But as we all know, exercise is merely one factor in the quest for an enviable beach body. The dreaded «D» word hovers there at the tip of our conscious, to a point where we are left crying over our celery sticks and dreaming of Ben and Jerry. Why is diet such an evil word, and why does it always seem so difficult to maintain? With so many fad diets floating around, it seems inane to kick dieting to the curb and right out of our lives. Yet in order to succeed, that’s exactly what we need to do.

If you are constantly starting and stopping diets than chances are the diet isn’t right for you. If anything the stress on your body is making it harder to loss weight in the long run. Sooner of later you’ll quit and start looking for another magic bullet.
