A New Approach-The Simple Easy Diet

Life Coach Examiner Judy Zerafa has published an excellent book that takes a different approach to weight loss.  'The Simple Easy Diet' can be read in one sitting.  Judy is able to get directly to the point-very quickly. She writes concisely and provides a brief, but thorough explanation of her topics.

With all the diet books that offer food plans that vary from the extreme to ridiculous, it's refreshing to find a book that gets to the root of the problem. This is an exercise in self-exploration. Judy illustrates some key points and strategies that make sense and are easy to incorporate.

Twenty years ago Judy started her research by interviewing 35 incredibly successful people. She asked them one question: What do you think you know...that you think nobody else knows...that has allowed you to succeed to the degree for which you've been honored? Seven attributes kept coming up, as she interviewed the 35 people. With a closer look, it became apparent that 30 of those people spoke exclusively of three of these attributes. With this knowledge, Judy designed her seven strategies:

Strategy number one: Look for the good.

Strategy number two-If there is something about yourself or your circumstances with which you are not happy, take action to make things better.

Strategy number three- If you are confronting a situation you cannot change and do not like, focus your attention on finding a benefit from it. 

Strategy number four- If you don't have time to go through the first three strategies and decide which might work best, create a feeling switch to instantly change your attitude from negative to positive.

Judy demonstrates the importance of positive habits and how the subconscious mind has more power than your conscious mind. Also, how your actions are consistent with the images created by your repeated thoughts, feelings and accepted perceptions of yourself through others. Positive habits earn the respect of others and give you an increased level of confidence and self-esteem.
The book provides some valuable tools, including the 'ladder of emotions' and a technique using 'change cards'. These are very personalized, so that you can address your own goals and dreams.  Here is a link to Judy's website.
