If you haven’t been successful in your weight-loss efforts, you are not alone. Two-thirds of Americans are overweight. Studies show that 95% of diets and weight loss programs fail. Recent neuroscience research has shown us that when someone overeats, their brain acts almost the same as someone addicted to gambling, sex, or the like.
For many people, losing weight is not about willpower—it is about addiction. Diets do not treat addiction. Diets treat “How you eat”, not “Why you eat”. Again, diets do not treat food addiction.
