Often dieters have a window during the day in which staying on track feels the hardest. Sometimes it’s late afternoon, sometimes in the evening. Regardless, it’s important to identify when you’re likely to struggle the most and come up with a plan for how to handle it. Read your Advantages List and Response Cards again (and again!). Plan in distraction techniques. Remind yourself that you’ve gotten through it before and you can do it again! It’s time-limited and the hard time will pass!
The Beck Diet Program was developed by Dr. Judith S. Beck with Deborah Beck Busis, LCSW.
