A big number of British people are on diet: Study
Researchers’ revelation, which states that an average woman spends 31 years on dieting, is somewhat shocking. However, before moving ahead it is important to have a closer look at the main points, which peeped out of this study:- 1. British woman spends 31 years on a diet. 2. British women spend an average of six months a year counting the calories. 3. More than a fifth woman is on a permanent diet throughout their lifetime in a seemingly never-ending quest for the perfect figure. 4. Average adult male spends 28 years slimming. 5. Three quarters of those who start dieting give it up by the end of the week. 6. An average diet lasts 5.5 weeks. 7. Those who ages between 18 and 24 adopt dieting temporarily. 8. Nearly two thirds of the UK population is unhappy with their body. 9. Those between 45 and 64 were more determined dieters. 10. Most adult British women don’t aspire to be super skinny. Facts, which loom out of this study, clearly show that the craze of dieting is second to none in British people. On one side, where this survey shows that people are enthusiastic about shedding off their extra flab at the same time it points to the other side of the story too, which is somewhat darker. And a look at this darker side impels us to say that people are constantly becoming more vulnerable to the negative effects that come flocking with dieting. I strongly, believe that the British people should give priority to right eating habits and regular exercise over dieting. Since these two methods are more efficacious that dieting and interestingly, they do have, no side effects as dieting do have. The following words of leading dietician Sian Porter best show the importance of right diet over dieting when he says: But what we need to do is not dieting, but more healthy eating.
