This Summer, Make a Resolution That’s Easy, Fun and Delicious

August 02, 2016 by Joel Fuhrman, MD


New Year’s Eve is the traditional time for making resolutions to lose weight and improve your health. But when you think about it, summer offers many advantages over winter when it comes to following through on your health goals. After all, this is the season when local produce is at its peak: juicy tomatoes, luscious strawberries, crisp greens and vegetables of every hue beckon from grocery stores and farmers’ markets. Just looking at this abundance of delicious plant foods makes it hard to believe that so many people settle for processed, oily, unhealthy foods that are loaded with salt and sugar.

Fueling your body with healthful foods will restore your vitality, enabling you to participate in fun summer activities like swimming, biking, and hiking, or just taking a long evening walk. I have proven that when your daily diet is comprised of lots of delicious, nutrient-dense fruits and vegetables, you will lose weight and transform your life by resetting your palate and reenergizing your body.

To get you started on the path to thinking about food differently, I created 10 in 20: Dr. Fuhrman’s Lose 10 Pounds in 20 Days Detox Program. This innovative weight-loss program not only delivers immediate results, but it will also help you to begin to understand the concept of my Nutritarian diet and offer you strategies for healthful living. This is a plan that focuses on what you should eat, not on what you shouldn’t.

When I designed the 10 in 20 Detox Program, I focused on four overall goals:

  1. It had to be easy to follow.
  2. It had to deliver immediate results.
  3. It had to be fun.
  4. And most of all . . . It had to be delicious.

Fad diets come and go, and they have one thing in common: they are all doomed to fail. As a board-certified family physician and a nutritional researcher, I have helped thousands of patients lose weight, regain their health, and increase their energy through a simple program of eating nutrient-dense, plant-rich foods. I can help you, too. My Nutritarian eating style is not a diet; rather, it is a lifestyle that leads to a better, happier and healthier life..

My 10 in 20 Detox Program includes a 20-day meal plan complete with appetizing recipes, shopping lists, a guide to stocking your pantry for success, daily affirmations, and a list of limited and unlimited foods. This program is aimed at both women and men, with recipe and serving size adjustments noted to address men’s higher caloric needs. The program also gives you access to support, through a free, 3-month Gold membership to DrFuhrman.com and through a private 10 in 20 Detox Program Facebook group.

Since launching the 10 in 20 Detox Program in mid-June 2016, the reaction from our Facebook users has been phenomenal. With more than 60 recipes to choose from, many have written to thank me for introducing them to such a wide range of flavors and textures. Even experienced cooks have told me that they never knew that they could build such satisfying flavors without reaching for the salt shaker.

In less than three weeks, you can detox from the unhealthy, addictive foods that have caused you to gain excess weight—including those processed foods that threaten your health and your longevity. Under this program, you will transform your food preferences, so you will enjoy eating more healthfully forever. Better still, you won’t be frustrated from a pattern of yo-yo dieting, where you lose weight only to gain it back, plus a few pounds more. This plan has been specially designed to help you achieve sustainable weight loss while maximizing your health.

This year, you don’t have to slog through the summer with those extra pounds weighing you down. You can lose weight and begin to regain your health back. In under three weeks, you’ll see dramatic weight loss results, you’ll feel better and more energized than ever, and you’ll reset your palate to prefer the taste of healthy, whole foods. Once you see how great you look and feel after eating this way, you’ll never want to go back to your old way of eating!

Learn more about 10 in 20: Dr. Fuhrman’s Lose 10 Pounds in 20 Days Detox Program, and begin the process of transforming your health. You’ll look great, feel energized – and you’ll be able to concentrate on a new set of resolutions for next New Year’s Eve.

Your 10 in 20 plan is wonderful but only if a person lives in the United States. I live in Nicaragua and am trying hard to use the plan. I am frustrated that at least 40% of the items I need to follow the recipes are unavailable to me here. Because of this I need to substitute and to repeat those recipes I can use. I have spent much time on the Internet searching for possible substitutions. (I found no help on your web site). I am losing weight an thankful for your book.

I'm on day 16 and I'm down 10 lbs as of today. Today has been the only day that I've been hungry! My fault, i got off track yesterday! I'm back on and when my 20 days are up I'm doing it again. I love the food and actually have a hard time eating all the food that I need to eat each day. My energy is improving and my bones don't hurt anymore. That in itself is enough for me to keep up the clean eating.

I have completed the 10 in 20 Program successfully and actually lost 15 pounds due to the fact that I probably have more weight to lose than the average person. The diet involved big changes to my way of cooking and eating and a complete re-stocking of my pantry, but it was worth it!! I plan to re-follow it and hope to lose some additional poundage and then follow Dr. Fuhrman's many wonderful recipes and suggestions on his website! I've found a whole new lifestyle. Thank you Dr. Fuhrman!!
