Why is dieting so difficult? (video)

May 4, 2016

Anyone who’s ever tried to lose weight will recognize this pattern: You reduce your food intake and try to exercise more. You lose a few pounds at first, but then stall out before hitting your goal. When you return to your pre-diet eating routine, you gain back the weight you lost — and more.

Sound familiar? Don’t beat yourself up too badly — much of this is outside of your control. Sharp Mesa Vista Hospital dietitian and nutritionist Amy Ornelas describes the role genetics and biology play in weight loss (see video above), and explains why diets often don’t work.

Losing weight is difficult and not every program works for everybody. Learn more about Sharp’s personalized weight loss options.
