Are they really feeding him some kind of high fat baby food?
Clean your plate. Here comes the airplane. Better make a happy plate like mommy and daddy. Grandma has little debbie cakes, she made the cookies with love. Skinny kids run around and play, eat like a bird. Overweight kids have to follow the schedule even if not hungry. It's breakfast, it's lunch, it's dinner, the snacks in the cabinet are for snacking.
People didn't used to be fat because they didn't have the kind of crap we have now. They also "played outside." Is it any wonder that if you were to feed a kid heroin they live life as an addict? Food companies know, it's like a casino, the house always wins. Feed the craving.
The main difference in me between when I was 430 lbs and now 250 is just eating when hungry. Not out of boredom. Sweets in moderation. Instead of buying a bag of chocolates and munching on them for a few days, getting cheap candy after Halloween sales, now it's buy a single candy bar and eat 2 bites, maybe have a couple more bites tomorrow or the next day. A bag of chocolate could last me 3 months so I don't buy em.
Food is an enjoyable thing in life, but it's also just food. Take it or leave it. It's like buying a lottery ticket a couple times a year instead of spending a quarter of your check on scratch offs each week.
You have to crucify the fat kid in you and resurrect as your true self. Bury the past, live in the present. It's intimately related to pool in a way, do you make the shot or choke? It's 90% mental.
