According to a new survey of people who are dieting, 24{f08af400499f49ebebec43b71545de24d0cbb35d14a8bc084edd71717d793f40} of them say their diet plans are regularly derailed by this. 


Their spouse or partner


Nearly one-quarter of people who are dieting say their plans are regularly derailed by their spouses or partners. In most instances the spouse or partner is not dieting and encourages the dieter to eat or drink things with them that the dieter really should not. Saturdays and pizza were the two biggest problems for the dieters. I don’t bother with dieting so I never stray from my plan! (That’s probably why my doctor keeps telling me I could stand to lose about 15 pounds). Are you dieting? Does your spouse or partner make it difficult for you to stick with the plan?
