Mark’s tip...

"It’s really important to pay attention to our thoughts and feelings in relation to our eating and exercise habits. This is because certain types of thought processes can have a damaging effect on our ability to consistently lose weight. Similarly, food can be used as a strategy to help cope with difficult feelings. But unhelpful ways of thinking and coping needn’t continue forever – commitment to change is key."
