Read an Excerpt

Excerpt from the Introduction:
They’ve come to me seeking nutritional assistance for heart disease, type 2 diabetes, Parkinson’s disease, irritable bowel syndrome, attention deficit/hyperactivity disorder—the list goes on. Not so surprisingly, many of them are overweight when I first see them. Rarely, if ever, have I put any of them on formal weight loss diets, yet, oddly enough, a vast majority of them lose the weight they need to, and manage to keep it off.

My commitment has always been to help patients attain and maintain vitality by teaching them to cultivate some modicum of holistic integrity, and to save a life whenever possible. I’ve always operated under the assumption that if I can help people to achieve balance in body, mind, and spirit, I will have put them in the best position to heal what ails them. As far as dealing with patients who suffer from being overweight and from obesity, my philosophy and approach have always been exactly the same. To my way of thinking, these problems are the natural result of a lifestyle that’s devoid of holism. The only real antidote for these afflictions is a commitment to conscious living and a dedication to cultivating balance in body, mind, and spirit. It will never be about calorie-counting diet fads. Truth be told, it’s about holistic transformation—optimal nutrition, emotional freedom, and spiritual sentience.

Meanwhile, as America gourmandizes on empty calories, amasses incalculable pounds, and sabotages its collective body, mind, and spirit, it becomes increasingly desperate for effectual solutions. And as it continues its desperate search for answers, it exposes its aggregate predilection for false promise and specious, push-button solutions that don’t work. Moreover, there is some question as to which worriment is worse—its addiction to food or its obsession with spurious solutions. There seems to be no end to America’s “purple pill” mentality. We appear insistent on clinging to the notion that the next quick fix is “the one.” Meanwhile, the knaves are lined up at our door and, as always, they’re all too willing to take advantage of our desperation and gullibility. We continue to exhibit a high tolerance for their spin, in spite of the fact that their sham solutions remain infinitely ineffectual.

The cold, hard truth is if we’re ever to resolve this dreadful dilemma, we must first be willing to dig down deeper. The diet du jour cannot solve this problem. We’re not gaining weight simply because we’re eating too much. We’re eating too much because we’re broken. We’ve become so averse to feeling the pain at the root of our “dis-ease” that we’re now driven to distraction with food. Weight loss dieting alone cannot get to the bottom of this problem. If our failed history of dieting tells us anything about solving this problem, it’s that it is time for us to stop “mowing the weeds.”

Our current pandemic weight problem is representative of a disease that’s causally rooted in dis-ease. Anything short of a wholehearted commitment to heal ourselves in body, mind, and spirit will merely result in more failure, and the only thing that we’ll lose is more money.

The Whole Health Diet is the antidieting diet plan. It’s very much about state-of-the-art, optimal nutrition, but it’s also about arriving at your ideal weight as the natural result of attaining and maintaining your holistic balance. The WHD escorts the reader through a profound shift in consciousness. By adroitly making the connection between weight and metabolism, emotion, nutrition, physiology, brain (mind) neurology, and spirituality, the WHD provides the reader with the details of “how to” attain true holistic balance and wellness. I believe that by doing so, it’s providing the only real solution to the problem of overweight/obesity.

As with Mark Mincolla's first book Whole Health you learn that its not a plan to follow. Each thing that works if based on your own body. I have been following his information for two years and lost 4 sizes and cured my Crones disease. I am so glad to have this new book that really breaks out just food and health. Its like the piece that was missing.
