I recommend this book The End of Overeating by David Kessler, who was the FDA commissioner under Bill Clinton an George HW Bush.

This book tells you that overeating and obesity are not entirely because that we're weak in front of the palatable food - but because the food (in fact the food industry) tries all means to maximise the food palatalility to increase sales and that causes us to crave for more food.

It's salt, fat and sugar that hijack our brains. Avoid processed food, which I am going to try.

That's why when they eat in a Chinese restaurant they don't understand that we don't have salt and pepper at hand. Tasty food for us is bland to them as they can't taste the natural flavours any more. Tastebuds can get numb after years of eating strong flavoured food.
