Reader Praise For The Slow Down Diet

“Marc David is the leading voice establishing the intimate connection between stress, digestion, metabolism, weight, and health. He reminds us that our relationship with food is as important as the food itself. In a world of ‘high fad’ diets he stands alone, guiding us toward nourishment, pleasure, and healing.”
Mark Hyman, M.D., author of Ultrametabolism: The Simple Plan for Automatic Weight Loss.
“The Slow Down Diet provides us with the missing link about metabolism that sets us free to enjoy food more than ever while also losing weight and getting healthy. Thank you, thank you, Marc David.”
Christiane Northrup, M.D., author of Mother-Daughter Wisdom: Creating a Legacy of Physical and Emotional Health

Reader Praise For Nourishing Wisdom

“Marc David eloquently describes the importance of addressing the emotional and spiritual aspects of our lives in order to truly nourish ourselves.”
Dean Ornish, M.D.
“Nourishing Wisdom is the only diet/nutrition book I have ever seen that deserves to be a runaway best-seller. It is sorely needed. We will never understand nutrition without honoring the principles introduced by Marc David. This book explores a lot of popular archaic beliefs about diet and nutrition, but it doesn’t leave us hanging. It puts something vastly important in their place — the recognition that there is no clear-cut dividing line between mind and body, feelings and food. Do yourself a favor: have this book for dessert. It could forever change the way you think about food.”
Larry Dossey, M.D., author of Recovering the Soul and Beyond Illness
“Nourishing Wisdom provides the missing link in the process of eating. It is the book I wish I had written. It deserves to become The Eater’s Bible.”
Ann Louise Gittleman, M.S., author of Beyond Pritikin and Supernutrition for Women
“Illuminating insights on the connection between our eating and our thoughts and feelings. Nourishing Wisdom is a worthwhile book for anyone concerned with ‘eating right.’”
Annemarie Colbin, author of Food and Healing
“The rarest of books, for it can be truly said, without any exaggeration, that every single person will benefit from reading Nourishing Wisdom. It reveals and nourishes your wisdom, your body, and your life.”
Paul Hawken, author of The Ecology of Commerce and Growing a Business.
