Why it’s so hard to stick to a diet?

Imagine a dieter who, after months of discipline, loses control of his cravings and goes on a chocolate binge. Once he is satiated, he tries to make sense of this lapse. Since he is incapable of “reliving” his cravings—true empathy—the best explanation for his behavior is unavailable to him. So he manufactures some other explanations: He’s under stress, he has no support, he’s weak, he’s worthless. If he’s not careful, he can talk himself into believing he’s incapable of sticking with a diet—though he’d slipped just once. It’s no wonder that so many people have trouble losing weight."
