In Australia during the 2011 to 2012 period, over 2.3 million adults reported being on a diet to lose weight. Yet, the rates of overweight and obesity continue to escalate.
95% of people who lose weight on a diet, regain back more weight than they initially lost within 2 years. In fact, the research consistently reports that dieting is a stronger predictor of weight gain than it is weight loss. This suggests that diets not only fail but might perhaps be linked to the increasing weights of obesity.
At CFIH, we are passionate about helping people off the dieting merry-go-round and towards developing healthy relationships with food, exercise, and their bodies and more importantly, getting on with the more important things in life.
Our practitioners are frequently involved in research, delivering training, and advocacy in the area in hope of dispelling the dieting myth and helping more people to live happier, healthier lives.
