One of the proven ways to deal with obesity involves cognitive behavioral therapy (CBT), which focuses on changing the way that people think about eating and other lifestyle habits. As a result of CBT, obese individuals develop practical ways to improve their dietary habits, such as keeping an “eating diary.” Not only does CBT help individuals manage obesity, it may also benefit their families. It seems that CBT exerts a “ripple effect” that helps family members of the person being directly treated to shed pounds by instituting some healthy dietary changes themselves. Because CBT requires real commitment to change, motivated individuals and supportive families experience the best results. Cognitive behavioral therapy requires a commitment to changing attitude and behavior.
