You start to chase happiness by trying to lose weight. 3. You feel unhappy because, let’s be honest here, dieting sucks. 4. You lose a few pounds, yet you don’t feel happy. 5. Because you have been so miserable on this diet, you decide to “treat” yourself by going off the wagon for a meal… or two...ok, three. 6. You gain the weight right back, feel unloved, unhappy and alone. 7. You go back to step one. If you have tried dieting and hated yourself for failing, you are not alone. Few authors understand the complex relationship between food and self-love (or lack of) quite like Chef Alina Z.
