I’ve been talking lots about the 5:2 diet lately. It’s good to get into the habit and it’s a “diet” that is meant to be long term (for the health benefits), however it can be hard when you take a break to get back into it again. I took a break for Christmas and have taken a break again for my birthday. Getting that will power going again can be tough!
Splenda have run a poll and the results have been published in The Express:
The average is five weeks, two days and 43 minutes.
But one in 10 lasts just a week.
Seeing themselves in a photo or reflected in a shop window was the top reason women gave for going on a diet. And craving for treats like chocolates or crisps was the biggest cause of failure.
Almost a third revealed they had put weight on during a diet.
I’m actually quite impressed that the average is five weeks! My previous history with diets was not good….the average was more like a few days!
How long is your average?
