One of the most powerful reasons why Nutrient Rich Nutrient Excellence is so effective, is because your body is actually getting the nutrients, specifically the micronutrients it needs to function and perform successfully and if it can function and perform well, it can stay healthy and free of lifestyle-induced diseases. Nutrition scientists have shown over … Continue Reading!

It's eating a diet that is rich in nutrients but does not contain food stuffs that we know cause disease. I remember years ago, I was talking with my friend Kevin Gianni, from Renegade Health who pointed out the difference between a whole foods diet (which is both plan and animal) in the public definition and … Continue Reading!
A rag mag about health found it's way into my gym (strangely) and it just blew me a way. It made sense! Mind boggled by a sense of clarity about healthy eating, like I had never experienced before, I took a trip to an event. It was then and there that I was introduced to a whole new world of health information and one of the guys leading the charge was Dr. Fuhrman. Needless to say, I did not feel healthy, living and eating the way I was, so I opened my mind and the rest was history. Continue Reading!
When it comes to "healthy eating," there's no shortage of information about what that means. But there is a shortage of *research*. Too often, health claims about various foods are woefully unsupported by reliable research. That's why I'm so excited about this blog post announcing the launch of Dr. Fuhrman's Nutritional Research Project, which will study how different diets can help you prevent, or even reverse, disease.

I've been researching the most common and devastating diseases Americans are dealing with, with the aim of finding a common thread running throughout both cause and reversal. As it is now, one out of every two of us will get cancer or heart disease, and one out of every three children born after the year 2000 will be diagnosed with type 2 diabetes. These are devastating diseases, certainly to those who are burdened by them, but also to a health care system that is struggling to keep up. The extraordinary doctors and nutritional scientists I've talked with seem to be saying - and saying fervently - the same thing: a diet high in animal protein is disastrous to our health, while a plant-based (vegan) diet prevents disease and is restorative to our health. And they say this with peer-reviewed (the gold standard of studies) science to back them up. Even the very conservative ADA (American Dietetic Association) says: "Vegetarian diets are often associated with a number of health advantages, including lower blood cholesterol levels, lower risk of heart disease, lower blood pressure levels, and lower risk of hypertension and type 2 diabetes. Vegetarians tend to have a lower body mass index (BMI) and lower overall cancer rates." Continue Reading!
Imagine a cup of broth at night, or a soup or a seasoning, for a salad or any one of a myriad of dishes, and knowing that you weren't getting a dose of increase-your-blood-pressure sodium that will put you at further risk of disease. Yet, it tasted like you were getting that hit of salt you've likely gotten used to while your body was getting a nutrient rich superfood that you loved! Continue Reading!
Insulin causes weight gain, worsens the diabetes, promotes vulnerable plaque and takes a person at borderline risk if heart attack or stroke and makes them high risk. This has already be demonstrated in various studies to increase death rate. Continue Reading!
I love this article by By Craig Ballantyne. I"ll be doing an interview with Craig in August where we will introduce you to his new Easy Veggie Meal Plans, which will include the 8 raw food smoothies bonus. By the way, I remember going through the same learning curve years ago! Here it is. Smoothies … Continue Reading!
As I listened to this presentation, I was surrounded by the same group of people I remember seeing at Atkins events years ago (I used to attend for insight into that trend). Overweight people who are being misled by other overweight people who have good intentions but, need to open their minds and understand more than weight management and observational science, and the nutrient poor model of nutrition.

When weight gain is short term, all other lifestyle factors aside; it's not just the food, it is the affect of the food that really makes the difference. Continue Reading!
