Looking forward to losing some weight for the beach season? Forget about going to catering establishments - this is what the experts advise.
Often our friends, and we ourselves, cannot keep in good shape or see the cherished figure on the scales. Why it happens? Scientists have concluded that a number of weight loss failures are associated with eating places.
It turns out that if a person has lunch or dinner at a restaurant with friends, the risk of overeating is about 60%, and 50% - if he ran to eat alone.
In addition, the likelihood of a disruption in the diet lies in wait for people both at work (about 40%) and in a private car (30%).
The study, conducted by the University of Pittsburgh, USA, involved 150 people, 90% of whom were women. All subjects tried to lose weight and carefully counted calories in a special application for a year. It turned out that the environment and eating places played a key role in the success of the diet. This research will be useful for developing further recommendations for people trying to lose weight, as well as their relatives and friends.
