Beck's assertive lesson teaches people how to manage the thoughts, words, emotions, and environmental cues that make us eat irresponsibly. The author says there are many causes for deviating from a diet, such as sabotaging thoughts, feelings of deserving a reward, or feeling so sad or stressed that we eat poorly to comfort ourselves. Eating behavior can also be vulnerable to external triggers like certain people or the size of a serving plate. After the discussion of her structured five-week program, there are detailed suggestions for handling relapse temptations. Eliza Foss has an appealing tone and conveys a connection with the material. But for many listeners, the author's voice (heard in the introduction) has an intimacy that would make this lesson even more powerful.
