Why Losing Weight Is The Hardest New Year's Resolution To Keep
Every December, millions of Americans resolve to lose weight in the new year -- almost all fail. Here's why you're better off trying something new.
Everyone wants to lose weight.
The vast majority of diets fail.
Some studies are even more depressing.
Your body is literally working against you.
Food is also working against you.
If you do find a successful diet, you have to make sure you're not losing weight too fast.
If you find your weight seesawing, that's dangerous, too.
But wait, it's not all doom and gloom.
It's more important to be active than to lose weight.
You'll be happier if you don't diet.
Try this resolution instead: take a yoga class.
And start riding your bike places.
And find friends to exercise with.
Don't forget to enjoy life.
Seriously, don't be afraid to splurge every once in a while.
