If you think, “I just want to enjoy this weekend and not think about food and dieting,” remind yourself, “Either way I’ll think about it. If I overeat I’ll likely have to think about how bad and guilty I feel, but if I stay in control, I’ll think about how good and proud I feel. Either way it will be on my mind, but at least if I maintain control my thoughts will be positive, not negative.”
The Beck Diet Program was developed by Dr. Judith S. Beck with Deborah Beck Busis, LCSW.
