I am not familiar with the NUT program, however, I do wish to comment on the "correlation" between nutrition and food.
Actually it is the food, nutrition values of organic food are far superior to those of the standard supermarket purchase. "We are what we eat."
The fact or Untold Truth is: growth hormones given to the cows, chicken etc. end up on the (human) food table. Genetically modified grains that are fed to the animals end up on the human food table, hormones sprayed on the fruits and vegetables end up on the food table. GM (genetically modified) grain goes into all NON-organic breads, pasta, cereal, etc. Now add to that the growth hormones (and huge amounts of anti-biotics) that are then given to the livestock, humans get a double whammy.
This is just one aspect of "Running on Empty."
I have been studying the probable links between food/nutrition and illnesses. Along with that the functioning or poor functioning of the glandular system. I have modified my diet so far as to accomodate my current lifestyle: regular yogurt daily, one to three meals per week containing red meat, definately no (junk) snack foods, decreased coffee consumption and replaced with green tea, purchase organic foods when available and most importantly greatly decreased the use of sugar.
These simple modifications have allowed me to drop 8 pounds.
Sorry for the extensive comment, just wanted to give an example.
