You need to know that if you’re feeling frustrated in your attempt (or for many people numerous attempts) to lose fat … YOU’RE NOT ALONE!
Exactly how many people struggle with this is hard to clearly identify, but let’s share a few very interesting numbers:
- In a January 2013 USA Today article it stated: On average about 20% of people said they were on a diet during any given period of time. Well, if there are 319 Million people in America, then 20% of that is like 64 million people … at any given time!
- A 2012 ABC News 20/20 reported a number even higher stating that 108 Million people were on diets in America.
- In her book “The Bodywise Woman”, Judy Mahle Lutter claimed 50% of women are on a diet at any given time.
So, while the EXACT number is difficult to track down, one thing is clear: It’s a BUNCH! 10’s and 10’s of millions at any given time.
Of course, that’s probably not real surprising when one looks at the high rates of overweight and obesity in America. We are not going to share those numbers in this blog. We’ve done it before, and you have probably seen those. And, frankly, this piece is not written for all those other people... It’s for YOU!
