One reason why the diet industry is so big is that dieting doesn't work. In fact the vast majority of people who lose weight on a diet quickly regain it and more. This is because many people are looking for a silver bullet, an almost instant way to get slim. It usually doesn't occur to them that accumulating the weight has taken a long time. Creeping up month by month, one kilo slips on here, one kilo slips on there and then sometimes after a couple of years you suddenly realise now "I'm too big". The catalyst may be that someone has said something, that nothing in the wardrobe fits comfortably any more, a new job, relationship or simply they see themselves as if for the first time and up pops the realisation. So how can you make the change easier for yourself?
