Why Diets Don’t Work

The idea that modern diets improve your health is a myth.

When we go on diets, we expect to radically change our life. We want to feel healthier, happier, and fitter.

Unfortunately, that’s not what ends up happening most of the time: 95% of people who went on diet programs say it didn’t work for them.

The problem is, these people were duped into the diet myth.

The diet myth is the idea that to be healthy, you need to eat less, or focus only on a specific food group.

But those restrictions create problems of their own. They don’t address the real problem – the fact that we’re not getting all the nutrition our bodies really need.
