The Nutritarian diet was pioneered by Dr. Joel Fuhrman, a board-certified physician with over 25 years of experience in nutritional medicine. He created this diet as a way to help patients overcome food addiction, reach their ideal weight, and reverse chronic diseases attributed to diet, like diabetes or heart disease. The Nutritarian diet focuses on eating meals and foods high in nutrients and is comprised primarily of vegetables, beans, fruits, nuts, seeds, and whole grains. This plant-based, nutrient-dense eating plan supplies the body with macronutrients, like protein and carbohydrates, and micronutrients, like vitamins and minerals, that help to slow the aging process, boost the immune system and facilitate weight loss. The Nutritarian diet is intended to be a lifestyle change, allowing patients to lose weight and feel healthier without having to constantly count calories or live in a state of deprivation.
The Nutritarian diet works because it incorporates the nutrient-rich foods your body needs into your eating plan. This diet allows you to eat until you feel full and gradually decreases your desire for foods with empty calories. Rather than focusing on limiting your meals or counting your calories, the Nutritarian diet encourages you to eat meals comprised of plant-based, nutrient-dense foods that supply your body with the nutrients it needs. When you incorporate more nutrient-dense foods into your diet, you will feel more energized, lose weight, and see an improvement in your overall health. As your body becomes used to eating nutrient-dense foods, you will stop craving the processed foods that make up the typical American’s diet.
