Food and drink dramatically affect our energy levels and our biochemistry which in turn influences our emotions and our mental reality.

As you’ll soon see, surprisingly, Dr. Diet won’t necessarily guide everyone to eat the same foods. In fact, the kinds of foods and the proportions of those foods that are right for you may vary quite radically from your friends and loved ones. Dr. Diet gives you the information you need to make the right nutritional choices for your body. Dr. Diet is the chief source of your acquired energy and in many ways the most fundamental of your panel of physicians.

Dr. Diet governs the energy you’ll have for change. Your other doctors may ask you to make changes, but without being able to hear the voice of Dr. Diet, you likely won’t have the energy to make them!


The most common way that Dr. Diet communicates with us is through the activity of our metabolism. Many of the foods we eat today do more to disrupt the body’s normal metabolism than to support it. For example, only 100 years ago, your liver only had to mop up the residues of natural food items in your blood. Today, your poor liver is so busy trying to protect you from chemical additives, colourings, prescription drugs and other non-food molecules that it gets overloaded in a hurry. That’s just one of the possible sources of excessive stress on your metabolism and digestive system
