The biggest misconception surrounding dieting is that it works! In fact, the Huffington Post posted an article about this very idea. Current research shows that upwards of 95-98% of diets fail.

Dieting tends to set up a system where people feel constantly deprived and then end up bingeing on these unhealthy foods, creating a terrible cycle of shame and yo-yo dieting.
