The Best Diet is One that Suits You

Researchers have found that the most successful diet programs are ones that appeal to the people trying them out.

The director of Obesity Research at Tufts-New Medical Center recommends that people consider a broad spectrum of choices when they consider a weight loss program.

He notes that of the 8,000 successful dieters in their survey, the majority listed "my own diet and exercise regimen" as the most effective strategy they used. Only nineteen percent of the successful dieters had attended a commercial weight loss program and only about thirty percent had looked at one or more diet books.
