The Social Cause Diet: Filling Up with Satisfying Acts of Service—Stories, Reflections & Resources
Typical diet books share one major flaw: they perpetuate the dieter’s focus on food. But true health and well-being is obtained when we become free from our obsessions and get our attention off of ourselves and onto things that are greater. Author Gail Perry Johnston—someone who knows firsthand about dysfunctional dieting—suggests the Social Cause Diet.
The Social Cause Diet is about developing the habit of serving others for a healthier and more fulfilling life. Studies show that people who volunteer as little as an hour a week enjoy significant health benefits. (See nationalservice.gov or download report here.) This collection of personal stories and volunteering tips offers a sampling of services and resources to help you find satisfying ways to give for the greater good—and for your own health!

"Reading The Social Cause Diet is like eating a box of chocolates. Every story is different, but equally rich and satisfying.”
Owner, Distance Learning Consulting
"The Social Cause Diet is like Chicken Soup for The Soul, but without so much broth because the stories are about making a difference, not just about feeling good."
Founder of The Renewal Project
"The stories are short, uplifting and well-written. I kept thinking I'd read just one more story and the next thing I knew I'd read half the book. The book's message: We can all make a difference in our world and be healthier for it.”
