My husband and I have decided that we are going to start The Beck Diet Solution. We haven't gotten the books yet. For those on the program, do you think it would be beneficial for us to have our own book? Not sure if you actually write answers in the book itself. Thanks for any feedback!

Hi Losin'. You can write in the books, but you need to do a lot of the exercises in a notebook or on index cards. I feel pretty proprietary about my books, and want to read them when I want to read them, so I'd get my own. YMMV of course.
You should be aware that there is a new Beck book, The Complete Beck Diet for Life that was just released today, and my first flip through makes me think it might even be better than BDS. If you have access to both, I'd suggest flipping through and see which looks like it will better fit your style and goals. There is a lot of commonality between the two books, so you'll get most of the good stuff either way.

Hi Anne, Thank you for your response. We decided to go with the first book and to each have our own. They should be arriving on Monday; we are excited about doing the work to change the way we think about food.
