Losing weight isn’t always hard. You can follow any trendy diet or commercial weight-loss program and possibly lose unwanted pounds quickly. Though these programs may help you lose weight fast, you may find these diets difficult to follow long-term and struggle to keep the weight off.
Long-term weight loss is more challenging because it requires a lifestyle change. Most weight-loss programs focus only on what you eat. Though diet is an integral part of any weight-loss program, it’s not the only factor that influences your weight.
Genetics, hormones, medications, diseases, and behaviors all affect your weight and the long-term success of your weight-loss efforts.
