This is the reason why people cannot balance their bodies and eat properly, why they fail when they diet, and why they repeatedly and exceedingly gain weight.
We can all agree that if we only changed the attraction to food in our brains- we would eat less and properly, enjoy the right amount of the food we love to eat, and lose weight without any difficulty or suffering. We could live a full life, without dieting, and with the proper body weight, that flatters our looks and maintains our health.
Most of us mistreat our bodies when it comes to food. We consume more than we actually need. Some of us are lucky and have the kind of metabolism that can cope with the excess, but most of us simply gain weight, the percentage of fat in our bodies rises, and our belly and behind grow, our thighs and neck become excessively fat and sometimes we even risk our health, all due to emotional eating.
