Loyola Center for Metabolic Surgery & Bariatric Care researchers have identified the top four reasons why dieters don't lose weight. These reasons include underestimating calorie intake, not getting enough physical activity, poor timing of meals, and not getting enough sleep. The researchers state that the key to losing weight and keeping it off involves making good health practices a way of life.

According to researcher Jessica Bartfield, "Losing weight is one of the top resolutions made every year, yet only 20 percent of people achieve successful weight-loss and maintenance. Dieting is a skill, much like riding a bicycle, and requires practice and good instruction." The researchers state that those seeking to lose weight must be aware of their caloric intake, increase physical activity throughout the day, not go longer than 5 hours without eating a healthy meal, and get at least 6 hours of sleep per day.

I do accept as true with all of the ideas you have introduced in your
post. They are really convincing and can definitely work.
Nonetheless, the posts are too quick for starters.
May you please extend them a bit from next time?
Thanks for the post.

I rarely leave responses, but i did a few searching and wound up here Top Four Reasons Why
Diets Fail. And I do have some questions for
you if it’s allright. Could it be only me or does it look like a few of the responses appear like coming from brain dead people? :-P And, if you are posting on other online sites, I’d like to keep up with everything
fresh you have to post. Could you make a list of every one of all your social sites like your twitter feed, Facebook page or linkedin profile?

Please let me know if you’re looking for a article writer for your site. You have some really good articles and I think I would be a good asset. If you ever want to take some of the load off, I’d love
to write some articles for your blog in exchange for a
link back to mine. Please blast me an e-mail if
interested. Regards!
