So many diet plans give tremendous details about the physiological processes that make their particular diet successful, but fail to include the psychological elements that are also necessary for adherence to the diet plan. Hence, the goal of this book is to provide you with the life-long mental tool to adhere to your diet plan.

During the course of this book, I will point out several marketing techniques that thwart our efforts toward having a balanced daily diet. Then, I will show you how to apply psychological techniques "the right way" to help you stick to your diet plans and live a healthy lifestyle. This book will help you learn to control the many situations and thoughts, related to eating, that our parents helped to control when we were children.

    Best Book I have read this year!!!

    AFter reading this book, I knew I had to write a review to let other people know about this book. So here it is: This book is the silver bullet solution to my dieting. I learned so much about how our minds and the situations control our eating, that I read the book again-aloud to my husband. Dr. Blackman writes so well, that she actually made reading and learning about sticking to your diet, fun. I finally feel prepared and knowledgeable about dieting now. Before you start in on any diet, I think you should read this book.
