I'm pointing you to the website with an excerpt and a link.
The surest way to lose weight is to eat less and exercise more.
But if weight loss is so simple, why do I have so much trouble with it?!As it turns out, "eating less" is a very difficult task. Your body really wants those extra Calories, and you live in a world where food is very plentiful.Instead of foraging for your food, you're literally bombarded with opportunities to eat, and every food manufacturer tries to seduce you with their latest, tastiest offerings. You quickly develop food cravings that willpower alone cannot overcome. To win your "war" against food, you need to learn more about what you're eating...
All food is not created equal!
Don't beat yourself up about not having the will to eat less. The fact is that many high-Calorie foods have an unfair advantage against you. By over-stimulating your appetite, they deceive you into eating more than your body really needs. Many popular diets counter this by grouping foods into "approved" and "unapproved" lists. However, there's a downside to this restrictive approach. The inflexibility of these food lists makes eating very tedious and boring.Shouldn't eating be enjoyable?
