Joel Fuhrman, M.D. was born on December 2, 1953 in New York. He is an American board-certified family physician who specializes in nutrition-based treatments for obesity and chronic disease. He is on the medical staff of Hunterdon Medical Center and also serves as Director of Research for the Nutritional Research Foundation. He was a world-class figure skater. He was a member of the US World Figure Skating Team and placed second in the US National Pairs Championship in 1973. He graduated from the University of Pennsylvania School of Medicine.
Fuhrman is the author of six books, and five journal articles. The Second Edition of Eat to Live reached the New York Times Best Seller list in 2013. His other titles Super Immunity and The End of Diabetes also made The New York Times Best Seller List. He has appeared on several radio and television shows. Fuhrman coined the word "nutritarian" to label people who adopt a micronutrient-rich diet style.
He created the Health Equation: Health = Nutrients/Calories (abbreviated as H = N/C). This equation signals that future health can be predicted by the micronutrient per calorie density of the diet. In 2011, Fuhrman launched 3 Steps to Incredible Health!, a sixty-minute PBS pledge program that addresses the crisis of obesity and chronic disease plaguing America. In 2012, Fuhrman launched his second PBS pledge program, entitled The Immunity Solution, which discusses the effect of dietary habits on the immune system and risk of cancer.
Hailed a "medical breakthrough" by Dr. Mehmet Oz, EAT TO LIVE offers a highly effective, scientifically proven way to lose weight quickly. The key to Dr. Joel Fuhrman's revolutionary six-week plan is simple: health = nutrients / calories. When the ratio of nutrients to calories in the food you eat is high, you lose weight. The more nutrient-dense food you eat, the less you crave fat, sweets, and high-caloric foods.
EAT TO LIVE has been revised to include inspiring success stories from people who have used the program to lose shockingly large amounts of weight and recover from life-threatening illnesses; Dr. Fuhrman's nutrient density index; up-to-date scientific research supporting the principles behind Dr. Fuhrman's plan; new recipes and meal ideas; and much more. This easy-to-follow, nutritionally sound diet can help anyone shed pounds quickly-and keep them off.
