SHIFT is not about what to eat or not to eat. Not when to eat. It’s about building scientifically proven thinking habits that will help you lose weight and live a healthy life. Dr. Foster’s 7 thought shifts show you why and how you feel in a way that makes you feel better and more successful. The techniques in each chapter, developed over years of research in cognitive behavioral therapy and positive psychology, can have results on the scale – but most importantly, in self-thinking that has affected beyond measure.

“Covering the topic of weight loss will dispel the following myths, as well as share the basic shifts that change the way we think about nutrition – all of which are supported and proven by scientific research,” said Dr. Foster. “SHIFT emphasizes that weight loss or health travel is not about changing yourself. You are not overweight. You are not part of it. Mindset Changes in this book to lose weight, stay healthy and feel better — don’t change your identity. You have to value who you are, selfishness will move you to success.

Evidence-based thinking changes listed in the book include the following.

  • Self-pity and what it does for you
  • Build useful thinking patterns
  • Set goals and create experiences
  • Lean to your strengths
  • Valuing your body
  • Finding your people
  • Experience joy and gratitude before you reach your goal

I am very grateful to Gary for his years of work and research in this new important book.

This book aims to help readers – both members and non-members of World War II – learn how to change and achieve their best souls.”

Since 2015, thinking has been a key pillar of World War II because thinking can help them make and continue behavioral changes that improve overall health and well-being. WWW takes lessons from cognitive behavior, acceptance, and positive psychological science to provide curriculum and content to help WW members develop awareness, change their thinking about the journey, and change their thinking about themselves.
