Good article

I read a really great article over my lunch hour, not about WHAT to eat to lose weight, but rather, HOW to eat to lose weight. And really - for me this time around, it's not about losing as much weight as I can as fast as I can, it's about learning how to eat. I keep thinking I've finally tackled my issues, but as I've found out, I haven't even scratched the surface. As soon as I am out of my comfort zone, and presented with yummy notsohealthy foods, I devour everything (seconds, please!) and gain millions of pounds. I really have to get to the root of my problem and learn how to eat. Because really, I know what to eat, how much to eat and all of that but I have to learn to eat properly, how to assess my hunger (I am really going to try to tune into my hunger meter), and basically how to eat like a skinny person. Maybe then I'll finally start to solve my "diet" problems.

Enough rambling, here is the article.

Have you heard of the Beck Diet Solution?

I am reading it right now and it really helps a lot. I found that this time, getting back to goal is different for me and I really needed to learn the tools necessary to keep the weight off for good.

It is a lot of cognitive behavioural work, and makes SO much sense.

Oh, and it isn't a specific eating plan, just a way to learn how to eat properly.

Oh! I haven't heard of it, but it sounds exactly what I am looking for. I do have a gift certificate at Chapters... thank you!

I didn't know you went to Guelph! That's awesome! I'm actually in South residence, Prairie Hall. I have a friend in Lambton though! :) I'm in a single brick room, which will be REALLY nice lol.
