The Most Common Reason We are Overweight

Are you one of the millions trying your hardest to lose that excess weight only to end up sorely disappointed? Are you tired of feeling like a failure? Do you want to once and for all conquer your weight loss struggles?

If you are like most individuals, losing weight has been an ongoing battle for most of your life. You are not alone in this battle. Many individuals like you struggle with excess weight and have tried countless numbers of weight loss programs that have left them disillusioned and frustrated. Losing weight only to gain it all back is one of the most disheartening and discouraging things in life. In order to be able to lose weight successfully, you must first understand what brought you here in the first place.

The most basic reason that we are overweight is our relationship with food. How many times have you used food as an excuse? Do you use food to comfort yourself? Do you eat when you’re depressed or anxious? Just about any emotion can be connected with food and one way to break your food addiction is to find the root cause for your overeating. Sometimes people eat out of boredom. They watch TV and immediately just want to munch on some chips. Sometimes we even just mistake thirst for hunger.

Our abusive relationship with food is one of the most difficult things to correct. Unlike alcohol or drug addiction where you can take away the offending agent, food addiction is a completely different thing. You can’t just take food away. We need food to survive. However, we should eat to live and not live to eat. We should eat only enough to have enough energy to get us through our daily activities. The problem is we often times overindulge ourselves, eating until we are stuffed. This overindulgence leads to the excess fat being stored in our bodies. 

I have been a personal trainer since 2009, but since 2013 with my clients at the gym, I had this little experiment about testing different diets and programs bought from the internet. We tested 30 programs with 100 clients and me and my clients together determined which one is the best and which one is the most effective.Please have a look at the results of the experiment..
