Publisher Comments:

We all think we know what we have to do to manage our weight, and blame ourselves when we don't meet the goals we have set. In reality, we need to understand the biology behind the body's regulation of weight to achieve the control we are hoping for. And we need strategies for overcoming obstacles: the stress of daily life, emotional upsets, and people who sabotage our efforts or attack our self-esteem.

The Cognitive Behavioral Workbook for Weight Management is a different kind of weight management guide that focuses on helping you stay disciplined and dedicated to your weight management goals by using cognitive behavioral therapy. This approach has been used by therapists for years to treat a diverse range of mental health conditions, and researchers have found that it also helps people make healthy changes that last.

This workbook includes exercises and worksheets to help you design a customized weight management strategy most likely to be effective for you based on the habits and lifestyle you have now. You'll set specific goals to improve your body image and your health, and follow a realistic weight management plan designed specifically for you. It is possible to feel good about yourself as you work toward a healthier lifestyle. This book will show you how.

Learn to:

  • Manage situational, emotional, and interpersonal eating triggers
  • Overcome body image difficulties and critical thoughts
  • Make changes toward weight management that you actually enjoy
  • Use support from friends and family to bolster success

Synopsis:

In The Cognitive Behavioral Workbook for Weight Management, three eating disorder specialists show readers struggling with their weight how to use proven-effective cognitive behavioral strategies to manage emotional eating triggers, overcome body image issues, and make positive lifestyle changes.

Synopsis:

Millions of people know what they have to do to lose weight, but find it difficult to be disciplined when they put weight loss programs to work in their lives. When faced with the challenging emotions, tempting situations, and easy alternatives prevalent in the real world but suspiciously absent from diet pill and home gym commercials, it's often too difficult to give up unhealthy eating and exercise habits.

The Cognitive Behavioral Workbook for Weight Management offers proven-effective tools people need to stay disciplined and dedicated to their weight loss goals. Cognitive behavioral therapy (CBT) has been used by therapists for years to treat a diverse range of mental health conditions, and it has been found to be effective for weight loss as well.

In this workbook, readers will complete exercises and worksheets designed to help them choose the strategy most likely to be effective for them: healthy living, weight loss through lifestyle changes, weight loss supported by medication, or weight loss (bariatric) surgery. The book helps readers change their lifestyle gradually and permanently by preparing themselves, their homes, their family, and their friends for the change. Readers then learn a set of skills they can use to ensure adherence to their plan, and receive ample advice for managing situational and emotional eating triggers and other potential setbacks. The book also covers body image difficulties and helps readers deal with negative, critical thoughts that are unhealthy and unproductive.
