To help everyone in stay-at-home confinement, “Stepbac from Overeating“ helps take back control of weight through a simple method to change daily overeating habits and take a “Stepbac“ to a natural and healthy weight. It’s not a diet book or an exercise book. It explains in plain and clear language why modern processed food combined with modern food shopping and eating/snacking habits cause people to eat more than they need to - and makes them eat when they are not naturally hungry. Take a Stepbac to feeling better and being a natural weight. Stay safe.
‘Stepbac from Overeating’ is the second in the series of ‘Stepbac’ self-help books. We have written ‘Stepbac from Overeating’ as an easy-reader book and we hope it will be fun, fast, interesting to read and easy to understand. We also hope it will be the most important book you ever read and that it will change the way you look at your eating habits and weight control.
What makes the Stepbac method different? Everyone knows that eating too much is unhealthy, but very few people know how to effectively change their eating habits. Stepbac is different because this book shows you how to change. ‘Stepbac from Overeating’ teaches you a very effective, practical and simple way to take back control of your eating habits and weight.
Many people in modern developed societies experience some weight gain from their mid-thirties or even mid-twenties. Modern life has made us more sedentary and by the time we reach our midlife many people have gained quite a significant amount of weight. By then we are busy and maybe a bit lazy, and we struggle to find the time and energy to shed the pounds and get back to our younger and natural weight. The waistline just seems to keep expanding and the weight seems harder and harder to control.
If that has happened to you, or is happening to you, then we think that the Stepbac method described in this book can help you. We know how you feel, because both authors of this book went through the same weight gain; in our thirties and forties we put on weight, and for a few years it felt impossible to lose it again.
But then things changed. We started to take what we called a ‘Stepbac from Overeating’ - and it worked! We used our Stepbac action as a tool to change all our bad overeating habits and to kill food cravings, and that enabled us to control our weight. Using Stepbac we gradually dropped down to our natural and healthy body weight - the one we were at in our mid-twenties and it stayed there! Using the Stepbac method also meant our health improved, our energy levels went up and our happiness levels soared. In fact we liked the Stepbac method so much that we wrote this book about it.
The ‘Stepbac from Overeating’ method is neither a short-term weight loss diet nor an exercise system. Stepbac is a simple way for you to understand why you have lost control of your weight and a simple way for you to take back control of the food that you eat so that your body’s natural hunger process can control your natural weight. Another way we like to put it is that Stepbac is a way for you to stop letting the food industry use your body as its trash can!
‘Stepbac from Overeating’ teaches you, by using simple, step-by-step explanations with over 40 easy-to-understand diagrams, exactly how you're being tricked into feeling hungry when you're not actually hungry; how you're being tricked into eating too much - what we call overeating; how you're being tricked into eating low-grade food full of sugar - what we call fake Candyfood; and how you're being tricked into buying too much food - what we call overshopping.
The method is explained completely in this book. There are no extra treatments or additional products to buy. It’s all in this book and it’s all 100% natural.
‘Stepbac from Overeating’ teaches you how to Stepbac to the time when you were at a healthy natural weight and helps you to stay there. Stepbac teaches you to change your unnatural overeating habits and by doing so take back control of your weight. When you have finished reading ‘Stepbac from Overeating’ you will know how to defend yourself against Candyfood and take a Stepbac to a natural hunger cycle and natural eating and food shopping habits, which will enable you to take a Stepbac to a healthy, natural body weight, so that your life can be better, happier, healthier and longer.
It’s not possible to Stepbac in time to become a younger person in years, but you can Stepbac in time and go back to your younger health and weight. That will make you feel younger, because you will be healthier, feel better and have the same kind of energy and joy that you had in your youth.
When you have finished reading this book, we hope you will know how to start losing your extra weight and how to take the first of many Stepbac actions to help you regain your natural weight and energy.
We are confident that ‘Stepbac from Overeating’ can help you understand why you're gradually becoming more and more overweight - and how you can stop weight gain and reverse it into weight loss, like we did.
How can Stepbac help you control and lose weight if it is not a diet method? What most people generally term as ‘dieting’ is to lose a few pounds in a few weeks, which, in our opinion, is a waste of time and money. We think it’s the wrong approach to healthy weight control. Think about this. Hundreds of diet methods and diet foods have been available since the 1960s, so why is the news still full of stories about the rise in the number of overweight and obese people in almost every country in the world? Some of our own family members have been dieting all their lives - and yet they never seem to lose weight.
How can Stepbac help you if it is not an exercise method? Well, fitness videos and gyms have been around since the 1970s. Same thing. Waistlines have expanded since the 1970s, so gyms don’t seem to help most people. Of course some moderate daily exercise is essential for good health, but the evidence seems to suggest that for most people diets and fitness centers don’t help them lose weight. So what does work?
‘Stepbac from Overeating’ works. It teaches you a simple method - that anyone can learn - to change your eating habits so that you eat less food and eat less often. The best way - and really the only long-term way - to lose weight and to stay at your natural healthy weight, is to learn how to change your eating habits, change your attitude to modern food and change your lifestyle.
‘Stepbac from Overeating’ will show you how people living in the developed Western world have been tricked into learning unnatural eating habits - or, more accurately, unnatural overeating habits. Most people eat too much and too often. They overeat. Even people who eat healthy food often eat too much of it. It is unnatural to overeat and our many overeating habits are what make us overweight. Our body is not designed to eat all day. Until recent times, most of us did not have unnatural overeating habits.
We think that the biggest reason that we eat too much is that the food industry adds massive amounts of sugar to food. The added sugar in almost all our meals and soft drinks hijacks our natural hunger process and tricks us into eating too much. The sugar in the food tricks our brains and makes us want to eat more often and, what is worse, it makes us eat when we are actually not hungry. We explain this in the Sugar chapter of this book.
‘Stepbac from Overeating’ helps you understand how you're being tricked by sugar and by the food industry, and it teaches you how to ‘untrick’ yourself from both using the Stepbac method. When you understand how you're being tricked, then you can take a ‘Stepbac from Overeating.’
‘Stepbac from Overeating’ can help you change all your overeating habits into one natural eating habit. Having one natural eating habit means that you will only eat when you're hungry and you will only eat the amount of food that your body needs to power itself and that your body is designed for. Eating naturally will mean that you stay at your natural weight and that your energy is at the right level.
This book is not about being thin or fat or about looks or fashion. It’s only about how to take back control of your natural weight. In ‘Stepbac from Overeating’ we use the terms overeating and overweight. This is what we mean when we use those words (figure 1):
Overeat = is when we eat too much and we eat too often.
Overweight = is what we become when we overeat.
