Did your last diet outlast the average? See the diet stats here

Posted May 31st, 2014 @ 1:38am

Did you start a diet on Monday that's STILL going today?  If so, congratulations . . . you just beat the odds.



The average diet fails within 59 hours, according to a new survey.



That means if you start your diet with breakfast on Monday morning, odds are you'll have given up by dinner on Wednesday.



And that's not just disappointing because the diet failed . . . it's also disappointing because the majority of people prepare to start a diet by BINGING the night before.   69% say they eat more than usual the night before they're starting a diet.



38% of women say they start about 12 diets a year that fail.
