86 percent of dieters use excuses for quitting a diet, finds survey.
The survey found that 37 percent of women have said there is no point in starting a diet properly as they never stick to it by the end of the day let alone the whole week.
A further 23 percent of dieters suggest it is not worth starting half way through the week and 20 percent will put off dieting by at least one week.
The survey commissioned by LighterLife has shown that 30 percent of women are now being honest and admitted it is their lack of motivation and commitment to healthier eating.
"Because clients change the way they think about food by taking part in a weight-loss programme driven by small group support and nutritious food options that kick start fast weight loss this drives motivation levels - which is something that the Monday Dieter will need to get their head around!" TV's Doctor Hilary Jones said.
"There is no such thing as 'bad' food - only a bad diet," Jones said.
The survey highlighted that excuses range from falling off the wagon because of a bad day at work, too many parties, being too busy to lose weight or quite simply getting bored.
18 percent even blame their work colleagues for bringing in tempting treats.
