The thing that makes the Beck plan difficult is that since you plan everything out in advance, it's really hard to stay on track when you're heading into a situation where you don't know what food will be served. Let's be honest, I made the choice to be more flexible and feel like a regular person hanging out with my family instead of following the plan. I will have to read the Stage 3 section about difficult situations for next time.
Dieting would be easier if you could just squirrel yourself away alone in a perfect world with no junk food. I don't want to live a life like that, so I need to figure out a way to make things work for me in the real world.
