The New York Times bestselling author of The Beck Diet Solution teams up with her daughter and colleague at the Beck Institute for Cognitive Behavior to teach readers how to think their way thin, offering practical, proven tools for escaping common diet traps for good.

Most diet programs work at first. But then life happens--stress, bad habits, holidays, travel--and we revert to bad habits, and the weight comes back. In this invaluable book, Dr. Judith Beck offers the solution to break free from these common diet traps and keep the weight off for life.

Dr. Beck explains that when it comes to losing weight, it's not just about what we eat. It's also about how we think. To consistently eat differently, we must learn to think differently. Diets fail us because they don't offer effective strategies for overcoming the common traps--emotional eating, social pressure, dining out--that can derail us. Now, she and her daughter, Deborah Beck Busis, share the techniques they have successfully used with thousands of clients, revealing how to overcome the thoughts and behaviors that have held us back. With The Diet Trap Solution, readers on any diet regimen can learn to identify their specific diet traps and create action plans to strengthen their "resistance muscle"--making losing weight easy, sustainable, and enjoyable.

Back cover copy

The techniques developed by New York Times bestselling author and expert in cognitive behavior therapy Dr. Judith Beck and her daughter, Deborah Beck Busis, have helped hundreds of thousands of dieters lose weight. The Diet Trap Solution is the first book of its kind to isolate the most common ways we fail on our diets and offer concrete and practical solutions to avoid these pitfalls for good, even when it seems impossible. No equipment, membership fees, special meals, or specific diet plan required. Instead, dieters need only use that most powerful of all resources--their minds. This accessible and highly practical guide enables us to stay on the healthy diet of our choice and not only lose weight, but keep it off once and for all.

Diet programs all profess to have the magic formula for weight loss: simply eat a certain way and drop ten pounds in a week. But what do you do when your plans fall apart? Your mother-in-law bakes you a surprise birthday cake. Stress at work leads to binge-eating peanut butter and chocolate. A painful breakup causes your diet to go out the window. The truth is, losing and keeping weight off can be extremely difficult, especially when unexpected challenges arise. But learning how to solve these very problems is the surprising solution to lasting weight loss. By identifying the most common traps--stress and emotional eating; friends and family pressure; holidays and travel; and feeling deprived, unmotivated, or discouraged--and then developing actionable escape plans that address each potential diet disaster, anyone can lose weight and keep it off.
