Obesity rates have reached an all-time high, with some reports stating that there are over 600 million people worldwide that can be classified as obese, and many, many more as overweight. These figures are alarming, representing a global epidemic that heralds a health crisis the likes of which few of us can truly comprehend. Excess weight can lead to diabetes, heart problems, cancer and more. The reasons so many are overweight are numerous, yet a leading cause is binge eating.
Binge eating is defined as the act of eating to excess, either in a single sitting or over a short period. This is often done in private, and is commonly a side effect of restrictive dieting. Many diets, designed to help people lose weight, actually have the opposite effect, creating a physiological need to fill the void with foods on the restricted or banned list – foods that are often full of fat, calories, sodium and preservatives. This pendulum of losing and gaining weight manufactures the perfect environment for poor health, and even more weight gain.
Fortunately, there is a solution. It is not found in a diet, a pill or even an exercise regime. The answer is already with you, and simply requires changing your mind. This book revolutionizes the concept of losing weight, and our relationship with food. By thinking of food differently and realizing that no foods should ever truly be off limits, we can set ourselves free from the cage of dieting, stop binge eating and discover the thin person inside… by thinking like one.
