Many diet plans are doomed from the start – the reason being that dieters tend to adopt the wrong strategies, often planning to ditch their favourite foods and replace them with less-desirable options, new research has revealed.
A study published in the journal Psychology and Marketing says successful dieters focus on adding healthy foods and reveals that health-plan successes are determined by approach or avoidance strategies. “Our research shows that instead of creating rules to avoid one’s favourite treats, dieters should focus on eating healthy foods that they enjoy,” said Meredith David, Assistant Professor at Baylor University in the US
Dieters who restrict themselves from consuming the foods they love most may be setting themselves up for failure. Instead, they may be better off by allowing occasional “treats” and focusing attention on healthy foods, revealed the study.
