Sure, losing weight and achieving the best body you deserve has a lot to do with your emotional and logical commitment to the goal and process, through sheer determination, willpower and grit.

That said, too often in the fitness and food industry, the idea of food addiction is dismissed as a lazy excuse and lack of willpower. From personal experience, I disagree. Food Addiction is a real thing, and needs to be addressed as part of a plan to losing and managing bodyweight.
