earlier today Dr. Fuhrman appeared on Dr. Oz’s radio show. Have a listen! Here’s a little about the show:
Many diets have poor nutritional value and therefore could be contributing to, instead of fighting off, various diseases, Dr. Fuhrman says. His diet plan focuses on foods that are rich in vitamins and nutritional density, keeping the body healthy and protecting against illness.Dr. Fuhrman is becoming quite the satellite radio maven, remember this: Dr. Fuhrman on Howard 100!
Dr. Fuhrman says his diet is successful because people are allowed to eat as much food as they want, as long as they are eating the right foods. "The key is not really to focus on the calories you are eating but [rather] on the quality of the food you eat—then there are mechanisms where the body produces fewer free radicals and the body feels comfortable eating less food," he says. "The symptoms between meals go away and you don't want to eat so many calories."
Avoid (but don't eliminate) animal products and eat lots of leafy greens and vegetables, Dr. Fuhrman says. By following that plan, Dr. Fuhrman says eventually the feelings that are commonly associated with diets—feeling light-headed, weak, foggy and shaky—go away and the weight begins to melt off. "When you eat healthfully, your body gravitates relatively rapidly toward a better weight," he says.
