The most empowering diet secret ever (O, The Oprah Magazine)

The Beck Diet Solution is the only diet book I would recommend to friends. Her honest straightforward, no-nonsense approach can not only transform your body, but change your mind and your life - permanently. Beck is the go-to expert for anyone looking for a sane, healthy way to lose weight and keep it off. (Rachel Combe, health columnist Elle magazine)

....that's because it's perhaps the best diet book ever to focus on the psychology of permanent weight loss. (Newsweek)

I'd recommend it to emotional eaters everywhere (Top Sante)

Book Description

Have you dieted unsuccessfully in the past? Or have you managed to lose weight only to gain it back? You probably haven’t been successful because you just didn’t know how.

5.0 out of 5 stars the secret of weightloss is finally revealed 7 Sept. 2012
Format:Kindle Edition|Verified Purchase
I bought this book because it was 99p on kindle and I had been losing weight but could feel my motivation starting to slide and I figured I was bound to get 99p worth of value from it. But actually my bargain buy has changed my life.

Beck starts by assuming that the reason the reader hasn't lost weight before is not that they are weak willed or greedy or whatever else the wannabe dieter has called themselves over the years, rather that they simply do not have the right skills and techniques to successfully lose weight. This is a refreshing approach for those of us who are yoyo dieters and who have blamed ourselves for not managing to lose weight in a sustained and long term way.

Step by step she takes the reader through a programme which helps us to reframe food and eating. But you don't just learn from her, you learn from yourself too. So she gets you to undertake exercises which help you to see that you can, for example, tolerate hunger. Or leave food on your plate. Each part has a section at the end called 'sabotaging thoughts' where I'd swear she is looking right into my mind. This means that you do end up doing the exercises because she has already foreseen the ways in which you will sabotage yourself to not do them. The stuff she says makes so much sense that you wonder why you didn't know it before.

As a caution though, this is not a book you read and get given the secret, you need to put the work into it. As I worked my way through the exercises, it became really clear how I gained weight and why I was overweight. And what I needed to do to lose it. This took work and time and energy.

4.0 out of 5 stars A helpful addition to a dieter's armoury 14 Sept. 2008
By Self-help junkie VINE VOICE
Format:Hardcover|Verified Purchase
OK first off - my review is NOT based on just reading the book and thinking 'Oh that sounds wonderful'. I read the book 6 months ago and now I weigh 28lbs less than I did then. So I'm writing with that experience to back up my thoughts here!
First of all, this book is NOT a diet book; you have to choose two diets to use with it (they have to be healthy diets, which aim for a 1-1.5lb loss per week, not a crash-diet). This book aims to give you the psychological tools that you need to succeed with the diets you have chosen.
The two diets I used were: 1. WeightWatchers online (that was my primary diet) and 2. Audrey Eyton's F2 diet (that was my 'back-up' plan for when I couldn't count points, as the WeightWatchers diet requires you to).
So - this book is a step-by-step, 'deal with your obstacles' course: it teaches you how to deal with sabotaging thoughts such as 'It's my birthday, I DESERVE a treat', or 'Just one biscuit won't matter'. It also teaches you that hunger is not an emergency! One day, you even have to go without food between breakfast and dinner, just so that you learn that you won't die from hunger. You also have to write everything down that you eat (that's true on the WeightWatchers programme too), and plan what you are going to eat the day before. A big lesson that I learnt (sounds very obvious, but it's true!) is that life ISN'T fair - there ARE some people who can eat a lot more than me and stay slim, but I can't: tough. If I want to be slim, I have to accept my limits.

I didn't stick to all of her advice, but I certainly used a lot of it to help me stick to WeightWatchers when I felt hungry, bored, fed up etc; etc;. And now I'm 28lbs lighter and ready to embark on the 'maintenance' phase.

5.0 out of 5 stars Buy this book! 28 Sept. 2008
I have read many books over the years in an effort to break my overeating/yo-yo dieting patterns and I think this book might have actually helped me to do so.

The book uses the principles of Cognitive Behaviour Therapy to help you train yourself to have a better relationship with food and approach dieting in a sensible and realistic way. The book does not contain a food plan - you select two sensible diets of your choice - instead it gives you the tools to follow your chosen diet plan successfully. It is set out with some explanatory chat first and then a daily journal (covering 42 days) with a separate concept for each day, a to do list and space to write your own solutions/responses etc. Although you have to undertake to put some time aside everyday it didn't take me more than 10-20 mins each morning to read and think out my strategy. A lot of what Dr Beck says is just common sense but it made me question some of my old assumptions and unhelpful ways of thinking that i had taken to be true for a very long time. Whilst following the programme I lost 10 pounds and since completing it I have found it easy to continue to follow the principles and have lost a further stone in 9 weeks. It is still early days but the weight has stayed off and it has not been as difficult as usual to maintain. I feel more positive than I have done in a long time.

The book will not take the place of therapy for anyone with serious food issues but for those of us who have just got lost over the years in a dieting haze this book is perfect. Cannot recommend it highly enough.
