Forty-six percent of people said their last attempt to start a diet was on a Monday morning and for 31% of people, their diet was over by Tuesday evening, according to one study. These diets are doomed, say researchers, because they're based on deprivation. The best diet, say researchers, is the one you don't know you're on.

Why Dieters Are Doomed on Tuesdays
Dr. Diet weighs in:
This article is all about how small changes in your lifestyle can yield the biggest results in your weight loss without actually feeling like you're on a diet.
Many diets can be extreme but weight loss that lasts is gradual and feels comfortable and sustainable - which is the basis of the program here at Diet.com. This is a healthy lifestyle weight management program and as Diet.com members often say: "This doesn't feel like I'm on a diet."
That's the feeling you want to achieve when you're on a weight loss program because if you can say that it doesn't feel like a typical diet, this means you don't feel restricted which means you'll be more likely to stay on the program.
As mentioned in this article, researchers suggested the following three eating "mini-goals" per month for a mother who wanted to lose 15 pounds and also improve what her teens ate at meal time:
-- Not serving family style platters in the middle of the dinner table unless it's the veggies and salad.
-- Allowing yourself an afternoon snack only if you've eaten a piece of fruit first
-- Using the half plate rule whereby at dinner, fill 1/2 of your plate with salad, fruit or vegetables, 1/4 of the plate with protein and 1/4 of the plate with starch.
These strategies don't sound like the typical diet but they're a good example of the small changes you can make that can have a big effect on your weight and health.
