Going beyond the simple focus on food that typical diet guides perpetuate, this book shows how true health and well-being is obtained when people become free from their obsessions and shift their attention to things greater than themselves. With a focus on developing the habit of serving others for a healthier and more fulfilling life, these essays and personal stories by everyday heroes offer a sampling of services and resources to help everyone find a satisfying way to give, with opportunities ranging from random acts of service to joining the Peace Corps.

“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.” —Doug Stevens, founder, The Renewal Project

“Read this book to be inspired. Read it to be touched. Read it to gain motivation to begin your own work of hope and healing.” —Michael Gingerich, executive director, Foundation of Cancer Research and Wellness
