think like a thin person
While we have been discussing basic cognitive psychology concepts these first few classes I could not help but think about an episode of Oprah I had seen a few years ago. The episode was about a diet plan designed by Dr. Oz and involved associating food that people craved with undesirable things so that the dieter would no loner crave those particular foods. While searching for an article about it, I stumbled upon this, an entire book about this type of dieting. It was also written by Judith Beck, daughter of famed psychologist who pioneered cognitive therapy.
