Think you know what's best for you when it comes to a diet? Nope. Turns out having someone else tell you what to eat could be the key to weight loss, according to a new study in the Annals of Internal Medicine.
Researchers gathered up a group of people and put them all on diets. Half of them got to pick their diet, the other half were instructed to follow a certain plan and had no say in the matter. They expected the people who chose their own eating plan to be more inclined to stick to it and to drop more lbs—but the opposite was true. People who were assigned to a diet lost more weight (an average of 2.2 pounds more) than those who chose their own.
It may be that you're more likely to overeat if you choose a diet that emphasizes foods you like, say researchers. (What, going Paleo so you can treat yourself to steak every night isn't a good idea?) Another possibility is that having someone else decide your diet has a sort of "personal trainer" effect—meaning, you're more likely to stick to a plan if you're told what to do.
So if you're looking to lose a few pounds to feel better in your bikini, taking orders from a nutritionist (or maybe even just a bossy friend) could be your best bet for success.
