    This only tells you how overeating works, not how to beat it. Those are two very different things.

    August 16, 2012 at 10:37 am their solution to over-eating is to not eat fatty/sugary foods? Well there`s an eye-opener.

    Also, "food psychologists"? And the reason you like fatty foods more than others is because fats are the most efficient storage medium for energy, thus our taste has developed to prefer these types of foods.

    But this video fails at telling you how to avoid overeating; still comes down to willpower.

    But as the cartoon says, now you know, and knowing is half the battle.

    You now know that eating fatty and sugary foods will make you desire to eat more fatty and sugary foods in a self-perpetuating cycle.

    So the answer? Interrupt the cycle. Use willpower to go cold-turkey on the sugar and fat, as best as you can. You`ll have a really HORRIBLE time to begin with as your cravings attack you, but then after a while the cycle will break down and your cravings will diminish.

    There is no real trick to it, but it`s still hard to do. You have to get through that horrible craving stage, and then it gets better.

    It`s not easy by a long shot, but you can do it. Fight it, fight it, fight it, and you`ll win.

    They forgot to mention to eat slow so your brain has time to tell you that you`re full. I`ve been doing this my whole life and hardly ever finish all the food on my plate. Plus I get to enjoy what I am eating.

    there`s something not right about this.

    For hundreds of years we had sugar and fats, then the 1900s came around and we had more mechannically processed food then ever before, not to mention fast food. Obesity started becoming a problem around when fast food chains came out.. but for the 100`s of years before that, obesity was not such a widespread problem, even though we had access to the sugar and fat.

    I see several mention the question "How to quit over eating?". I will give the answer at no charge... Eat less.

    @TheGuySmiley: But we`ve also been getting lazier. Modern technology lets a lot of people just sit around doing nothing all day.
