Re: overweight n miserable

I'm not sure what will work for you but you have described a common problem. Fat cells are living things that strive for survival. Using hormones, they send messages to the brain calling for food. So there's no doubt that you have to put in a lot of effort to overcome this.

One thing you can do, that you might not even miss, is to eliminate anything that contains a lot of saturated fat and instead get your fat from a good quality oil like extra virgin olive oil. This should make it easier to control your hunger.
