Dr. Fuhrman Appears on E! Entertainment Television

Alanis Morissette has transformed her health using Dr. Fuhrman's Eat to Live program.  Two weeks ago, her weight loss success was reported in People Magazine. 

Now, her journey to excellent health has been featured on "E! Original Countdowns: 15 Remarkable Celebrity Body Bouncebacks."  Dr. Fuhrman was interviewed and appears on the show - he comments that Alanis was drawn to the focus of his diet-style on disease prevention (rather than only weight-loss) and that this will be instrumental in her continued success.

The show aired Wednesday night - you can view the segment below, and read a transcript here.

That is so cool that Alanis talked about the social pressures for women in this country. Even though I am a man, lately I have started to realize how much pressure women feel to look or act a certain way. Men have pressures to perform certain duties or be bulkier as well but I think women have it a bit tougher. That is great Alanis put it in perspective at 2:51 "Alanis: I started with eating disorders since I was real young and almost every woman I know has been influenced by society's standards of what is sexual and powerful and aesthetically perfect and it can really kill your self-esteem and completely ruin your relationship with your body which is for me becoming a more profound relationship the older I get."

I agree Elijah. Our culture has an unrealistic standard/pressure for women to look a certain way.

If every woman: pre-teen, teen, young adult, middle age and older could grasp the following quote by Dr. Fuhrman from his book, Eat for Health, "By teaching you how to achieve superior health, your ideal weight will follow naturally." . . . . they would be totally free from the pressures of physical appearances that perpetuate eating disorders.

HEALTH is beautiful!

Congratulations Alanis for being a role model of health to many.

Thank you Dr. Fuhrman for pioneering the path of excellent nutrition that leads to optimal health.

Go eating to LIVE!

Up here in The Great White North Alanis is very well known. She really seems to be doing everything the right way, good for her.

This is a great plug for DrF and his books.


PS Why do so many female Canadian singers have the initials AM? In addition to Alanis, there is also Alannah Myles, Amanda Marshall, and of course Anne "Snowbird" Murray.

I think that is an inspiring story for many of us. Man, woman and children. I too, have read the book "Eat To Live" and we have it in our Wellness Studio at the Kachmann MindBody Institute in Ft. Wayne, Indiana. Dr. Rudy Kachmann has been sharing his views and medical opinions on this for many many years. It is all so true. BELIEVE in yourself. Work hard for yourself. We are all worth it.
