You need: To look at the mental aspect. Obesity is complex and is not just diet alone. 1. Learn to "love yourself" because emotions enter the equation. 2, get rid of all forms of sugar and sweeteners and restrict your diet only to god made food 3. Anorexia is "loss of appetite" and you cannot stop eating or drinking water---period!
