95% of all diets fail and the multi-billion dollar diet industry thrives on the backs of people desperate for a cure. Here's a quick quiz to see if you're caught in the diet trap.
Pathological: Doing the same thing over and over and expecting different results. How many diets have you tried? How many pounds lost and regained? How many years of your life spent feeling like there was something wrong with you because the diet failed to deliver the promised utopia?
Mood Altering: How often is your mood determined by the number on the scale? Does food deprivation cause mood swings? Do you judge your worth by whether you ate 'clean' today? Do you identify yourself as good when adhering to rigid diet rules and bad when you binge?
Life Damaging: Have your relationship, career, or health suffered because of your obsession with weight and dieting? Have you experienced the yo-yo effect of dieting? Are people weary of hearing you talk about yet another great weight loss plan? Have you lost faith in your own ability to manage your weight?
