When this happens it is usually because the person has tried changing too many things all at once. It is best to go into this as a healthy lifestyle change rather than a "Diet", because in truth, diets don't work. You may lose weight in the short-term, but when you have reached your goal, you go back to what you were doing prior to starting 'the diet', OR you get bored or feel deprived and fall off the wagon because of it.
If you change only one or two things to start with and allow your mind/body to get used to those changes before adding something else to the mix, odds are you will stick with it. The reason is because you are slowly UNlearning the old bad habits which got you to where you are now, as you equally gradually develop healthy new habits.
It might be something as simple as decreasing soda/juice and increasing water. It might be adding a couple extra fruit/veges to your day. OR it could be taking the stairs for one floor instead of the lift. It might be parking your car a wee bit further away from where you normally park it. All these little things add up to big positives over time.
Another thing to look at is that you don't drop the calories right down all of a sudden. It is best to gradually work down to your range, and remember that the range doesn't mean you have to eat at the lowest level, especially if you are exercising.
I hope that is 'food for thought'
