If you’re like most people who have gone on diet after diet, you are looking for a permanent slim down solution — the one thing that will help you stay slim for life. You’ve had some success with dieting, but you always find that the weight creeps back on after you finish the diet. What’s going on here? What exactly are you doing wrong?

In most cases, the problem is that you’re attacking just the symptoms of your weight problem, not the cause. That’s right. Eating too much food is actually a symptom.

The real cause of your weight issues is the reason that you overeat. This manifests in many different ways. For some people, it might be out of boredom or stress. Others may eat too much when they are depressed. Whatever it is, it’s these emotional feelings that are driving you to overeat. When you fix the cause of the problem, weight will come off (and stay off) naturally.

But how do you determine what the real cause of your problem is? You have to take a deep look within yourself. It’s not going to be easy to confront your issues. They often deal with not liking a certain part of yourself or with trying to protect yourself by staying fat.

Fortunately, by working on yourself a little bit every day, you’ll be able to deal with these issues and find your true slim down solution. Try to keep a journal and write in it every day. You may want to try writing in the early morning, even before you get out of bed. Or you may prefer to write at night as a way of processing all the things that happened to you during the day.

When you understand your reasons for overeating, it becomes a lot easier to push them aside and start to heal yourself. For example, just realizing that you tend to overeat when you’re bored can help you to stop doing this. You’ll be more conscious and ask yourself whether you’re really hungry or are you looking to fill an emotional need.

You deserve to focus on yourself and determine your real issues. When you do, you’ll be able to find your permanent slim down solution and stay slim for the rest of your life.
