The Cognitive Behavioral Workbook for Weight Management: A Step-by-Step Program (New Harbinger Self-Help Workbook)

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

    I searched all over Amazon for some good weight loss books dealing with emotions. I am going to be having bariatric bypass surgery soon and I have some issues with food and want to get a head start on working through them. I chose this one mainly because of the Cognitive Therapy work I understood I would go through while doing this book. I am half way through with this book and everyday I open it, I am saying to myself, “Wow, this is such a good book.” It is helping me VERY much in looking at all sides of what my emotions are up against. Besides approaching things from a Cognitive Therapy stance, this book also gives rock solid guidelines to help you know what is needed from you to work through your problems, emotions, etc and get on solid footing. Once again I’ll say “I love this book.” Thank you to the authors. As with any book dealing with change in our lives, we need to be totally ready, not “maybe” ready for that type of change. Getting ready to go into bariatric surgery is a serious tool to help various health problems and weight lost. Nothing to jump into without knowing what your’e doing. I’ve studied as much as I can in every area I can and this book is helping me with the main component, my emotions. Once again, thank you.

    I highly recommend this book as a valuable lifestyle assessment and guide for all of us who live in a society that is obsessed with food and exercise. It is written by three highly skilled professionals who have based their program on firm scientific findings and transformed a very complicated topic into a program we can all understand and follow.

    This workbook is amazing. It gives explanations of why it is so difficult to lose weight, and those explanations are actually based on past research and not on some gut or personal feeling. Getting a grip on how you think about weight management, and why you think about weight management, is definitely a way to find a successful route to your goal. Not the goal to be “skinny,” but the goal to be “healthy.” Incredible book! Simple to follow. I would recommend for ANYONE who is on a weight loss plan, but I definitely suggest if for those of you who really battle with habits that derail your efforts each time you try. I am in the extreme obesity range, so you can know that this accolade is coming from someone who does truly understand the battle to find a successful weight management plan. I also suggest the 2010 “The Glycemic Index Diet” book by Rick Gallop. They are awesome together, and literally complement one another.
