I'm always surprised with the issues people seem to have with losing weight, while at the same time they just keep on eating junk food. One interesting thing I have seen after years of helping people to lose weight and get lean is that almost every one claims they are "trying" to lose weight but their kitchen is filled with all sorts of junk food rather than natural whole unprocessed food.
People will always say that they are doing their best to lose weight, but I will still notice candy, cookies, cakes in their cupboard and fizzy drinks in their cooler.
So why is it when people really want to lose weight badly, do most still have junk foods to hand in their homes?
Most people hate the idea of giving up their favorite foods because they look on junk food as one of life's little pleasures "
