One of the most overlooked aspects that explains why we have such difficulty sticking to a diet is our emotional obsession with certain foods. Why is it that we find such comfort in certain foods when we are feeling a certain way emotionally about ourselves? Why is it that we have certain rituals around food that aren’t always in our best interests?
