“we can develop willpower skills. It’s more about strategy than grit or impulses. While we can’t control what we think and feel, we can control what we do—which is where strategy comes into play.”
“Tell me why you think people get fat—not how; that’s obvious.” The answers, he said, were striking: depression, stress, men leave you alone. The second question (which surely few people think about, especially as we live in a society where the opposite question is always the one that’s asked): “What are the benefits of being fat?” The answers turned out to be more of the same, indicating that fat has socially protective benefits: “People leave you alone, men won’t bother you.” Week after week, month after month, Felitti heard the same things.”
