Why You Need a Diet Buddy


weight loss friends

Did you know? Research has shown that active friends (with similar goals and athletic interests) support provides the added motivation you need to stick to your routine.

In a recent British study, women who set out on a solo diet had higher levels of the stress hormone cortisol than those who dieted in pairs. And that's a problem since cortisol switches the body into fat-storing mode.

If you can, join forces with your friends, have a weight loss buddy. But if you want to go it alone, eat calcium-rich foods such as yogurt, ricotta cheese and spinach. Research links calcium with lower cortisol production, and it has been proven that women who increase their intake lose up to 40% more weight than calcium avoiders.

    Working out with a friend is a great motivator to not only continue to workout and lose weight but most people are pretty competitive so it drives you to increase your intensity and lose more weight.
