Dieting Myth #12:

The Last 10 lbs Are the Hardest

Dr. Freedhoff says:

If you want those last 10 lbs to stay off, well then they'd better not be any "harder" to lose.

"Harder" usually implies extremes of effort - lots of white-knuckles to pass by the yummy stuff; more gym sweat than is enjoyable; or incredibly monotonous eating; and denying yourself the ability to enjoy food for comfort or celebration.

Well guess what? You're not likely to live with those extremes for good and as a result (and you know this is true) it's not a matter of if, but rather of when those last 10 lbs are going to return.

I don't know which 10 lbs that your real last 10 lbs are going to be.
But, while your last real 10 lbs will certainly be the slowest, that 10 lbs shouldn't be any "harder" than your first 10.

If they are, you're doing something wrong.
