According to new research, British men are secretly wearing control pants to disguise their lumps and bumps, and are feeling fat at forty.
More than half a million men confessed to wearing control pants in a new survey commissioned by newly launched weight-loss programme, Eurodiet.
Worryingly, the research, which surveyed 1,000 people, suggests existing diets are not working effectively with two fifths of respondents returning to their pre-diet weight or even being heavier than before, after finishing their diet.
Despite a massive 60 per cent of people having dieted at some point in their lives, 20 per cent confessed to having never lost any weight.
Teens are the hardest hit when it comes to dieting, with more than 70 per cent saying they want to lose weight and a staggering 20 per cent thinking they need to lose between three and five stone.
Independent nutritionist, Jacqui Lowdon, says the research shows current weight loss methods and diets are not working for many.
This research provides yet further evidence that existing diets just dont work. While the majority of people may lose weight initially, in the long run they struggle to keep the weight off. Often this is down to boredom or poor eating habits.
"The research clearly shows temptation and boredom are the biggest barriers to weight loss. Diets need to be varied and interesting, which may be one of the reasons why Eurodiet has been so successful in Europe.
Eurodiet is a 4 Phase meal-replacement style programme currently offering over 40 different nutritionally sound foods to help keep dieters motivated so they enjoy their diet. Helping more than one million people lose weight, it is Europes leading weight-loss programme.
Eurodiet nutritionists ensure that people join the diet at the appropriate phase for their bodys needs and, unlike some other meal replacement diets, recommend accompanying your meals with salads and vegetables to ensure a diverse and healthy diet. Other plans may work on similar principles, but Eurodiet gradually re-trains dieters into healthier eating habits helping to ensure healthy and sustained weight loss.
