This is something you might not know: crash diets are expensive. More precisely, an average woman spends a whopping £25,000 on diets during her lifetime.
How many times have you sworn never to eat chocolate or French fries again, and then found yourself devouring a large slice of choccy cake or a hamburger only few weeks later? This is such a common scenario that research shows that an average diet lasts a mere 19 days.
Based on the results in the Annals of Internal Medicine, the long-term weight loss prospects of yo-yo eating aren’t great either; it was shown that an average female dieter loses 6% of her weight but puts it back on after five years.
There must be a way to keep those stubborn pounds off for good and avoid crash diets. Well, actually, there is. The secret is in eating the right foods and performing HIIT (High Intensity Interval Training) workouts regularly.
