Back Cover

Dr. David A. Wright

Since the 1980s I’ve observed literally hundreds of diet plans come and go—although, a few of them, like Weight Watchers ®, Jenny Craig ® and Nutrisystem®, have appeared to stand the tests of time.

  • However, most of them, seem to come and go like the wind. And, I got to see this up close and personal within my own family, within myself and within the clients of my practices.
  • Through all of these observations, and taking an analytic approach to them both singularly and in aggregate, I came to the conclusion that the vast majority of them “FAIL” because they expect the individual to make too many primary changes at once.
  • In essence, they expect the person to change overnight—which rarely happens anywhere in nature (including within humanity; i.e., our species).
  • Plans, goals and objectives tend to fail when they require too many steps too quickly.
  • I base this opinion off of the Simplicity Principle, which I state as ‘The simpler something is to set up and begin, the more likely one is to consistently continue (i.e., perpetuate) it.’
  • The reverse of that is the Complexity Principle, which I state as ‘the more complicated something is to set up, begin and perpetuate, the more likely one is to abruptly discontinue (i.e., abandon) it.’
  • The same is true of most diets (i.e., lifestyle modification plans [LMPs]. Because they are generally complex, even when someone strives to make them easy, they are difficult to permanently install as a habit, routine &/or ritual.
  • That’s WHY it’s so difficult for the vast majority of individuals to start, continue and complete a diet (or other lifestyle plan).


The Nutrient Diet is a Completely New, Bold, Different, Psychological Approach to diet, health, wellness and weight management habits!


The Nutrient Diet is a “Lifestyle” Approach for General & Mental Health based on Sound Psychological Principles!

  • The Nutrient Diet is 50% Diet and Nutrition, and 50% Cognitive and Behavioral Psychological Strategies for eating behaviors, dieting, impulse control and habit formation.
  • The Nutrient Diet is the First Book of its kind to take a Cognitive Behavioral (i.e., Psychological) approach to diet, nutrition, health, wellness and lifestyle management!
  • The Nutrient Diet truly is a “Trendsetter” in the Diet, Health, Wellness, Medicine, Nutrition and Lifestyle Fields!
  • Not only does The Nutrient Diet show and explain what you need to eat, it explains HOW you should eat it—based on sound, tested scientific data and psychological principles!
  • The Nutrient Diet does it in a way that allows you to make lifestyle changes easily, naturally, and progressively so that you don’t get overwhelmed…
