    Thanks for your suggestions on eating out. This series of blogs Beck Eating Behaviours is a mini challenge recapping what Beck says about eating behaviours. The people who are doing it have done Beck before and are using these blogs as a refresher.
    You'll notice I follow a set format which is some key elements of what Beck writes. It's keeping me busy just working through the Beck program at the moment. But of course the strategies are mostly not new. However applying the cognitive behavioral approach consistently and in a planned way IS new. It is very powerful to take such a systematic approach.
    Of course, none of it is any use unless we work the program rather than just reading about it. Reading about it just will not produce the necessary changes, though it will provide some interesting ideas.
    To change your thinking it's necessary to do the exercises, and the most benefit is to be had from doing them in order. I'd recommend you get the book and work through the whole six week program one day at a time, it certainly seems to produce lasting changes in the people who do.

    Thanks for your comment on my food pushers blog. Even polite people can resist food pushers, and do it politely. A polite food pusher won't persist in the face of a calm refusal. I learned to resist food pushers long before Beck, really all they want is your attention and thanks for the offer; it's no skin off their nose if you don't eat the food.

    Beck says that it is common for people to feel they have to please others by eating, no matter what the cost to themselves. To which I would respond, and how is that working for you?

    Beck says,if the pusher is upset, it is their problem, not yours.
    She says its OK to disappoint people. It isn't rude; disappointment is a normal part of life.

    She says we need to ask ourselves, who is more important to me here, the food pusher or me? I am entitled to work towards my health and fitness goals.

    I know that might seem challenging. I am not blogging the parts of Beck that deal with sabotaging thoughts and objections to the changes she suggests. It is natural that we will resist changing our thinking and behaviors, but we need to accept that we need to change, or accept that we will be yoyoing or overweight forever.

    Check out Azulpapel's blogs for some responses to unhelpful thoughts. But really, the book is best, packed with so much helpful material.
