A survey involving 2000 British adults revealed that one in four men ended their New Year's weight loss resolution the very next day.
Whereas, one in 10 women yield in to cravings for unhealthy food after 24 hours and 31 per cent give up their diet within one week, said the survey which was conducted by a health company Bupa. A combination of healthy diet and exercise would be the best way to lose weight say the health experts. Only 30 per cent of people said they carry out physical activity alongside a diet.

"Fad diets might help you lose a few pounds at first, but they won't help you stay a healthy weight in the long run. "The only healthy way to shed excess fat and keep it off is to eat healthy, nutritious meals and increase physical activity."
