A major sabotaging thought we hear during this holidays is, “It’s okay to have this extra food, it’s not that much compared to what I could be eating.” When faced with all the extra food you’re not eating, eating extra really can seem legitimate. Remind yourself that your body doesn’t know or care how much you’re NOT eating, it only knows what you do eat. If you take in more calories than you’ve planned, you’ll gain weight.
The Beck Diet Program was developed by Dr. Judith S. Beck with Deborah Beck Busis, LCSW.
