Brains and Butter by Deedra Hunter, LMHC

Every month the leading magazines feature a new diet with an old promise – loose weight fast! Thousands have renewed hope this one will work and this time will be different. Of course, they “fail” again and the cycle continues. Could there be something more to this problem? We blame ourselves for lack of willpower but, as the eating disorder specialist for the LifeWorks Group, I have always suspected the chemistry of the brain propels us to overreact as much as our emotions do. Will power is a very over-rated, over-relied on virtue. According to the recent issue of Time magazine my suspicions have been correct. This is a must read for all of you who want to become better informed with the newest research concerning why we eat what we do, when we do, and how much we do.
