the truth behind “unwanted” pounds...

  How long have you been trying to lose those last 10 or 20 or 30 pounds? Been awhile now, hasn't it? You know how to lose weight --eat healthy and exercise--so why are you still living in a body that you're disappointed with?

Here’s the real deal: You abuse food. That’s right. You’re overweight because you eat too much, and you eat too much because it brings immediate pleasure. It’s time to admit that this pleasure comes at a high price… You’ve heard dishes being referred to as ‘comfort food’—some restaurants even have an entire section of their menu designated as comfort food.
