Overview

Diet Diagnosis: Navigating the Maze of Health and Nutrition Plans by David Nico


Many diet plans are promoted as “one size fits all.” But each person is unique and has specific needs and preferences. Diet Diagnosis: Navigating the Maze of Dietand Nutrition Plans will show you how to choose the program that is best for you, while providing practical tools and effective principles that you can implement step-by-step.
Maybe you’ve had your ups and downs as you’ve tried to maintain good eating habits, producing a vicious cycle of lifelong weight problems and risk of disease. Or maybe you feel confused by the conflicting opinions expressed in the media about the “best” foods to eat or the “best” diet, so you are stuck at the grocery story, wondering what to buy for optimal health and nutrition.
No matter what your current health status, David Nico, aka “Dr. Healthnut,” will help you to reach your highest level of wellness possible, including a healthy weight. By changing what, why, and how you eat, you can experience optimum health.
Dr. Healthnut says, “Healthnuts are not really ‘crazy’—they’re just everyday people who want to make healthier lifestyle choices.”

Diet Diagnosis by author David Nico, PhD is a hardcover 283 page book by Whitaker House Publishers. The front cover says "Navigating the maze of health and nutrition plans" and refers to the author as Dr. Healthnut, not crazy, just healthy. This book was not what I expected but thoroughly enjoyed. The author talks about all different types of diets, Standard American, Fasting, Vegetarian, Protein, Carb, Gluten-free, just to name a few. He gives a recap along with pros and cons for each diet. He was unbiased on his assessment of them. Not every diet works for everyone. Even the same diet does not work all of the time for the same person. I hadn't thought about that before but it is so true. Throughout the book are "healthnuts" blocks which are little tips or points to help readers. In the Foreign Toxin chapter one read "Request no sauce and no MSG at restaurants". In the Nourish chapter one there read: use only real, cultured, or fermented dairy and local eggs. Each block has three tips. Author Nico inspires readers to live a healthier lifestyle in all areas of their lives - physical, mental, and emotional. His way of writing is such that he makes everything easy to read and understand. He provides lists and charts to aid in this. It is an interactive book causing readers to reflect, hope, and aspire to accomplish things they previously had not been able to do. Near the back of this book is a Healthnut Life 7-week plan accompanied by examples on how to proceed with positive goals and activities on a week by week basis. There are lines for awareness, hopes, actions, appointments, and a weekly score. This is a great diet/health book. It is a wonderful reference book to turn to again and again. It is encouraging and inspiring. I would recommend this to everyone. I rated it a 5 out of 5 stars. A copy was provided for my honest review from The Book Club Network.

THE DIET DIAGNOSIS is a really good book. It not only gives inspiration, but it also gives some very helpful tips, such as finding the activity that works for you and actually doing it. And it includes a list of foods and chemicals to avoid. There are also some things I didn't know, such as avoiding smoked or cured meats and avoiding canola oil (I always thought that was healthy!) This book is very readable and a wealth of information. A must read for anyone who wants to lose weight and live a healthier lifestyle.

I like that this book offered you a lot of information. I found it to be helpful. I really appreciated the author mentioned that the goal is to have quality of life not just quantity. We need to have the right mindset when we want to change our health habits. I would recommend this book to anyone who really want to live a healthy lifestyle. I received this book for free from Bookfun.org in exchange for an honest review. This review will be posted on Amazon, Barnes & Nobles, Goodreads, etc.

Diet Diagnosis was a very informative book. There are so many different diets out there, many I had never heard of, and David Nico does a great job explaining them. I was impressed because he seemed very neutral about them - he gave pros and cons to each and I appreciated that. I also liked how he talked about at different times in his life, he was on different diets because it worked for that period of his life. Not all diets, even if the best fit for a person, are the best fit ALL THE TIME. It was a very informative, neutral, and helpful book. I thoroughly enjoyed reading it. And he was encouraging and inspiring because even though I “knew” the right things to do, he explained them in such a way that made me want to buy the healthier food and take care of myself, not just save a dollar. He is right. He said that in the olden days, food was the highest item on people’s budgets because they knew without good health, everything else suffered. So, today, while shopping, knowing that the food offered to us isn’t the healthiest, I made significant changes not because I was guilted into it, but because I truly want to feed my family health. I have always tried to be a healthier person and make healthier choices but we had slipped in the last several years. I am inspired again to make the healthier choices, choose the healthier versions because my family and my health are worth it! I received this book for free from The Book Club Network and the author in exchange for my honest review.

I have seen and reviewed my fare share of diet books and this one is 5 stars hands down. Dr Healthnut (David Nico,PhD) gives you not only the reasons behind his plan but step by step programs. Not every diet works for every person that is why this book is so wonderful. He not only focuses on your body but your mind and soul. Each chapter has a pros and cons box to guide you as well as Healthnut things to do for your entire body to promote optimal health. There are so many myths and misunderstandings about our food today than in years past. In today's world we have so many choices it is hard to make the right one without help. That is exactly what this book is, help! At the end of this book he has a Healthnut Life 7-week plan and examples on how to proceed with positive goals and activities. If you are looking for a healthy start to the new year or just want some more information on food this is your book. Thank you and God Bless I recieved this book from The BookClub Network for an honest review.
