics shows that 80-90% of dieters are disappointed by the failure of their diets, they regain the weight and often heavier than before.
If it is rethought and re-analyzed the causes of diet failure are as follows:
Choosing Incorrect Diet Program
Most of them choose an instant weight-loss program, a tight diet program, in which they eat fewer calories than the body needs. This condition can produce a result faster, but it increases the risk of developing disease. In addition, they become bored and apathetic, which condition may cause the appetite to increase and trigger consumption of foods which should be avoided during the diet program For example, fasting model diet in which they usually do not consume almost all foods except water resulting in a drastic weight loss, but the weight loss is not caused by the loss of body fat reserve but it is because of the loss of water and salt in the body.
Lack of Control on Meal Schedules
A poor eating habit lacking control on meal schedules may cause the diet to fail. Good meal schedules are morning, noon and evening. Lack of control on meal schedules can trigger strong desire and temptation for food which can disrupt the diet program. The dieter at last wants to try a food a little bit to eliminate the appetite.
Incorrect Meal Menu
Portion of meal menu that does not match daily activities may cause the diet to fail. Variety and type of meal menu are influential, when deviating too far from the eating habit and predilection it will cause boredom and apathetic and this will trigger the desire for trying the very food which should be avoided.
Lack of Physical Exercises or Sports
A food reduction diet alone will not make weight reduction successful without combination of correct regular physical exercise or sport. Conduct regular exercise 3 – 5 times/week for 30 – 60 minutes by walking, jogging, cycling, swimming, aerobic gym or other sport games that suit your capability.
