So you want to break free?

Are you reaching for that biscuit because you’re bored, upset – or just because it’s there? Knowing why you overeat will help you reconnect with your body’s appetite signals – and stick with a healthy plan. Read on to discover your eating personality

Enjoying a slice of birthday cake or a glass of wine with friends has nothing to do with hunger and, of course, there’s nothing wrong with that.
