Default thinking of joining an online program-like shrink yourself or duke

I need to address my reason for yo-yoing so much. I know what to do to lose weight, I know excersice, what to eat how much to eat. I know how to lose weght...

I just can't figure out how to keep it off. How not to return to my previous eating behaviors, how not to get caught up in emotional eating situations. I've lost 15-25 pounds just about every year. And then gained it all back
after a few months of doing right, slowly the emotional eating sneaks in and I'm right back where I began.

So I got a letter of medical necessity from my doctor so I can use my flex spending money on a weight loss support program. I'm looking at either Duke diet online or shrink yourself. I've read both books and both are very good. Duke is more well rounded, does address the emotional aspects of eating, with food and exercise plans but the shrink yourself focuses on the emotional reasons why we over eat.

so I was wondering if anyone has done either programs and what you thought of them

Thanks
Sarah

I'll answer my own question. I went ahead and signed up for the free week of the Duke diet online. I'm not impressed. It's the same format as ediets. They give you a menu and you can customize it but it takes time. I didn't really like that aspect of it on ediets.

If I'm taking to time to chose, I might as well do the entire meal planning by hand, it's easier.

FYI - Shrink Yourself offers a free 7 day trial and you don't have to give your credit card number for the trial.
