Here is the comment I left about this article:
To lose weight you need to eat less calories than your body uses. Sounds easy, but for many people accomplishing this is difficult. Why? Because long-term dieting affects your thinking and can work against you.On a positive note, at least Mila acknowledged that she didn't feel attractive at 95 pounds... Let me know what you think.
After years (decades) of dieting and an eating disorder history, I finally got help from a cognitive behaviour therapist. I discovered that my overeating behaviour is triggered by dieting not by food. Following (or not following) dieting rules produces anxiety and anxiety feels like hunger. In the beginning I could easily will my way through a craving, but as the years went by it became increasingly more difficult.
If you want to find out what triggers your eating, I recommend cognitive behaviour therapy. I feel like a new person, I'm not thinking about food all the time, battling cravings, and constantly stressed about whether or not I can make it in and out of the store without buying something to eat. And for the first time in my life, I'm losing weight without a diet.
I'm not surprised that Mila Kunis thinks that "you just have to want to do it" in order to lose weight. Most people think that. Anyone on a diet wants to lose weight; the problem is that how they think about food and eating can either help them lose weight or completely sabotage it.
