Dr Joel Fuhrman’s Top 10 Health Lessons

Joel Fuhrman, M.D., is the New York Times bestselling author & physician behind the modern classic ‘Eat to Live.’ He advocates a Nutritarian diet and lifestyle, which focuses on eating an abundance of micronutrient rich foods.

Here, I share his Top 10 Health Lessons, based on his youtube video interviews and the teachings he shares in his books. He has a lot of wisdom to share about toxic hunger, food quality and the way to maximise nutrient absorption which will, in turn, help prevent disease and reach an optimal level of health. These are lessons we can all apply to our life, and make it work with what we already believe to give us the best health possible. He has a lot of knowledge on the nutritional scientific literature and what studies suggest will enhance your longevity.

His most notable book is Eat to Live: The Amazing Nutrient-Rich Program for Fast and Sustained Weight Loss. In this #1 New York Times best seller, Dr. Fuhrman outlines his eating style, centred around his scientific health equation H=N/C (health = nutrients/calories) and offers a precise six-week plan designed for rapid and permanent weight loss. Understanding his concept of toxic hunger is a critical element enabling people to end their addictive drive to overeat. Food addictions can be conquered by focusing on the quality of the calories, not the quantity. Dr. Fuhrman shows people how to realise dramatic weight loss (without counting calories or portions) and experience an energising and healing transformation. Many success stories show people dramatically reducing their cholesterol, triglycerides, and blood pressure and alleviating common Western health woes such as headaches, gastritis, indigestion, and nasal congestion!
