Diet Fix : Weight Loss with Long-term Results
Diet Fix says that despite the 1000’s of success stories, 90% of all weight loss plans don’t produce long-term results.
The creator of Diet Fix, Dr. Yoni Freedhoff, claims the reason is because most diets are unrealistic, unhealthy, and nearly impossible to follow.
The majority of dieting plans require you to make sacrifices on a regular and ongoing basis, including:
- Giving up an entire food group.
- Using your willpower to fight hunger.
- Performing exhausting exercise regimes.
In The Diet Fix, Freedhoff says that not only is this approach not necessary, it is sabotaging our ability to lose weight.
Diet Fix Basics
The Diet Fix is step-by-step guide to long-term weight management that debunks common myths about dieting.
Most dieters have the idea that suffering to some degree is a necessary evil to be successful at losing weight. Diet Fix calls these ideas “Dieting’s Seven Deadly Sins” and provides evidence that these concepts are flawed.
Here are 4 examples from the book:
Hunger: Ultimately if your diet includes regular battles with hunger it is only a matter of time before you end up giving in.
Sacrifice: There is little likelihood that you will be willing to live a life of perpetual sacrifice forever.
Willpower: Dieting theory suggests that we should be able to will ourselves to resist temptation. But if your needs are not being met, eventually you’ll give in.
Perfectionism: Many people cling to the idea of dieting perfection. When they cheat they believe the entire day is ruined so they may as well indulge completely.
Post Traumatic Dieting Disorder
Continual or repetitive dieting can lead to what Dr. Freedhoff refers to as “Post Traumatic Dieting Disorder”. This may include the manifestation of:
- Binge Eating
- Weight Cycling and Metabolic Slowdown
Diet Fix shows readers how to replace this toxic dieting mindset with positive beliefs and behaviors. It offers a practical plan to help dieters begin living happily while permanently losing weight.
The 10-Day Reset
This reset is designed to eliminate the habits that are preventing you from achieving your ideal weight. You will learn how to:

Exercise Should Be Enjoyable
Some dieters equate success on their program with adhering to an extreme exercise regime. But excessive strenuous exercise will eventually cause someone to give it up, whether because of exhaustion, injury or boredom.
When this happens it can produce feeling of failure that causes them to give up on their diet as well.
Instead Diet Fix says it is better to exercise just as much as you can enjoy doing each day. Exercise is a crucial part of weight loss success. However you don’t need to spend hours at the gym to get results.
