Study: We Believe We're Losing Weight When We're Actually Gaining
Hey why wouldn't we? They tell us less food and all this means weight loss, but often it's a joke! How about this scientists? We are told one thing while the body does another?
IMPLICATIONS: "We didn't have the ability to look specifically at the reasons driving these discrepancies," said Dr. Catherine Wetmore, the lead author of the study. "Certainly vanity or optimism could be one, or it could be a real true lack of awareness about what is happening." Regardless of why this is happening, it's clear that the first step in fighting obesity is acceptance. If we believe we're losing weight when we actually aren't, our further health behaviors will be misinformed and potentially harmful.
I think the problem is, all the good behaviors in the world aren't changing the fat and people are being told things, THAT DO NOT WORK IN THE REAL WORLD.
