Here is a list of posts chronicling my CBT journey in chronological order:
The journey to change began with the book, The Beck Diet Solution. The original premise for this blog was to chronicle my way through this 6-week self-help program. I lasted 15 days, from August 1st to the 15th in 2009. In the end, I needed more help than I could get from a self-help book, but I'm posting these entries so you can read about my relationship with food before CBT.

Last Post about the Beck Diet Solution
Before I found cognitive behaviour therapy, I attempted to fix my eating/food/weight issues with a Toronto-based intuitive eating group therapy program. Below are a series of posts about my experience and insights with the seven rules for intuitive eating.
Eat when you are hungry
Eat sitting down in a calm environment
Eat what your body wants
Eat until you are satisfied
Eat in full view of others
Eat with enjoyment, gusto and pleasure & eat without distraction
