Change how u think: If you regard eating as anything more than refuelling, or you reward yourself with food when you're not physically hungry or just eat something because "mmm -- it looks good" or "i want the solace of eating something", you'll never lose the last of your body fat. Observe your own behavior, and hang out with gym types who'll be a good example.
