Publisher's Summary

This program includes an introduction read by the author.

Gary Foster's The Shift is not about what to eat or not eat. It’s not about when to eat. It’s about building thinking habits, proven through science, that help you lose weight.

Can you lose weight before you value your body? 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 succeeded at your wellness goal?

No. To all of it.

Dr. Foster’s seven mindset shifts show you how - and why - to treat yourself in a way that feels better and primes you for likelier success. His argument and the techniques in each chapter, built on years of research and breakthroughs in cognitive behavioral therapy and positive psychology, can lead to results on the scale - but, more important, in your own thinking. The Shift flips old-fashioned weight-loss theory on its head, training you to recognize when your thinking is taking you away from your goals, to focus on action rather than outcome, and to value non-scale victories more than the number on the digital display. It’s evidence-based motivation - and it really works!

The seven mindset shifts include learning to enhance the traits you like best about yourself, leaning into your strengths, appreciating the power of small steps (and more frequent reward), finding your people, and truly relaxing into happiness and gratitude.

“Diet thinking” isn’t habit-forming; mindset thinking is. And muscular yet kind mental habits, like the ones found in The Shift, are key to permanent, positive change.

I paid a credit for just the sample

For some reason when I bought this with one of my credits, that is all that downloaded. I am very disappointed! I’d like to know how to get my credit back.

Lifetime WW member - felt like a 5 hour workshop

I was really hoping for something new and exciting to jump start my journey after 18 months of being stagnant (thank you pandemic!). I honestly didn't hear anything in this book that I hadn't already heard in workshops over the past 5 years. I wanted to love it, but I just couldn't.

Don't hesitate to give this a listen!

Very helpful for weight loss and maintenance! I loved it. In a way, this is an updated version of the Beck Diet Solution, which is also a must-listen.

Inspiring

This book reminds us about what we once knew about self value.
There are several excellent strategies for assistance in recognizing our inner strengths, beauty and what makes us shine.

Good to learn self values

As a WW Lifetime member, I feel this helps to developed a stronger will power and is worth hearing. I was lucky to learn these values from the life I lived,
