These are secrets kept from others, but more often than not, these secrets are kept from you yourself.
You can be a researcher. You can not only lose weight, you can also unlock some major riddles of your life.
Try investigating your eating problem. Think about it. Through digging just a bit deeper than perhaps you have before, you can discover reasons why you overeat.
Sometimes, believe it or not, that's all it takes. Sometimes you don't have to struggle to make yourself stop overeating. Sometimes, just being willing to open a window into yourself that you have not opened before, changes everything.
You might need help to do this. Look to friends, family, a trusted advisor. Of course, there is always professional help if you need it.
