More than two thirds of New Year dieters will ditch their weight loss regime by the 17th of January, says a new poll.

Research by money saving website found three per cent only last until the end of day one, 12% manage to go the distance for a week, 24% last two weeks, and seventeen days in a further 28% will have ditched the diet.

Of those remaining, 12% claimed they’d last until the end of the month, with 21% saying they would stick to their new regime for several months, although they expected some blips along the way.

The survey questioned 580 adults on their dieting habits and how they planned to shed the weight.  41% said they’d cut calories simply by watching what they eat and by exercising more. Techniques included eating more fresh fruit and vegetables, cutting out processed meals, reducing their alcohol consumption and walking instead of using the car. Just over a quarter, 26% said they joined a slimming club to help them lose the excess pounds.  While 19% opted for online diet and fitness plans, with those remaining deciding to sign up with a personal trainer at the gym, lose weight with a group of friends or pay for a diet plan, which includes prepared meals.
