An Introduction to Our Programs for 2020
The origin of the term ‘diet’ comes from the Greek word diaita which means a lifestyle or prescribed way of living. This is also how diets are viewed by the team at Nutrition Coach.
Our programs are designed as life-long plans of nutritional excellence which will result in permanent weight loss (unlike the temporary strategies like may fad diets). Additionally, Nutrition Coach programs can improve your chances of achieving a longer lifespan, increased healthspan, and extended youthspan.
In our programs, you will:
- Learn: Discover nutritional excellence and the specific habits that lead to a fit, thin, and healthy body.
- Try: Practice the habits you have learned via the text, audio, and video of the course, and begin to incorporate these habits into your life in a unique, personal way.
- Talk: Share successes and talk about you stumbling blocks during the group coaching sessions plus receive feedback and suggestions from the nutrition coach team and other peers.
- Adapt: Integrate the nutritional excellence lessons and the newly formed habits into your daily routine; thereby, maintaining your ideal size and shape for the rest of your life.
Receive access to tools, guides, and other resources that will make your weight loss journey both easier and faster.

What Is the Chocolate Diet?
It is a healthy, delicious, lifestyle diet that includes some of the most nutritious whole food on the planet. It was designed the current body of scientific knowledge on what are the best foods for weight loss and overall fitness.
Is the Chocolate Diet an “all-you-can-eat” chocolate plan?
No. Chocolate is a rich, high calorie food; therefore, it should be enjoyed in moderation. The Chocolate Diet is unique as it includes 1-2 portions of chocolate as part of the daily food plan. In fact, by eating chocolate at the right time, it can be transformed into a weight loss tool.
Do I need to purchase any special weight loss chocolate?
No. You can buy your chocolate at your local chocolatier, supermarket, or convenience store. In the program, criteria are given for choosing the best possible chocolate.
Is chocolate a magic bullet for weight loss?
Chocolate is a delicious superfood which contains phytonutrients and other antioxidants and has been linked to a wide number of health benefits. Nevertheless, Chocolate itself does not have any ‘magical’ weight loss properties. This is not really surprising as other extremely healthy foods such as kale, broccoli, blueberries, and apples, to name a few, do not have any special weight loss properties either.
It is unfortunate that chocolate has been traditionally demonized as a ‘bad’ food and often excluded from most weight loss plans as this denial approach to a favorite food usually results in a cycle of sabotage. For chocolate lovers who want to lose weight, abstinence from all chocolate does not have the intended effect. Instead, it often leads to strong psychological cravings and chocolate binging behaviors which often derails the weight loss plan completely
The Chocolate Diet allows for the healthy inclusion of chocolate and employs several clever psychological techniques which transform chocolate from a saboteur into a weight loss tool.
Is the Chocolate Diet a vegetarian or vegan diet?
No. One can still enjoy animal products on the Chocolate Diet; however, it can be easily modified for vegetarians or vegans.

The world’s best Mediterranean diet…
…from the island where people forget to die.
Ikaria is a beautiful Greek island in the Aegean, southwest of Samos, where people live closer to their traditional way of life than most parts of Europe. This includes the way they work, socialize, and eat.
The Ikarian lifestyle is not sedentary, as the people on Ikaria move their bodies more than they rest. This combined with their supercharged version of the Mediterranean style of eating has resulted in Ikaria being considered a ‘blue zone,’ where people reach the age ninety 2.5 times the rate of American and Ikarian men are 4 times as likely to reach age ninety!
And it is not uncommon for women and men to remain extremely active through their 80s, one that is much more vigorous and energetic than the average 60 year old in America, from gardening to long hikes…
….and let’s not forget the reports of the rich and active sex life of the Ikarian octogenarians.
How? A unique combination of what they eat and what they do not eat, plus daily exercise via walking, work, and choosing an active lifestyle.
The Ikarian Diet is a program for anyone in the world who would like to replicate the best features of the Ikarian lifestyle to increase their own lifespan, healthyspan, and youthspan while shedding any extra pounds or inches.
The Ikarian Diet will be released in October 2020.
