If you google Judith Beck's website, she has all the worksheets online, as well. I'm using the Diet Solution, and the worksheets from her website. I think either book is fine, but I like the daily step-by-step in the Diet Solution.
I'm also looking for buddies to keep each other accountable! The book calls for weekly and maybe even daily check-ins. Let me know if you want to email each other (maybe a group of us?) to check in with how we're doing.
I'm glad you joined our team. I have been out of commission recently due to the death of my father, but I think our other team mates are giving you good advice. I hope to get to know you better when I get back on the boards.
Sparkfully Yours, Judi

PICONICBASKET, Welcome to the team! You can certainly use us as your diet buddies. As for your question, I only know and have the Beck Diet Solution. And think it's a wonderful companion to the eating right and exercising that I already know. Good luck on your journey.
PICONICBASKET, It is nice to meet you! I look forward to getting to know you better here in Beck-ville! I don't know that one or the other of the books are better to read first. If you already have a diet program, I'd recommend The Beck Diet Solution. If not, or if you want to try the one recommended in The Beck Diet for Life, you may prefer to start with that one. I suspect you love them both!

My name is crystal and I'm a serial dieter (hmmm cereal) Ive picked up both the beck diet solution and the beck diet for life books last week. Should I be reading them simultaneously, is one better to read before the other? I would really love to finally learn the skills to keep the weight off for good :) In the beck diet for life, it says I should get a diet buddy. I'm hoping joining this team will be like having a diet buddy
