As a life coach I see many people who have created strategies for career success. But those same people frequently have no plan for success in their health. In Diet Diagnosis, David Nico shares clear systems for being as intentional about success in your health as you would expect in business. It’s not genetics and it's not luck. It’s either having an intentional plan or not. You’ll love reading that you can create your own “Aha” moments through Awareness, Hope and Action. With no action plan in place, your health – and your business – will likely fail. Don’t take that chance.

“How can I lose weight” is the wrong question. Or at least not the question we should be asking first. Instead, we should approach our Nation’s weight problem by asking, “Why Am I gaining weight in the first place.” David’s book Diet Diagnosis will help you understand the “why” of weight gain and then follow that with the “how” of weight loss. You’ll finish his book with a clear plan for lasting weight loss success.

If you are confused about diets or interested in learning about different diets and which kind of diet might work best for you, then David Nico’s book Diet Diagnosis will be a valuable resource for you. The subtitle for Dr. Nico’s book tells it all: Navigating The Maze of Health and Nutrition Plans. David really does discuss and explain the details of every type of diet imaginable from low-carb to Paleo, from low-fat to vegetarian, from fasting to Mediterranean, and from gluten-free to diets for athletes. But, Diet Diagnosis is more than just a survey of different types of diet programs. It discusses a wide range of important topics like GMO, artificial sweeteners, agricultural toxins, the underlying causes of obesity, plus a healthy dose of encouragement to find the diet that works best for you. If you are either confused about diets or just interested in learning more about the dozens of different types of diet program, then Diet Diagnosis will be an excellent resource for you.

The Road to Hell is paved with good intentions”. The multiple “Roads to Health” are paved with the good intentions of the many Philosophies of a swarm of Practitioners of various certifications, all of whom can be assumed to be cultivating their patients according to their diverse trainings by a plethora of teachers who were in turn guided by their mentors, ad infinitum. Sometime in the 20th century, Science began accumulating facts upon which to base dietary advice, and a veritable flood of “How to – “ books have appeared, disappeared and reappeared in different covers, because the fact is, diet is a major factor in everybody’s Life and Well-being, and many myths and erroneous notions have been promulgated in good faith, occasionally leading to the wrong road. David Nico’s book is a comprehensive collection of almost all of the sensible diets available – (I don’t know what he missed, but I think it is safer to say “almost”) He also gives important help for determining your best choice, with alternatives if it doesn’t work out the first time.

I am very much more aware of how exercise is vital for me as I am sitting most of the work day. I have been exercising at the gym minimum 3 x a week. The awareness of what Dr. Healthnut has brought to me has created so many positive changes in my diet. I'm now feeling and seeing a difference in a short amount of time! I am honored to highly recommend him...I say this with over 12 years of having coaches, mentors, and counselors who have given me wise council along the way. They were incredible coaches and leaders and then I met David Nico. He's Gold!
I've been reducing portions and limiting fatty and high-calorie foods and drinks. Just making this small adjustment, I've lost 10 lbs. in 3 weeks! Now starting to add some simple lifestyle adjustments to keep up the momentum, such as taking stairs instead of the elevator at the office. I'm sleeping better and feeling great with just a few simple changes! in just one week!
I'm fired up and loving this! Dr. Healthnut has been so inspiring! I have been eating more organic/non-gmo real foods since starting with this group. This is week 3 and my fibromyalgia already feels 30-50% better with less body aches and brain fog! I had a serious junk food and sugar addiction, and am overcoming this habit by intentionally using the tools that David so graciously has given us. It gives us the power to make healthy choices and have fun while doing it! Renewing our minds that lead to a healthy spirit, soul and body 🙂 Rom 12:1
"Diet Diagnosis" is a treasure map to better health with nuggets on every page. I love your writing style that is clear, forthright and packed with great information to help us make our own choices about how best to improve our health. I have lost 8+ lbs. since beginning with you Dr. David; I'm walking consistently and setting goals for myself that I am sticking to. I have more energy and determination to succeed. I know this is a permanent lifestyle change for me that will reap great benefits.
This book is dynamic! Other diets are boring because it's the same food all the time. You have to enjoy eating healthy. Feeling really blessed! Since I have been making changes to my diet I have seen my daily blood sugar levels drop by an average of 20 points every time I test my sugar levels compared to the average prior to making changes in my diet. As for losing weight, I know I have lost weight because my pants and shorts are getting very loose to the point that I am starting to feel that I need to purchase a smaller waist size!
I have been inspired by the Healthnut Plan in so many ways. It is a significant tool to organize my thoughts about my hopes, ideas, support, and action steps to live in a true state of Health. It is simple to create the plan by filling in the blanks to help me get into motion. I recognize that it was the “support” ingredient that was missing from my efforts. I am now cooking more, moving more, planning more, and choosing more as I now am mindful of all aspects of my health I need for health - body and soul. Thank you Dr. Healthnut!
So excited! It’s taken years for us to be intentional about making changes. Partly because there are so many confusing and impractical systems out there. This is not a system, but a way of life that benefits the way our bodies realistically function! We’ve taken it seriously and have taken the intentional steps Dr. Nico recommends and have seen great progress in just three weeks! Our shopping list looks completely different. We’ve been very intentional about water. We have seen such a difference in our energy levels. We even had headaches for days coming off of junk just to show the effect this was having on our bodies. We now start with a healthy breakfast after not having eaten breakfast for most of our adult lives and it’s making a huge impact and key to a greater quality of life! I love the community aspect of doing this together. Diet Diagnosis is awesome!
