What is the Nutritarian Diet?

“Nutritarian” is a word that Dr. Fuhrman coined to describe an eating style that is nutrient-dense and plant-rich, and includes a full portfolio of anti-cancer superfoods. These foods — green vegetables, fruits, colorful vegetables, beans, onions, mushrooms, fruit, berries, nuts and seeds — supply both the right amount of macronutrients (protein, fat and carbohydrates) and the vital micronutrients (vitamins, phytochemicals and minerals) that unleash the body’s incredible power to heal itself, slow the aging process, and refuel itself with renewed vitality. A Nutritarian diet avoids concentrated sweeteners, salt, oil, and highly processed foods. It’s the diet style that maximally slows aging and promotes lifespan. As such, it’s the most therapeutic diet style to reverse disease and maintain your ideal weight.
