If you’ve been struggling with weight loss, you’re not alone. Currently, 54% of Americans are trying to lose weight. While fad diets are a dime a dozen, the truth is one size does not fit all when it comes to nutrition. In fact, when it comes to losing weight, your dietary needs are just as unique as you are! If you’re tired of trying diets that simply won’t work, here are some reasons to consider a customized diet program.
Losing weight is not impossible. Millions of people have done it. But it’s no walk in the park either. Especially if you have no prior knowledge of fitness and health. Whether it’s your first time trying to lose weight or you’ve lost count and still feel discouraged, there’s a good and justifiable reason for those anxious feelings.
Weight loss maintenance is hard to do on your own. With so many "one size fits all" diet and exercise programs to choose from, it can be nearly impossible to find a routine that you can stick to. When surveyed, 50% of Americans said that their reason for not losing weight was a lack of self-discipline. While it can be easy to blame ourselves when one of these programs fails, self-discipline isn’t always the issue. Many plans are wholly unable to account for our individual needs and lifestyles -- and as such, can fail to produce results while being difficult to follow. If you’re striving for a healthier lifestyle, the best starting point is a custom weight loss program and not a cookie-cutter alternative.
