I haven’t talked too much about my favorite nutrition guru Dr. Fuhrman yet, but he was on Dr. Oz yesterday talking about his Super Immunity diet. I read his book Eat to Live and it totally changed the way I viewed dieting and nutrition. I am not a full nutritarian (his word) yet, but it is my goal. It’s a hard core eating plan, but he has testimony after testimony that back up his years of research on this way of eating. While he does offer meal suggestions for those who want to eat animal products he strongly advises against eating anything that comes from an animal and he gives you plenty of reasons to back it up. I’m currently reading his book Eat for Health, and I have read the book he wrote about implementing this in children and with each one I learn something new. Watch the videos in the link above from the show and check out some of his books. I’m sold on his plan, just need to work harder on implementing it.
This isn’t just about weight loss either. He has shown that you can cure or reduce the symptoms of many diseases with this way of life. There are tons of testimonies from people who were cured of diabetes, or had their insulin drastically reduced (Type 1), people cured of the symptoms of Lupus, Rheumatoid Arthritis, and many more.
Are you a nutritarian? I’d love to hear your thoughts!
