One dieter told us that in the afternoons she gets off track because keeps hearing a voice in her head telling that all these different types of sweet foods sound good and she should eat them. It turns out that she didn’t have a strong plan to combat that sabotaging voice so no wonder she kept giving in. We helped her make Response Cards for every thought she might have and came up with the plan of reading them once an hour every hour during the hard time. She decided she would also call her mom, take a walk, or do a crossword puzzle if she needed additional distraction. These voices can be overcome, but not without a plan!
