Making diets successful

The trick to losing weight successfully is to get your brain thinking the right way which is exactly what the DietAssist programme helps you to do.

American adults who prepare their own meals and exercise on the same day are likely spending more time on one of those activities at the expense of the other, a new study suggests.

The research showed that a ten-minute increase in the time spent preparing food led to a ten minute reduction in exercise that day. The finding applied to single and married adults as well as parents and those who have no children.

Researchers analyzed nationally available data on more than 112,000 American adults who had reported their activities for the previous 24 hours.

Of those, 16 percent of men and 12 percent of women reported that they had exercised on the previous day. On average, men spent almost 17 minutes preparing food, compared to an average of 44 minutes for women.

The average time spent exercising for the entire sample of adults, including those who did not exercise, was 19 minutes for men and nine minutes for women.

This means that the average respondent, male or female, spent less than an hour on both exercise and food preparation on the same day.

Paul Howard, co-creator for DietAssist, said “The problem is that our busy schedules often preclude us from exercising and preparing healthy meals so we turn to packaged meals and sauces that are high in sugar and fat.”

“This is part of the problem that is preventing people from losing weight. Another important factor is snacking and portion control. The trick to losing weight successfully is to get your brain thinking the right way which is exactly what the DietAssist programme helps you to do.”

As weight control continues to be a problem in the UK it is vital to look into the way people feel about healthy activities and find ways to persuade people to stay fit and make healthy changes to their diet.
Alongside this it is important to get the psychology of losing weight right which makes it easier to lose weight and to maintain it long term.

The DietAssist programme is the result of over 20 years experience of helping people to lose weight effectively, and uses the latest psychological techniques to avoid the self sabotage and demotivation that dieters commonly experience.

The DietAssist programme helps dieters strengthen their motivation and resolve, and creates the optimum psychological state for success. It is designed to work alongside any weight loss programme or sensible eating plan.
