Viki Goldberg

Viki Goldberg, RN earned her master’s degree from Columbia University in education. Her professional focus was on senior education and to assist people to use their personal resources to improve their health stats. After she practiced nursing for forty years, it was time for a change.

In 2012, her husband was diagnosed with Stage 4 renal disease. One of the primary factors that would maintain his optimal state of health is what he ate. With her background in nursing and her passion for good food, she developed a renal diet regime that is both healthy and delicious. There are many exclusions to the kidney diet. Salt and potassium must be avoided. Their lives changed, no more take out, fast foods, frozen meals, canned soups, packaged broths, dehydrated, or processed foods. No more bottled BBQ sauce, salad dressing, or ketchup. They now eat primarily a plant based diet with lots of fresh, frozen, and minimally processed foods.

She was fascinated with cell biology and came up with the BOD-Ē-NOMICS concept of each cell as a factory.

“You have the right to take ownership of your body as if it were your own business. As CEO and leader of your body company, your main job is to take care of your cell factories. Everyone has different genetic codes, lifestyles, circumstances, backgrounds and resources.”

Viki devised a way to explain how the body works in a simple and fun way. She uses analogies as if Your Body is Your Business and YOU are the CEO. In 2010, BOD-Ē-NOMICS became a registered trademark, and the first edition was published.

Viki volunteered to repair books at the Hendrick Hudson Free Library in Montrose New York. She became the resident book restorer. A perfect position for her as she reads over 100 books a year for research, education and entertainment. The Hendrick Hudson Free Library hosted their first book signing event. Westchester County and Spring Lake District Library systems have BOD-Ē-NOMICS, Your Body is Your Business and YOU are the CEO in circulation.

Fun is not what most people think of when they hear the words "diet" or "budget."  Most likely, your first reaction is "I am hungry and I want to go shopping."  Diets and budgets are associated with a restrictive lifestyle, making success difficult or impossible to achieve.  How do you feel about your body, your eating, and your money?  If you are like most people, your body image is poor, your food choices could use improvement, and the topic of money causes stress.  

There are diet, exercise, and investing books with promises of miracles. You have been inundated with so much information on diets and finances, it can be confusing to know which is best for you.  You are promised the quick fix, and then, after you find it doesn’t exist, you may get depressed, confused, and frustrated.  You may even get overwhelmed and decide to do nothing. 

Your Body is Your Business and YOU are the CEO.  It is the job of a lifetime and there are many choices available to you. BOD-Ē-NOMICS shows you how to take ownership of your body.  As the leader of your body company, your job is to gather outside information, and apply the useful knowledge to your company to achieve efficiency and maximize your profits.  Those profits can be distributed, spent, saved, or invested.  You know your body company is different and has unique needs and wants. As the CEO of your life, you learn to discern the best course of action to take.  You are encouraged to discover what works best for your body company.
You have been called to an emergency board meeting.  The fact is, society is at a crisis point with sickness, overeating, and overspending.  Diets keep failing, credit cards remain maxed out, and you need answers that make sense. What is the next step?  You realize there are costs involved; what else are you paying for?  How is your work environment?  Company morale?  Customer service? What are you fueling your body with? What small changes can be made?

BOD-Ē-NOMICS, is a lifestyle based on fun, health, and debt-free living.  

BOD-Ē-NOMICS: Your Body is Your Business and YOU are the CEO explains how your body is influenced by what you think, eat, and spend your money on.  You will learn how to use your new knowledge about your body, eating and money to make simple changes that will fit seamlessly into your current lifestyle.
Companies are much like you and your body.  When created, the people behind companies crave overnight success or expect a quick fix when something goes wrong.  History, however,  shows that transformation takes time.  Most new companies don't make a profit for years.  Fortunately,  your body and your money are more forgiving.  You can start new plans and habits, no matter what stage your "company" is in. Once you learn how your body runs most efficiently, you make better decisions concerning its daily operations and future investments.  You realize that running a successful body company requires planning, commitment to your goals, persistence, and passion.

What influences you?  From birth, it is the world around you, your family, your friends, advertising, mass media, social media, and the internet.  These influences affect every decision and choice you make.  You get the courage to make a decision, and there might be someone there to challenge it, then you doubt yourself.  The point is that you made a decision.  If it was the right decision . . . good for you.  Stand up for yourself.  If it was the wrong decision . . . good for you. Learn from it and realize NOW is the time to correct it.

Improving your food choices and your financial plan will increase your quality of life.  Although being the CEO is a difficult job with many obstacles, you CAN do this.  You are in control of yourself.  In charge.  The Boss. One Person Corporation.  

BOD-Ē-NOMICS gives you tools to help you listen to your instincts - and we keep things simple.  You can use your tools in any eating or economic situation.  Remember, this journey is only about YOU. When you run your body like a profitable business, the result is a life of fun that's designed, implemented, and created by you.

BOD-Ē-NOMICS offers you an educational and entertaining approach to the way you think about YOUR body, YOUR eating and YOUR money.


BOD-Ē-NOMICS, Your Body is Your Business and YOU are the CEO is divided into three main sections:  Body, Eating and Money.
The body section covers mindset, movement, as well as simple to understand anatomy and physiology lessons.  The first step in any lifestyle change is a positive mindset, the next step is to make a solid commitment.  You will be introduced to your own personal assistant, which is your self-talk,  who will guide you through your life.

The eating section is about ingredients, taste, labels, costs of unhealthy choices and a refrigerator analysis.  No one likes to be told what to do.  However, when you realize how important every morsel of food your put in your mouth is, and your investment decision is for your future health, you might make a healthier choice. 

The money section talks about debt, shopping, stress, waste, plans and budgets. Most plans do not work.  BOD-Ē-NOMICS is a fun and simple lifestyle,  you will no longer have to stress about your finances.


Who is this book for? People who want to do well for themselves.  These individuals want to make the best decisions regarding their body, their eating and their money.  They have failed many times, yet keep hoping for success.  They are endlessly looking for answers, truth, education and fun.  They need a plan or a program that will fit seamlessly into their current lifestyle.

This book is also for network marketing companies.

Praise for BOD-Ē-NOMICS

"BOD-Ē-NOMICS is extremely valuable in today's 'go-go' world where most people rarely stop and self-reflect. I'm amazed at how many high achievers have business success, but at the same time they're often one-step from the ER room because they've taken their health for granted. This is a rare book that ties together the massive importance that good health and wealth should play in everyone's life. Thanks again to both Wendy and Viki for not only a timely book, but more importantly their wisdom and expertise to change lives for the better!" -- Tony Rubleski Best Selling Author of
Mind Capture series
"I loved
BOD-Ē-NOMICS, Your Body is Your Business and YOU are the CEO. I felt the passion these writers shared with each and every page. It became crystal clear to me that these women must really be walking their talk, and living their truth. Very inspiring!" Donaylle Nicole, Author of Does Your Face Look Like the Sun

“In the fast paced, constantly changing times, in which we live, BOD-Ē-NOMICS offers a fresh perspective on healthily living.  It will serve as a user friendly guide to making good nutrition an affordable habit. – John R. Gork, CLU, Financial Representative

“The surprising TRUTH is that we SIMPLY don’t REALIZE the effect our eating habits are having on our budget.”  Katie Zysk, Michigan

“I enjoyed every minute and every word.  I have a lot of people that I want to buy copies for.  The way you write and use comparisons along the way is great.  You impart knowledge in a humorous way and one does not feel they are listening to a lecture.  What a wonderful book and great learning experience for all.”  Myrnalee Smith-Rosinsky, Florida

The Complete Idiot’s Guide to 200-300-400 Calorie Meals[1]: This book is full of almost 300 delicious recipes that are full of real, whole foods — not a bunch of chemical-laced, fat-free and sugar-free ingredients that some other popular “diet” cookbooks offer. 
The Small Change Diet[2]: This diet isn’t about creating unrealistic, unsustainable rules — such as calorie counting, restricting choices, or eliminating entire food groups. It is based on 10 small changes that will help you turn smarts habits into second nature, one step at a time.  And one of the best parts is that you decide what to focus on first and when you are ready to move on.  The end result is a lifetime of good health.
The Nutrition Twins Veggie Cure: Expert Advice and Tantalizing Recipes for Health, Energy and Beauty![3] The book offers insight into which veggies can help accomplish which goals — like veggies that are better than wrinkle cream, veggies that reduce stress, reduce bloating or aid in quick weight loss. The book also includes a great 10-day jump-start plan for weight loss, belly de-bloating and toxin flushing.
The Plant-Powered Diet[4]: This book provides a blueprint for following a whole foods, plant-based diet, whether you are vegan, vegetarian or omnivore.  Diets based on whole plant foods have been linked with multiple health benefits, including achieving and maintaining a healthy weight, and lower risk of diseases, such as heart disease, Type 2 diabetes and cancer.
Death of the Diet[5]: This is a healthy lifestyle book. If you’ve had enough of the crash-diet roller coaster, Death of the Diet will empower you to break the cycle of yo-yo dieting, get permanent fitness results and live the life you want — and deserve. The book includes more than a dozen activities and assessments and hundreds of tips, and coaches you step-by-step through the process of first envisioning and then crafting a set of sustainable eating and physical activity habits that are tailored to your preferences and your real life, because you designed them.
When to Eat What[6]: This is another of my books, but it’s probably my favorite so I had to include it. Lots of books tell you what to eat in a perfect world — but what about when you oversleep, are going to a party, work out at meal time, or countless other curve balls life throws us? This book helps you eat healthier and lose weight in the real world with all the challenges real life brings.
Lose It For the Last Time[7]: A step-by-step proven strategy for losing weight and keeping it off, teaching you the tools and techniques for making small changes in your eating behaviors and lifestyle that lead to permanent weight loss. Learn how to make healthy decisions that replace unhealthy habits and reach and maintain a healthy weight.
