As fad diets come and go and frustration over regaining lost weight continues, people will increasingly turn to behaviour modification-based programs like this...that's what Weight Watchers and Jenny Craig have been selling...Dr. Ferguson's easy-to-follow weight-loss workbook shows people how to focus on behaviour change, emphasising how to eat rather than what to eat. This edition deals with the vast array of new drugs on the market and what's good and bad about them. Step by step the authors show how to: - Keep a Food Diary - Take a more active approach to daily life - Differentiate between psychological and physiological hunger - Identifv the thoughts and feelings that trigger the desire for food - Reduce reflex response to external food stimuli - Maintain weight loss through self-observation
