“The vast majority of diet, weight loss and nutrition plans and approaches fail because they expect a person to make too many dietary and behavioral changes at once. In essence, they expect you to change overnight (instead of doing so gradually and naturally), leaving most dieters feeling frustrated, overwhelmed and defeated.” David A. Wright, MD, MM, MBA, MHSA (Dr. David)
“The Nutrient Diet: A Cognitive Behavioral Approach to Diet, Impulse Control, Habit Formation, Eating Behaviors & Weight Management” (published by iUniverse) was partially inspired by the courage and confidence by which Oprah Winfrey took on health conditions like being overweight and obesity during the ’80s and ’90s on the Oprah Winfrey Show ® —taking away much of the stigma and shame associated with weight-oriented challenges and body image. “The Nutrient Diet” was also inspired by seeing so many Americans gain weight during the COVID19 pandemic. “The Nutrient Diet” is a “lifestyle approach” for general and mental health based upon sound psychological principles and scientific data and studies from the top research centers and hospitals in America. “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” takes a “cognitive behavioral” (i.e., psychological) approach to diet, nutrition, health, wellness, weight loss, weight management and lifestyle management. In “The Nutrient Diet,” Dr. David offers a “completely new, bold, intelligent, modern, psychological approach” to diet, health, wellness and weight loss and weight management habits. In addition, “The Nutrient Diet” gives the science and reasoning behind making dietary, nutritional and behavioral changes.
“Being overweight, obesity, diabetes, hypertension, metabolic syndrome, peripheral artery disease, coronary artery disease, pulmonary (i.e., breathing-oriented) diseases and other chronic health and mental health conditions are escalating because people are stressed out and their first impulses and reactions are to use food and alcohol to self-medicate,” Dr. Wright points out. “‘The Nutrient Diet’ shows you how to use planning, strategy, habits, rituals, actions, and behavior patterns (i.e., cognitive behavioral methods) so that they become allies in your weight loss, dietary, and lifestyle goals.”
When asked what he wants readers to take away from the book, Dr. Wright answers, “The keys to diet, weight loss, and impulse control are habit and ritual creation, formation, and sustainment. The key is combining the science of nutrition with what works with your unique DNA, metabolism, lifestyle choices and individual health and weight goals. The real key is where science meets individuality and unique lifestyle goals and choices.”

About the Author
Dr. David Wright achieved his MD in July of 2010, graduating summa cum laude [4.0 GPA] from Xavier University School of Medicine. His primary emphases in medical school were forensic psychiatry, addiction psychiatry (addiction medicine), and neurology. While attending medical school, Dr. Wright concurrently completed three master’s degrees back to back. As such, Dr. Wright chose to approach mental health from a more natural, holistic, root cause-based, logic-centered and psychoanalytical and psychodynamic outlook instead of choosing an approach primarily based on handing out pills to simply address the surface symptoms rather than addressing the underlying, root causes (which is how psychiatry is generally practiced today). Dr. Wright believes that individuals, groups and communities need (society needs) more real, root cause-oriented, long-term solutions, not more pills. He frequently asks the question, “Do most Americans really want to be on yet another pill?” Dr. David’s specialties are life direction, ADHD, anxiety, repeating destructive cycles, emotional ruts, relationship issues, grief, and depression. Dr. David is an expert in the areas of “change management,” “personal & professional development” and “performance improvement.” Dr. David’s books include “Sweet Potato Pie for the Spirit, Soul & Psyche” (a self-improvement and self-empowerment book), “Tomato Bisque for the Brain” (a self-improvement and self-empowerment book), and “The Nutrient Diet.” Dr. Wright’s self-improvement books were inspired by Oprah Winfrey, Super Soul Sundays ® on the Oprah Winfrey Network ® (OWN) and by Oprah’s “Thought For The Day” Newsletter ®, which is featured on his website.
