Most people would agree that you are usually more successful with a diet if you have family members who are also dieting, a work-out buddy or if you clean out your cupboards of all junk food. But what other aspects affect your ability to achieve weight loss goals?
According to a recent study published in The Journal of Black Psychology, your location and level of dieting experience has an impact on your success. The researchers found that African American women who were less experienced with weight loss, and who met with a weight loss program group at a church, were more successful than those who were more experienced or who met at a different location.
“Church-based groups have a built-in social support system that allows members to see each other, check in, and follow up on behavior changes,” explained the the study authors.
If you are hoping to lose weight, try meeting a support group at a church or similar location. Also, consider taking an all-natural appetite suppressant from Dr. Newton’s Naturals.
