Find the diet to keep the weight off

Every one can lose weight - temporarily. The problem is that 80% of us will pile it all back on again. But what if you could find an eating plan that fits you and your lifestyle, and helps you keep the weight off year after year? With the help of our unique quiz and expert diet advice, that dream can now be a reality.

The bad news, as any serial dieter will tell you, is that most diets will help you lose weight - but only short-term. The real trick is to find an approach that delivers on weight loss and helps you keep those extra pounds off permanently. In fact, several major studies comparing low-carb, low-fat, low-GI and a host of other approaches found that dieters lost weight regardless of how they did it but, significantly, most started to regain it after six months.

‘It is important to find the diet that suits you and your lifestyle, and you may have to try several to find the right approach. The most important thing is that it's sustainable in the long term because maintaining your weight loss is the trickiest bit,' explains Dr David Haslam, chair of the National Obesity Forum and Good Housekeeping's weight-loss expert. The bottom line is that if you stick to your diet, you will lose weight. But, more importantly, it's only if you eat for your new weight that you will keep it off. The challenge is to find a way to do this that suits your personality, your lifestyle and your purse.
