    I think there may be some medical exceptions but on the whole I think this is true. Whether one is overly enthusiastic about eating, eating from boredom/stress/depression, etc., ingesting more calories than your body can burn (especially if a person is not active enough) will result in weight gain.

    First, thanks for bringing to my attention the book “Act Thin, Stay Thin.” I was able to check out a copy on Archive.org.
    As to “Your’e fat because you eat too much”, I totally agree. I look at so many diets and they seem to promote eating a ton of low calorie foods so that you can stay “filled up.” I think we have trained ourselves to think we need large portions. When we are presented with actual portion sizes we are in a state of shock and dismay. When we are used to eating 3-4 times more than we should it is hard to admit what an actual portion size is.
    The other problem we have is wanting quick weight loss. If we would learn to gradually reduce our portion sizes, we would see gradual, although slow, success.
