Why We Eat Too Much
The Real Cause of Obesity has Nothing to do with Food

We eat too much because what we really want isn’t available.  We don’t crave food.

We’re hugely invested in the idea that the cause of obesity lies with diet – and that we should therefore solve the problem with kale and apple soup (and other such products). But the real cause of obesity has nothing to do with food. It lies in our emotional under-nourishment. We will start to eat less when we feel more connected, more understood and more in touch with our feelings.

Collectively, we speak so much about food but not about what we really need. Perhaps what we really long to consume is understanding, tenderness, recognition, forgiveness and love.
