nkwbookreviewer5 Stars Out Of 5Great Health and Diet Plan Resource BookJuly 31, 2016nkwbookreviewerQuality: 5Value: 5Meets Expectations: 5Diet 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.

Thats why the author is called the Healthnut, and its a way of life that would be beneficial for all. Why live sick and tired when you can be fit and hopeful? This volume encourages readers to take personal action to form healthy habits that will last a lifetime. Learn the causes of obesity and the problems with diets, which foods are healthy and which are fake, and how to transform your life and health. I recommend it to all.

Deana5 Stars Out Of 5A Healthy LifestyleJanuary 24, 2016DeanaQuality: 5Value: 5Meets Expectations: 5There are many books on the market right now about diets. Some tell you to eat this and cut down on that which can become confusing. In this very well written book, the author has outlined in detail a step by step program. He also gives you reasons for this plan which I found very encouraging. A lot of diet books focus on how to lose weight, but forget that there are other factors that need to be considered in order to achieve your goal. With this book, you get the total package.
Thanks to DIET DIAGNOSIS we are able to focus on body, mind and soul. They all need to work together for a diet to be successful. I loved how the author has the chapters laid out giving you pros and cons that guide you so your entire body can be healthy. The food choices we have today can be overwhelming , but with this book it helps guide you to make healthy choices. I loved the Healthnut Life 7- week plan at the end of the book. It is a great resource to help readers make choices that are healthy and be more informed about food .
Thank you for a book that encourages a healthy living with positive reinforcements and activities that start you on your goal to be healthy. I highly recommend this book for everyone looking for a better way to get healthy and stay healthy.
I received a copy of this book from The BookClub Network for an honest review.
Penny M5 Stars Out Of 5Health for mind, body, and soulJanuary 18, 2016Penny MQuality: 5Value: 5Meets Expectations: 5I 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

Tell us a little about yourself. God has equipped me to make a positive difference. I share health tips now aired on 5 national TV networks: UpLift TV on Direct TV, CTN, Cornerstone, Clear Vision Airport TV, and On Campus Media TV located at 400+ Barnes & Noble college stores. My message is one of exhortation, inspiration, and teaching to leaders, believers, and everyone on how to create and sustain healthy lifestyles.
What was your motivation behind this project? One major heath challenge christians struggles with today is the same challenge facing society in general: Most adults and a third of our children are overweight or obese. Half of adults have pre-diabetes or diabetes. Health care is an increasing financial burden for many households. My desire is to impart wisdom to christians to show it is possible to make changes to improve their lives!
What do you hope folks will gain from this project? My message and the information in the book will bring a new energy and vitality. Living healthy will help you fulfill your mission and accomplish so much more in your calling and legacy.
How were you personally impacted by working on this project? This is my passion! Here's my story. I was a body builder and personal trainer in high school and college. Although I developed a great physique, I was not healthy, primarily due to poor eating habits. My focus shifted to nutrition after a serious injury that prohibited weight lifting. I've dedicated my life to health and wellness and helping others experience a higher quality of life.
