For most people, body mass index (BMI) and waist size are good ways to tell if they are at a healthy weight.

Why do most of us fail at every diet? Why do we spend hundreds of dollars on equipment, DVDs, supplements, and gym memberships only to fizzle out after a couple of weeks? The reason is our focus on results rather than making changes. Whether we recognize it consciously or not most of us want everything to happen right now.
