Losing weight can be a long, hard process and whilst methods used in the study mentioned can be helpful for some, using a fresh, unique approach and changing eating habits from within the brain can be more effective for some

According to Reuters UK, in a head to head comparison with those who ate a traditional diet, people who ate a diet of portion controlled pre packaged foods lost almost twice as much weight as those who only used advice on how to reduce calories. The study concluded that the more freedom a dieter has with their portion size and the food they eat – the less of a chance they have of losing weight. Those who ate focused and bespoke diet meals have more of a chance of losing weight.

A leading nutrition expert added, ‘When there’s less structure, then participants are making more decisions, and I think too often they’re making decisions that undermine their goal to stick to a calorie target.’

Results showed that those who stuck to the prepared meals lost on average 16.5 pounds and the regular dieters who prepared their own food lost 8.4 pounds on average.

Whilst some who are overweight are doing their best to lose weight through traditional methods such as dieting and changing what they eat, others are trying complementary methods such as hypnotherapy.
