Do the Homework

I want to expound on a statement that I made in a previous post about “doing the homework” to get completely free from food addiction.

Dr. Fuhrman’s scientifically-based instruction on nutritional excellence exposes the lies that we’ve all been taught since childhood; and as the mind becomes renewed with correct information, behaviors change, and then the body transforms as a result.

There are no shortcuts to change, but the investment of time to thoroughly study the information in both his books and the member center will pay back huge dividends of permanent freedom from food addiction, eating disorders, yo-yo weight fluctuations, chronic malnutrition, disease, and astronomical medical bills. Also, it will save significant amounts of money from overeating expenditures and lost work productivity.

I know the following will sound like an advertisement for joining the membership at, and it could be, however I’m writing this to express not only my gratitude for what that membership did for me, but what I see is happening in others’ lives from being a part of it.

The members’ center provides informative tutorials and teleconferences, plus direct access to Dr. Fuhrman in the Ask the Doctor forum to answer specific medical and/or weight loss questions. There are also veteran, like-minded people on the forums which offer support and helpful tips; all of this for a monthly fee that is less than the cost of gas to drive to doctors’ visits or weekly weight loss meetings.

I’ve observed that those who’ve achieved freedom from food addiction are the ones who have thoroughly studied the materials and received on-line support.

Freedom from food addiction that leads to optimal health is a treasured gift that there is no regret in getting back!

There is also a weekly member chat line so you can speak to people who are also following the same plan you are. My own problems with food were largely due to isolating myself from others and eating and watching TV or reading. A major part of breaking my addiction to food is replacing unhealthy behavior with healthy behavior. Just trying to stop eating junk food failed me time and time again. Getting out and talking to people, helping people and engaging in other activities was vitally important to changing my relationship with food.

I know for a fact I could not have changed my ways without the huge support of Dr. Fuhrman's website.

The information I have gained from being a member is priceless and having the information at hand or having access to the forums to get an answer or feedback on an issue is priceless too. I can't usually take part in the teleconferences, but it is great that they are taped and available for playback too.

I agree, you have to do your homework, you have to know what you are doing and more importantly WHY you are doing it.

Yes, I remember a time last spring when the scales weren't budging for what seemed to be a long time. I was getting frustrated so I called the members' center chat line. Just talking it over with everyone, we all put our heads together and came up with a solution, and by the following week's phone chat I had dropped several pounds! The solution worked!

It takes community, not isolation, to radically change life engrained habits. A community by definition is a place with protective walls. (cum = "with"; moenia = "fortification")

I love the following quote by Vincent Van Gogh: "Gauguin (a fellow artist) says that when sailors have to move a heavy load or raise an anchor, they all sing together to keep them up and give them vim." [Scribbling in the Sand by Michael Card; p. 100]

Translated: When one has to remove the heavy load of toxic food addiction and/or raise the burden of repeated defeat, he/she seeks a community of support from like minded friends to help overcome the roadblocks, and cross the line into victory and freedom!
