Survey stats
- Losing weight is the most popular resolution
- 78% of women and 64% of men currently dieting or watching their weight
- Weight loss in halverson’s book succeed:
-
- Martin Seligman: what you can change/can’t change → rank ordered in terms of ease of
change
- Panic; curable
- Specific phobias; almost curable
- Depression; moderate relief
- Anger problems; mild relief
- Overweight; temporary change
- Natural weight is largely genetically determined
- Your body will vigorously defend this fixed range of weight: metabolic
changes, intensely preoccupied with food
- When you diet for many weeks, your body goes into famine moad
- Our natural weight may be discrepant from ideal
- PTSD; marginal relief
- False hopes of self change: polivy and herman
- State that the diet industry thrives for two reasons: big promises and repeat
customers
- Invented the term “false hope syndrome”= the continual process of trying to
lose weight while dieting
- Initial expectations
- Way too positive
- Greatly overestimate how quick and easy the dieting will be + we
believe it’ll make an immense change in our lives
- Commitment to change
- Tell other people about it to receive encouragement
- Initial efforts
- You usually succeed for the first 3-4 weeks, before the losing of
weight decreases and plateaus and you don’t lose much more
weight
- Resistance to change
- In weeks 5-6 you begin re-gaining weight
- failure/abandonment

OneClass has been such a huge help in my studies at UofT especially since I am a transfer student. OneClass is the study buddy I never had before and definitely gives me the extra push to get from a B to an A!
