Dr. Colbert is a Guest on NBC’s Martha Stewart

Dr. David Colbert of High School Reunion Diet fame appeared on the Martha Stewart Show this morning, March 3.   The charming Ms. Stewart started the show off with a trip down memory lane with her guests, reminiscing about their high school days.  Martha reported that she’d been an athlete and a “goody-two-shoes.”  David noted that his favorite part about high school was leaving it.  Later in the show, the Doctor shared his Shopping List, recommending we eat certain foods on a daily basis to stay young and healthy, inside and out.  Included were:

Dr. Colbert’s Trip to Haiti

Shortly after the earthquake, Dr. Colbert (an internist as well as a dermatologist, with a fellowship in wound healing and ER experience) visited Haiti to help treat the countless victims of the disaster.  His accounting of his trip , and his assessment of what medical follow-up would be needed in the future, was published in The New York Post on February 7.  The article drew attention from many prominent people anxious to continue helping the Haitians recover from the devastation, and led to the establishment of Dr. Colbert’s not-for-profit organization, NYDG Foundation.  A benefit hosted by Dr. Colbert and several celebrities will be held in April.  Link here to The Huffington Post to read how you can help the Haitian earthquake victims, and for details about the event.

 It’s posted on the NY page and the title is “NYC Dermatologist Mobilizes
 “A List” to Help Haitian Amputees”

Starred Review for High School Reunion Diet

High School Reunion Diet receives starred review from esteemed industry resource,  The Library Journal


Colbert, David, M.D., with Terry Reed. The High School Reunion Diet: Lose 20 Years in 30 Days. S. & S. Jan. 2010. 208p. bibliog. index. ISBN 978-1-4391-8255-0. $23. HEALTH

Like Aziz, Colbert (New York Dermatology Group) forbids prepackaged foods, including soft drinks (read: also sugar-free energy drinks and flavored bottled water). He concentrates on low-glycemic-index foods such as oatmeal, beans, cruciferous vegetables, unflavored yogurt, lean meats, and lots of fish. His explanation of how modern foods have sabotaged our health is fascinating. Did you know that even fresh, unprocessed fruits and vegetables are less nutritious now than they were 50 years ago? Exceptionally informative and easy to understand, this title will appeal to anyone who is looking for a quick fix that won’t undermine his or her health, as so many speedy weight-loss plans do.

Carroll’s Note to Dr. Colbert

I LOVE IT! Your genius is so pure, uplifting, inviting, encouraging, fun and brilliant. Especially with the great recipes, every one of which I will make!

High School Reunion Diet is marvelous, immediately debunking old diet buzz words with grace as you give the World the truest way to healthy beauty and well-being without false promises or guarantees. You give us the truth with flair and enthusiasm.

Reading your book is like drinking the most nourishing tall cool glass of spring water when parched and discouraged.

I looked pretty good at my 50th High School Reunion but now, for the 55th, I’ll look even better!
- Carroll Jones West
