If you think, “I really need something sweet right now,” remind yourself that at any given moment, it’s never a question of need. Telling yourself, “This is what I need,” can make it seem more legitimate to eat something – even though it may not be. Remind yourself, “I really want something sweet right now, but that doesn’t mean I have to have it.”
The Beck Diet Program was developed by Dr. Judith S. Beck with Deborah Beck Busis, LCSW.
