Every health professional who deals with health promotion knows that one of the most difficult challenges of the job is persuading clients to make behavioral changes. This challenge is, in fact, the essence of Leah’s work. She has set success in this challenge as her goal and mission. Over the years, Leah has developed a unique instruction method, in terms of the contents and the manner in which they are delivered. Thankfully, most of her clients have, indeed, made behavioral changes following their instruction sessions with Leah.
In her book Thou Shalt Not Diet, Leah has put into writing what she does face-to-face with her clients and has learned from her vast experience. Thou Shalt Not Diet is written as an individual guidance session with each reader.
Following the success of her book, Leah has been invited to become a member of The Israeli Forum for the Prevention of Cardiovascular Diseases. She plays an active role in the educational work that the forum leads in the community in order to reduce the risks of cardiovascular diseases.
In addition, since the publication of her book, Leah has been invited to lecture in a variety of settings such as hospitals, community centers, schools, seminars, homes for the elderly, and more. She has been interviewed several times for various Israeli radio shows, as well as for the Israeli TV’s Channel One news.
Leah sees her book as an important mission she has been blessed with. Thankfully, her mission is succeeding. Since the book’s publication, Leah has received feedback from hundreds of people across Israel who read the book and felt the need to call her and tell her about the various changes they have made in their lives thanks to her book. Several readers have called Leah simply to say, “Thank you.”
