“This book … is the next major step forward in the bibliotherapy of obesity … It contains the first exposition in the popular press of the cognitive approaches to weight reduction … Permanent Weight Control is the best book yet available for the obese person who wishes to try to lose weight without professional help. It will be of even great value to professionals in the field.” —Albert Stunkard, University of Pennsylvania, in Behavior Therapy

This is not simply a “do” or “don’t” book, but rather a book directed at helping you to learn about yourself. It is based on principles derived from the careful work of scores of researchers who have studied the behavior and attitudes of overweight individuals. The major thrust of the book is to help you explore your patterns of behavior and thought, to experiment with change, to test consequences, and to incorporate new behaviors and thoughts into your everyday life. “Perhaps the best common sense, effective solution to the problem of weight control that has yet been published … Well written and documented by an impressive list of references.” —Best Sellers
