If you struggle with your weight and body image, you are not alone. Most people have complicated relationships with food, eating, and their bodies. Media and marketing have aggressively promoted an unhealthy ideal of weight and body image. At the same time we have become a very sedentary culture that eats a lot of high calorie food. The result is an epidemic of obesity.
Losing weight is often the easy part; maintaining weight loss almost never is. Sustained healthy weight control is a “head game” that requires a lot of courage, knowledge, insight, tools and effort. Certainly diet and nutrition, as well as exercise and fitness, are important. As for other weight management programs, CBT for weight management includes personalized plans for eating and exercise.
