63 percent of Americans are overweight and 31 percent are officially classified as obese. That means that if you are one of the millions of Americans who needs to lose a significant amount of weight, you are not alone. 45 million Americans will go on a diet this year, and they will spend up to $2 billion supporting their diet habits. Nevertheless, almost all of them will actually gain more weight in the course of the year than they will lose. Most people think that you need a lot of will power to lose a significant amount of weight. Moderation is the key to losing weight and to keeping it off in the long term. If you enjoy pizza or a burger from McDonald's then partake of these pleasures now and again and don't allow yourself to feel guilty. You are less likely to fall off the horse so to speak or to binge if you give yourself permission to enjoy “fun foods” when the mood strikes.
Don’t Make weight loss a battle, make it your weight loss success.
