Slow and Steady Wins the Diet Race

Have you ever wondered why more than 90 percent of dieters regain weight soon after their weight loss "success"? Dieters who choose a crash diet or extreme weight loss plan might enjoy the instant gratification of quick weight loss, but most end up regaining the lost weight and even a few extra pounds the moment they are "off"' the diet. Health experts continue to tell us that the only way to lose weight in the long-term is to maintain a healthy eating plan - one that doesn't involve any extreme calorie cutting or carb-counting, and a plan that doesn't require eliminating certain food groups.

If you're serious about losing weight in the long-term, you may need to make some lifestyle changes and change your food habits; however, these positive changes can help you maintain a healthy weight for the rest of your life.
