Whenever I feel like I'm wanting to buy a book on dieting, or look into some diet program, little red flags go up. It's like I think I don't have the answers within myself and I must seek the 'magic pill' from without. That said, these two books are more about practicing weight management activities in a consistent manner. Berkeley's book does prescribe a diet, but it's one I typically try to follow (with some exceptions) anyway. Beck's just says to pick a plan and stick with it.
Do I need more re-enforcement in this area? Or do I need to work on not being so obsessed about it and tying my self-worth to my weight? Can the two go hand in hand?
I don't know. I'm rambling.
