Behavior modification is a fancy name for changing your attitude toward food and exercise. These changes promote new habits and attitudes that help you lose weight. Many people find they cannot lose weight or keep it off unless they change these attitudes. Behavior-modification techniques are easy to learn and practice. Most involve increasing your awareness of situations in which you overeat so that you can stop overeating.
