A great deal of successful dieting and weight loss lies in how positive your outlook is. If you tend to yo-yo diet a lot, this type of eating pattern can make you irritable, weak, and much less able to resist inevitable food cravings. Then when you give in to these cravings by eating too much, or eating the “forbidden foods” of the particular diet you’re on, you feel more unhappy with yourself and more than likely attempt to “make-up” for it by increasing the strictness of your diet to break the cycle. Frequent crash dieters are at a risk for mental disorders such as depression and eating disorders such as anorexia or bulimia.
