One of our dieters recently told us that she was going to a happy hour with friends over the weekend and she felt awkward not having an alcoholic drink when everybody else would be drinking (even though she doesn’t really like alcohol). We reminded her that if she was dangerously allergic to alcohol, or a recovering alcoholic, she would never dream of having a drink, regardless of how she might feel. Trying to lose weight and be healthier and just as legitimate reasons to abstain.
The Beck Diet Program was developed by Dr. Judith S. Beck with Deborah Beck Busis, LCSW.
