When it comes to losing weight, food is not the enemy, your brain is. Neuroscientist, Dr Sandra Aamodt says our own brains decide how much we should weigh and no amount of dieting is going to change that.

She explains the neuroscience of  losing weight in her new book, Why Diets Make Us Fat: The Unintended Consequences of Our Obsession with Weight Loss.
