She also wrote two books for the lay public: 'De Afslankmythe. Waarom afvallen vaak niet lukt' (2004) [The myth of dieting. Why diets often fail] and 'Afvallen op maat. Een methode met blijvend resultaat' (2007).[Matched treatment of obesity. A method with lasting results]. The book Afvallen op maat was between 2009 and 2016 the basis for the popular internet training " Denk je Slank” by Psychology Magazine. A revised and updated edition of her book Afvallen op maat was recently published by Hogrefe, Amsterdam (April, 2017).

A complete overview of her publications can be found in WoS (vanstrien t or van strien t), Pubmed ( van Strien t) and google scholar (tatjana van strien). A good impression of her work gives her oration: Emotioneel eten [Emotional eating].
