My holiday gift to you is support for your weight loss goals. Here are four steps to weight loss: Awareness, Rules, Structure, and Peacefulness.
Eating, and liking certain foods are learned behaviors. As omnivores, we eat different foods based on our learning. This means that our preferences for certain kinds of foods developed over time and become habits. Some of us think we are “addicted” to different foods like sugar, or even fatty foods. Research tells us that we may have preferences for sugary foods (and who doesn’t??) but these preferences are actually learned behaviors. Since they are learned behaviors, we actually can end overeating in four steps.
