According to research by the South Beach Diet, the average diet resolution lasts 4.7 weeks, which works out to about 33 days, or to be specific: 9 p.m. on February 3.
Not everybody can last that long. About 20 percent of resolution makers quit the diet within two weeks, while 23 percent last less than a month.
There is some good news: A whopping 14 percent of Americans will stick to their diet long enough to reach their goals.
