lov114, I am so glad you found us.
I am not sure what you are asking about how this works, but you have the books on hold, so that will give you the complete picture of the Beck methodology. It is about behavior, not a specific diet, and it *does work if you *do it. It is fool-proof if you *do it. I am apparently being a *fool right now. *sigh.
We serve here as online coaches, buddies, as outlined in the monthly thread by our own fearless leader, BillBlueEyes. Whether you just read and don't post ( I hate that term "lurk") or whether you jump right in and get to know us and we get to know you, which I recommend... you will get the hang of it in no time.
Hope you join us!
