The desire to diet suggests that there is some body dissatisfaction, a clear risk factor for the development of an eating disorder. In addition, the practice of dieting increases the likelihood of overeating, as caloric restriction leads to hunger. When the dieter gives in to temptation, this is likely to lead to negative affect. Resumed dieting then continues this pattern, which may then evolve into any one of the recognized eating disorders. As research has demonstrated, going on a diet may actually make us eat more and, as a consequence, feel worse about ourselves and evolve into even more problematic eating patterns.
