Determining Weaknesses in Diet Plans
Let's try to determine the cause of Jenna's failure to lose weight.
Too Little Energy Going Into the Body Triggers Both Weakness & Increases Risk of Failure
Jenna was so desperate to lose weight that she not only cut back too much on her food intake, she whacked her diet to death before it even sprouted.

In short, Jenna needed to focus her fury on her eating habits rather than necessary food consumption.
