I see so many ads on TV that promote weight loss, take this pill, that supplement and it will help you lose weight. Drug companies push appetitive suppressants but no one addresses the real issues. The real issue is in your mind! All the appetite suppressants won't help because my mind tells me to eat whether I'm hungry or not. That doesn't matter. I eat when I'm happy, sad, hungry, full, overstuffed or you can name the reason or no reason at all. Drug companies don't address this because it's too hard and elusive to do so. How do you enter someone's mind? How do you help them see a problem so deeply buried for years. A problem when found is so complex that there is no simple solution. A problem that is constantly changing just enough that the solution must be constantly evolving too. Everyday we all fight an unseen enemy, some days we make progress and some days we regress. We don't give up because it's in our nature to fight and we join forces because it's easier to battle with an army than to battle alone.
