Gary Foster's The Shift is not about what to eat or not eat. It's about building mindset habits, proven through science, that help you lose weight and keep it off.Do you need to be tough on yourself to lose weight? Should you put your life on hold until you lose weight? Are big goals needed to achieve big results? Do you deserve to go it alone because you got yourself into this? Is it possible for a weight loss journey to avoid setbacks? Must gratitude and happiness wait until you've lost weight? No. To all of it. Dr. Foster's 7 Mindset Shifts show you how--and why--what you think is just as important as what you eat when it comes to weight loss, and shows you how to start with the most important shift: from self-criticism to self-compassion. Dr. Foster's arguments and the practical, actionable techniques in each chapter are built on years of research and breakthroughs in cognitive behavioral therapy and positive psychology, leading to results both on and off the scale. The Shift flips old-fashioned diet thinking on its head, training you to recognize when your unhelpful ways of thinking take you away from your goals, then teaches how you to turn friction into fuel on weight loss journey. The 7 Mindset Shifts include:
- Leaning into your strengths
- Appreciating the power of small steps (and more frequent rewards)
- Finding your people
- Truly relaxing into happiness and gratitude Diet thinking isn't habit-forming; mindset thinking is. And strong yet kind mindset habits, like the ones found in The Shift, are key to success that lasts.
