Well actually it is as simple as that, and I kinda have an idea, having a dietetics degree myself, which I’m guessing you do not. The weight loss industry is a billion dollar industry because of all the pills, and “quick-fix” diets people think they can use to speed up their weight loss. Newsflash, they don’t work long term, and virtually none of them are healthy for you. What is healthy is good food and exercise. The problem is people don’t realize if you made yourself obese, it’s not going to be a quick fix. Being overweight does not make someone “special” in that they can not lose weight, and anyone who thinks that is fooling themselves.
