|You Tell Yourself: ‘If I eat "diet" foods, my body will be fine.’||Take Action: Many foods labelled ‘diet’ or ‘low-fat’ contain artificial additives and sweeteners to make up for the lack of fat and sugar.

|You Tell Yourself: ‘I take vitamins so I don’t have to eat healthily.’|
|You Tell Yourself: ‘If I give my liver a break every so often, binge-drinking is fine.’|
|You Tell Yourself: ‘I’ll start exercising when I need to.’|
