Whenever we look at any sort of behaviour change, not just weight loss related, it’s important to discover and acknowledge the barriers to behaviour change and to create strategies to overcome them.

A key target in improving adherence to weight loss strategies is targeting an increased drive to eat, as that is obviously the major contributor to unsuccessful long term weight attempts.

Methods of prevention: structuring our diet in such a way to minimize hunger.

Ketogenic diets get a special mention here, because ketones themselves help supress hunger, while you also get a significant decrease in hunger due to decreased post-prandial spikes in blood sugar and insulin. You also have delayed gastric emptying on a ketogenic diet so you tend to only need to eat 2-3 x a day instead of 4-5.
