A Spark friend complimented me on my logical approach with the Beck Diet Solution. She made me aware of a key point. Anytime I can use logical thinking instead of emotional thinking, the outcome is better for me. This is why the Response cards are a crucial part of the cognitive behavior therapy. The cards have the logical thinking laid out for us so we can practice it and make it ours.
