Dieting is tough. I the Atkins Diet years ago and I did loose weight. My doctor says I'm within the normal range for someone my age so I should just watch myself. This means I can't eat or drink the way I used to. Hardly any sugar in my coffee and water instead of soda have been enough to keep me within normal limits so far.
This is not the case for many Americans. Statistics show about 40 percent of America is seriously over weight. That is a real problem. There are plenty of diets out there. So what's the most important thing we need to diet successfully?
The answer is right there in front of you. A new report by the U.S Preventive Services Task Force says having regular support system in place is just as important as eating right and exercise. It's face to face interaction that makes the difference. The daily support from a friend or loved one will keep you on track.
This makes sense because you've got to have will power and some discipline to stay on the diet. Staying focused is easier when you know a friend or loved one is counting on you.
