I have read every diet/compulsive eating/obsessive eating/overeating/binge eating, etc book on the market & I have tried every diet out there. Nothing works. Some things work initially but then my old demons come back & ruin all my work. I have undergone hypnosis & had counseling & taken prescriptions but nothing ever worked long term.
Well this book really teaches you how to stop those self-sabotaging thoughts, ways, actions. It really does teach you to think like a thin person does. I never understood someone that could actually throw food away or not eat dessert if it was in front of them.
It is initially a good amount of work but far less than most binge eating books,etc. But you really have to do all the steps to break free. You won't need to do them forever & this is only a 6 week program. By the end of the 6 weeks you realize which tools you really need to use forever. But isn't being thin & healthy worth it? I think so.
The book is very clear about eating disorders. If you have one this book isn't for you.
And everything I ever read said you can't lose weight or stop eating until you peel back all the layers of you messed up life or childhood & I have to say it's not true this book gives you an alternative!
For the first time in I would say 10 years I see the light at the end of the tunnel & I can actually say no to overeating.
This book basically helps any diet work great.
This book helps you gain the skills to focus on what's important and the tools to successfully address dieting challenges. Best of all, she provides a framework to keep the focus positive so dieting becomes something you do for yourself, not to yourself.
If you've been frustrated with dieting before -- or are trying to lose weight for the first time, I highly recommend this book.

Don't Just Think Like a Thin Person--Be the Thin Person!(Oxmoor House, 2007) by Judith S. Beck, Ph.D.
Out the beginning of October, 2007 is the companion to New York Times Best-Seller The Beck DIET Solution: The Beck DIET Solution Weight Loss Workbook. Written by Judith S. Beck, Ph.D., it is The 6-Week Plan to Train Your Brain to Think Like a Thin Person. Through reading, writing, and implementing The Workbook's contents, the reader will be able to counteract sabotaging thoughts, overcome weight loss obstacles, and succeed on any nutritious diet. It includes support and encouragement to the dieter through usable charts, graphs, inspirational to-do lists, journaling, and response cards.
Learning to think like a thin person involves a retraining of the brain known as Cognitive Therapy. It is the only psychological method known to help dieters keep off excess weight once lost. Cognitive Therapy is defined as a time-limited, very practical, problem-solving oriented psychotherapy that has been demonstrated in over 400 research trials all over the world to be effective for a wide range of psychological problems, from depression and anxiety to substance abuse, eating disorders, and even chronic pain.
The Beck DIET Solution is a six week program, using Cognitive Therapy, in which dieters learn new thinking or a behavioral skill every day. From that, one learns to superimpose old habits with new and better habits. These skills are used often or occasionally and relate to common sense ideas, like not overeating at dinner. Once a dieter's thinking is changed, these adopted good habits stay with him or her for a lifetime.
