Summary

Positive psychologists seek to find and nurture genius and talent, and to make normal life more fulfilling, rather than treat mental illness.This Practical Guide explores how we can all have a "life of enjoyment", in which we savour the positive emotions that are part of healthy living; a "life of engagement" where we feel confident we can tackle the tasks we face; and a ‘life of affiliation’, being part of something larger than ourselves.Free of jargon but full of straightforward advice, case studies and step-by-step instructions, this is the perfect concise start to making your life better.

    The medically proven diet that restores your body's essential nutritional balance 
    "Good fats"--essential fatty acids--influence every aspect of our being, from the beating of our hearts to our ability to learn to remember. There are two types of essential fatty acids (EFAs), omega-6 and omega-3. The problem with our modern diet is that it contains far more omega-6 fatty acids than omega-3s. This hidden imbalance makes us more vulnerable to heart disease, cancer, obesity, autoimmmune diseases, allergies, diabetes, and depression. 
    The Omega Diet is a natural, time-tested diet that balances the essential fatty acids in your diet. It is packed with delicious food that contain the "good" fats, including real salad dressing, cheese, eggs, fish--even the occasional chocolate dessert--and an abundance of antioxidant-rich fruits, vegetables, and legumes. 
    The Omega Diet provides: 
     seven simple dietary guidelines for optimal physical and mental health a concise guide to the foods you need to restore your body's nutritional balance a diet plan that lets you eat fat as you lose fat fifty delicious recipes that are quick and easy to prepare a comprehensive three-week menu to help you get started
