Recidivism among dieters has prompted major revisions in treatment methodology as researchers discover the significant contributions of genetics, psychology, and environmental factors to eating behavior.

Starving, Stressed, and Stockpiling

We’re involved in a crisis. It’s epic. It’s huge. Just like we are. We’re starving. Yet we’re fat. Ironic. We’re suffering from a severe deficiency. As much as we eat, and we’re lacking nourishment.

I gave everyone 10 different tools to begin putting into practice that would set them on a course toward navigating the barriers we so often trip over and give permission (not […]
