Skills include setting achievable goals; creating an accountability system; building self-efficacy; consistently using good eating habits; managing hunger, cravings, and the desire to eat for emotional reasons; solving eating-related problems; staying on track and getting back on track immediately when they make a mistake; and continually motivating themselves through their lifetime.
