Getting fit and losing weight are common goals for the new year. But people often fail at sticking to their new plan and give up by the end of January. The reason that many people don't make it is that they don't change their attitude to and relationship with food. If you're overweight, it's likely that you eat too much and exercise too little. But bad habits are very hard to change, and it's not as simple as saying "I'm going on a diet." You need to examine how you deal with food and learn self-control in relation to your eating. If you decide to deprive yourself of all the fun things about food, you're setting yourself up for failure. What you need to do is change your attitude, not try impose a strict and unattainable eating regime.
