Now a days, many teens are trying to lose weight. Some of their attempts to lose weight are often unhealthy. One of the more popular methods of weight loss is dieting, or the regulated selection of foods, as for medical reasons or weight loss.
A large number of teens are resorting to unhealthy weight loss behaviors. According to Neumark-Sztainer, Story, Hannan, Perry and Irving ( 2002), “more than 1/2 of girls and 1/3 of boys engage in unhealthy weight control behaviors for example, fasting, laxatives, skipping meals, or smoking to control appetite”. Clearly, teens try to lose weight in incorrect ways. Extreme dieting will not help you to become thin; you have to know how to be healthy. Neumark-Sztainer et.al.(2002) also believe “higher weight and overweight teens are more likely to engage in both binge-eating and unhealthy control than normal weight teens. In fact, 20% of overweight girls and 6% of overweight boys report using laxatives, vomiting, and biuret pills” Obviously, teenagers are lost. They try to lose weight quickly, so they become unhealthy. Teens need to know how to diet healthy and effectively. This paper will address four research questions:
1. Does diet make you fat?
2. What are the common mistakes in dieting?
3. How do you make your diet healthy?
4. Is exercise important to lose weight?
The drastic behavior of teens to lose weight calls into question the effectiveness of dieting and other weight loss methods. Dieting needs to be rethought as it has been shown to cause weight gain and many people make unhealthy mistakes in dieting. However, simple changes in the way we approach dieting and exercise can lead to a healthy and effective way to lose weight.

These people are searching for the best diet programs and solution to weight loss. Despite their best efforts, being on a diet is really difficult. The length of the diet depends on how much weight person wants to lose.
However, Hill (2004) said after he looked over the study published in the UK in 1983, he thinks that millions of people who are overweight despite following diets. In the end they often found dieting to be ineffective and that those on diets often gained their weight back. Despite these findings, dieting is our salutation to the overweight problem. According to Johnson (2012), there are many types of diets, but most people who diet gain the weight they lose back, and in the end, most of them end up more overweight than they were when they began the diet.
Also Johnson (2012) said that many health professionals think that the main reason for dieting problems is what people think when they are on diet. In addition, Johnson believes that if we describe the diet...
