In solving a weight issue, the accumulation of small changes in your behavior is most effective.
You can easily make these small changes, while it is much harder to make big changes. The small changes build upon one another until your behavior becomes significantly different. And that's what it takes to solve an issue related to overeating: making changes in your behavior that last.
Our best advice: start small.
