I am a strong-willed person in all other areas of my life but when it comes to losing weight and keeping my weight down, I am useless. Why?

It is a common misconception that it takes willpower to lose weight, keep it off or quit sugar, and that belief alone can make it difficult to quit. But does it really take willpower to?, or is it a shift of perspective that is really needed?

You only need willpower not to do something that you actually want to do. If you don’t want to do something, it doesn’t take willpower not to do it. The difficulty that many experience is because even though they want to quit sugar, they still want to keep eating the kind of food that makes that hard. They want to keep eating it because they believe that it gives them some kind of pleasure or crutch.

Allen Carr’s Easyway shows you how to correct your perspective with respect to not only over-eating but the type of food that you enjoy in a way that leaves you with no desire to keep eating junk food whatsoever. And with no desire to keep eating junk, it doesn’t take willpower to not eat it. Join the millions who have changed their lives using this simple approach.
