During any one year, more than half of all Americans go on a diet to lose weight. For many people, it is difficult to lose more than a few pounds, and few succeed in remaining at the reduced weight. The difficulty in losing weight and keeping it off leads many people to turn to a professional or commercial weight loss program for help. When considering joining a weight loss program, choose wisely.
Almost any of the commercial weight loss programs can work but only if they motivate you sufficiently to change the way you eat or increase the amount of calories you burn through physical activity each day (or both).
