Four out of ten women who diet end up heavier than when they started watching their waistline, a study revealed today.

今日发布的一项研究显示,十分之四的节食女性结果比她们刚减肥的时候还胖。

The research also showed that a large percentage of women start noticing the pounds creeping(爬行,缓慢地移动) back on just 21 days after reaching their ideal weight.

Yesterday, Dr Ian Campbell of the Jenny Craig weight management programme said: 'In the UK 61.4 per cent of adults are overweight or obese1.

'Successful weight management requires a long-term commitment in order to lose weight successfully and for good.

'Dieting can be a real challenge so setting realistic goals and remaining focused on them is important.

'Otherwise as this research shows, women could end up heavier than when they started.'

The 'Food: Body: Mind' report was commissioned(委任) by Jenny Craig who quizzed 2000 women aged2 between 18 and 65 who diet regularly on their attitudes, beliefs and behaviours around weight loss.

Six in ten said they are currently on a diet and one in five women saying they are on a 'continuous diet'.

It found the most common triggers to start dieting was seeing their 'reflection in the mirror', preparing for a summer holiday or unflattering(准确无误的,坦率的) photos posted on social networking sites.

Other popular reasons include comments by friends or relatives or remarks from their other half.

However the study showed that one in ten fall off the wagon3(四轮马车,货车) within one day, while almost a fifth manage to make it to a week or more. The average is ten days.

Many blamed pressure they put on themselves to lose weight too quickly for the weight gain, which leaves them with a bigger appetite than normal.

Others blamed colleagues, who tuck into(大吃) fatty lunches and snacks unaware4 of the effect it has on the dieter, while mothers who polish off(草草完成,打败) their children's leftovers5(吃剩的食物,遗留) was another common cause of weight gain.
