100 Ways to End Your Obsession with Food and Weight

by nina on February 4, 2011

food and weight obsessionDo you find yourself obsessed with food and weight? To the point that you cannot really focus on your work, be present with your friends or enjoy your favorite hobbies? This is the insidious nature of food and weight obsessions – they rob you of your life and soul. All you can do is think about how much you ate, how much exercise you need to fo to burn it off, what your next diet is going to be and how to avoid being around people so that you can either binge or starve.

It is a sad way to live, but fortunately you CAN beat your food and weight obsession. The first thing to realize is that it is the dieting, restricting and overthinking about food and weight that is the real cause. Giving up diets is a great start to get rid of the obesssions and free your mind for more positive things.
