Why is it so hard to change the way we eat? The drive to eat is one of the most powerful human urges. We also live in an environment that is loaded with tempting food. The result of this combination is a constant battle between your brain and your willpower. Here are a few more reasons it is so hard to resist tempting foods.   Your brain is hardwired for pleasure.
