In brief: If compulsive tryOA

Many people try diets, gastric bypass, "medical weight mgmt" programs (severe liquid meal replacement for rapid wt loss), etc.
Many who take these drastic steps gain the wt back over & over. Oa is not a diet club. It is a program of mutual support based on the 12 steps of aa. It is about changing yr relationship w food. "face yr stuff instead of stuff yr face." find meetings & info @ www.Oa.Org.

In brief: It is not how

Majority if not all people dieting entirely depend upon how instead of why they or you in particular what to distract you from food that makes you gain weight or whatever. Make or write yourself a note and carry it around so when the urge to eat , read that note.
