The Happiness Diet is based on Dr. Sharp's revolutionary new theory known as the primacy of positivity, which in turn is based on the exciting new science of positive psychology.

This argues that rather than waiting until you succeed to feel's far more effective to feel good first and turbo-charge your chances of achieving your goals.

And this is a massive problem at the heart of most diets. Most approaches to weight loss are very

negative, punitive and quite insulting! Accordingly, they're not very motivating because many people feel depressed and helpless when they're labelled as being lazy or ill disciplined!

With this in mind, Dr. Sharp and The Happiness Institute have developed this new approach, The Happiness Diet.
