It can be helpful to have an “Eating Out Protocol” that you follow each time you eat out, like looking at the menu ahead of time and deciding what to order, planning in advance whether or not to have bread/alcohol/dessert, reading your Advantages List and Response Cards before you go, and as soon as you get your food, physically or mentally mark off how much you’re going to eat.
The Beck Diet Program was developed by Dr. Judith S. Beck with Deborah Beck Busis, LCSW.
