Beck Diet Solution Think Thin Thursday

"When our dieters have trouble figuring out whether or not what they’re feeling is hunger or something else (a craving, wanting to eat for emotional reasons, etc.) we ask them to take the “tofu test”: if they would eat plain tofu in that moment , then they’re probably hungry. If they’re craving something else, then it’s likely not true hunger underlining the desire to eat."

I use plain romaine lettuce leaves as my test.

Netrition.com is awesome!

Tons of products...MiO, WF, Torani, Da Vinci, etc with flat $4.95 shipping.

I stock up when I order heavy glass bottles, saves lots of money on shipping.

Is the Beck Diet Solution a book that helps with the emotional side of weight issues? I'm at the point where I'm ready to start getting real about my relationship with food.
I appreciate your thoughts!

Thanks! I like these flavors better (raspberry lemonade, yum!)

Sitting at 169 for weigh in his morning which means no loss again, but it is better than the 171.6 I weighed on Monday. Really hope the scale doesn't jump again and only continues to go down from here on out. on the plus side, though I'm not losing much, I am still feeling great and can't picture myself eating any other way, so this is making me confident for maintenance, whenever that will be.

You have such a great attitude! It will happen - our bodies (I am convinced) hang on and frustrate us just to give us motivation to never have to go through the losing process again! At least that's my theory!

This is from yesterday's chat, the comments were posted after I had signed off for the night.

TX WeightLoser

I don't really agree with the eat more packets, I would ask you how much vegs your are getting. More than 4 cups could lead to more insulin and a hunger increase. Are you weighing your vegs raw? How much lean protein are you eating? Weighing it raw?


Texas: I measure all my veggies raw and get all my veggies every day, but not excess, just the 4 cups. I also get my lean protein everyday - 8 oz raw as the program calls for. Thanks for your input. I am going to try it their way for a while - IF I experience hunger, I will add a packet or lean protein. My coaches have not steered my wrong in the eight months (and 80 lbs lost) on the IP protocol. I just want to clarify it is hunger, not cravings. Up until last couple of weeks I never experienced the hunger. It is just another tool in my arsenal.

Ruth Ann:

Yeah for 3 inches! That is great!

Sorry you're under so much stress, it really isn't good for weight loss is it?


Thanks!!! I was super excited about the 3". As far as work. It is not going to change anytime soon, so I need to find a way to let it go and not let the stress get to me. It can affect weight loss, but my coach said to make sure I get enough sleep, which I do, I get about 8 hours a night (just something my body has always required). Some nights it feels like enough, others not.

Happy Thursday all.

Wondering if flavored coffee is OP....for example, we have a few bags of Godiva (chocolate truffle) and New England Coffee (hazelnut creme) hanging around. I drink my coffee black anyway and know about its dehydrating effect so I will drink an extra glass of water for every cup, but just wondering if the fact that it's flavored is OK? Thanks!

Colorado, 3 inches is great and you know that when you lose inches the pounds will follow.

I have been studying P3 material so when I meet with my coach on Friday I will be prepared with questions and be able to understand more. I am looking forward to strawberries!

Did some pictures today for the first time in 9 weeks!! These are my start pictures and this mornings pictures, but I also compared today to 9 weeks ago and there is definitely a lot of inch loss going on. Take that, Mr. Mean Scale.
