For Weight-Loss Success, Keep Diet A Secret featured image

Want to know the secret to losing weight? Keep your diet plans on the down-low. When you tell people about your weight-loss plans, you may receive enough positive feedback to feel like you’ve already accomplished something, say researchers at New York University. That then causes you to fall through on reaching your final goal.

When compared, those who kept their diet plans a secret had better weight-loss results than those who gabbed about it because they felt good enough from the encouragement they received.

So while positive feedback goes a long way to keep you motivated and supported through your weight-loss endeavors, it’s certainly not enough. If you’re making a New Year’s resolution to lose weight, be selective in who you tell about your diet and you may find that your will power is stronger in the long run.
