Lose Weight Healthfully
With Dr. Fuhrman’s Nutritarian Diet

Your Weight Loss Journey Begins Here...

The Nutritarian approach is a lifestyle plan focused on adopting a high-nutrient eating style to achieve or restore the body to excellent health. Following this type of diet style can make it easy to attain substantial weight loss and maintain it forever. It is the roadmap to dramatically reverse heart disease, radically drop cholesterol and triglycerides levels, and get rid of Type 2 diabetes as well as all of the associated medications commonly prescribed to control these diseases. It can also promote anti-aging and longevity, adding healthful, quality years to your life. The more you adhere to the plan, the quicker and more dramatic the results.

Based on the latest scientific literature, and his own experience helping thousands of people successfully recover their health and transform themselves, Dr. Fuhrman designed this program which:

  • Involves no calorie counting
  • Does not require a completely vegan or even vegetarian diet
  • Provides an opportunity to reverse many chronic health problems
  • Offers the key to overcoming food addiction
  • Puts an end to “yo-yo” dieting and the health dangers that go along with it
  • Outlines a way of eating that can be maintained for life
  • May help you feel and look younger
  • Can help protect against certain types of cancer
  • May add healthy years to your life

A medical breakthrough.

If you give this diet your complete commitment, there is no question in my mind that it will work for you.”

—Mehmet Oz, M.D.

Many fad diets are simply dangerous. They may cause you to lose weight in the short-term, but at the cost of your health. Trendy weight loss schemes and ever-changing fat, carbohydrate, and protein formulas offer temporary weight-loss “fixes.” A dizzying array of fad diets, including Paleo, Wheat Belly, Mediterranean, and low-fat diets, are especially popular now and keep us paralyzed by confusion about what we should be eating and what can be a danger to our health. These unsustainable diets often lead to repeated weight loss and gain, which increase the risks of diabetes and heart disease. Furthermore, this lack of a sustainable, permanent and safe diet plan leads people on a continual and futile search for the one that will work for them, keeping them misinformed, unsuccessful, and trapped in a vicious cycle of food addiction, food cravings, and weight gain.

Dr. Fuhrman writes, “We still need help battling the twin powers of food preference and food addiction, the cornerstones of the billion-dollar diet industry that continues to push trendy, temporary, short-term solutions at the expense of our permanent long-term health.”

The foundation of the Nutritarian program is in understanding the key principles of the science of health, nutrition, and weight loss. With this knowledge you will learn how to effectively apply a simple strategy to achieve and maintain an optimal weight, without dieting, for the rest of your life.

By following Dr. Fuhrman’s Nutritarian program, you will finally lose the weight you have tried so hard to shed, but more importantly you will become healthier than you have ever thought possible. You will be able to eat until you are satisfied and with tremendous pleasure. You will feel great and look great.

Join the thousands of people who have adopted this way of life to lose weight, regain their health, and enjoy renewed vitality. Read their personal journeys for inspiration. The secret to their success is in the knowledge that can be obtained throughout this website and on the pages of Dr. Fuhrman’s books. It will change the way you want to eat.

Americans are fatter and sicker than ever before. Unfortunately, we all know people who either have cancer, heart disease or diabetes. These are not diseases of aging; rather they are the result of the terrible diet that most Americans eat. There is a way out; you can shed all of that excess weight and recover from chronic diseases; no matter what your doctor may have told you. Dr. Fuhrman’s Nutritarian diet will help you to break free from the vicious cycle of poor eating and poor health once and for all.  Dr. Fuhrman explains how to get well in easy-to-understand terms in his books and this website.
