Why diets don't work

Updated: May 12, 2020

Albert Einstein wrote in his Letters to Solovine in the 1950s that “insanity is doing the same thing over and over and expecting a different result”. Now, I’m not going to debate whether he made it up or not as that makes no difference here but I am going to say that the meaning behind the words, chimes with good old common sense. Why then do people continue to diet if after a month or so of stopping they have put on any weight and perhaps a few pounds more than when they started?
