PROJECT YOU FINDINGS (4/9/2008)

By Larry



*Happiest of Birthdays to Eric H., George L. and Jen G.!!!

*A new national survey shows that dieting is becoming a way of life for most Americans, even though long-term results are rarely ever achieved. The research found that:
-Women between the ages of 19 and 54 went on an average of three diets
-33.5% of dieters stayed on a diet for only 2 weeks or less
-Chocolate is the food that makes people most likely to go off their diet
-Lack of will power is the top reason for not sticking to a diet
-47.5% of dieters stopped dieting because of an emotional event, such as the death of a family member or friend
-Dieting is about more than food. It's also about emotions, nutrition and mental attitude.

Are you having a difficult time making the right food choices? Let's analyze together what you are eating, and let's all say "NO" to dieting!
