This article was a review that highlighted the importance of adherence to a diet to its eventual success. In other words, how important is it to stick to the diet you choose to follow for weight loss?

In the introduction, the authors used several examples to illustrate the strong link between adherence to any given diet (regardless of macronutrient composition) and weight loss. They then discussed three targets to increase adherence. The first was controlling the desire to eat, potentially through using a ketogenic diet or synthetic ketone compounds. The second was increasing adherence through ensuring that the diet prescribed was similar to an individual's baseline diet. Thirdly, they discussed the association between consistent self-recording of food intake with improved weight loss, irrespective of accuracy.

This review highlights that we should not overlook the truth in the old adage "the best diet is one you can stick to."
