What if? TaDa! You get most of us on 3FC!
I know from experience (mine, my friends, my clients, people here on 3FC) that there is an emotional component to nearly anyone's weight and the way they approach food. To say there isn't is ludicrous, in my opinion.
I took a class that focused on "The Psychology of Obesity" at college. It was fascinating.
