Sean Carney Starch-Smart Blog

I occasionally have something to say and like to post blog messages here!

Jeff Novick the Dietician Magician

Jeff Novick the Dietician Magician

On the other side of the wall from where I sit while working daily is a television set in a small room with a treadmill, an eliptical machine and a comfortable loveseat from which strange sounds emanate (they come from the television actually) on most days. Many of those strange sounds are attributed to one human voice; the voice of Jeff Novick, MS, RD, LD, LN.  Jeff makes nutrition EASY and FUN to understand! We highly recommend his videos which do play almost daily in our office.

It was our pleasure to work with Jeff Novick, MS, RD, LD, LN on seven different occasions (but who is counting?) while Dr. Carney was hired as the Medical Director by Rip Esselstyn for some of his Engine 2 Immersions conducted in Austin, Texas and the big island of Hawaii for employees of Whole Foods Market. Well, to make a long story short we liked Jeff so much that we decided to take him home with us (in the form of his many videos). We also sell Jeff's videos in our office so he is able to go home with many of our patients as well.

Below are some of the Jeff Novick, MS, RD, LD, LN videos we have written about:

  • I agree with you Sean, Jeff Novick is Super Man of the veg world! As a former employee of Dr. McDougall, many people ask me for my assistance in helping them reverse their illness. I am constantly recommending Jeff's dvds and directing them to his articles and YouTube videos. Jeff's expertise fills the gap between knowledge and practical application. Applying knowledge is critical in whether or not a patient will succeed with their new diet and lifestyle. Jeff works hard for us, so we don't have to. His simple and easy to understand guidelines walk us through each step of the transition. Who knew label reading could be so easy? We don't need an advanced degree in biochemistry or mathematics after all! We have benefited greatly reading Jeff's discussion forum answers to common questions on We all love Jeff's delightful personality and are blessed he is so passionate about helping others on their journey.

  • Well said Cindy... We are grateful for what he has helped us to learn!

  • Jeff has been to Tucson a few times to speak and I learn something new each and every time he comes. I recommend his DVDs to everyone who is embarking on this endeavor of evolving to a 100% plant-based way of life. He is such an inspiration and conveys his message in such a whimsical and convincing manner.
