Why is it so easy to regain lost weight?

In part, this is because once w ehave achieved our goal weight, we stop the treatment (controlling your eating, or dieting) and go back to the old ways (which caused the weight gain). Another reason is that after weight loss, our bodies become more efficient and we need fewer calories for the same task.

What can we do to avoid that? Get a hypnotherapist to work out the key changes you had made to your diet, and get her to help you bed those changes in.
