This chapter presents Session 5, which concerns helping clients separate the various aspects of weight control into those that are controllable, such as one’s personal food environment and one’s behaviors, and those that are not controllable, such as internal thoughts and feelings, urges and cravings, the general food environment, and options to avoid physical activity. Clients are presented with the underlying rationale of the program of learning to modify the controllable aspects of one’s environment and learning to accept those aspects that are not controllable. Changing the type of food available in one’s home environment is discussed as one controllable aspect of weight control for clients to begin to practice.
