Have you read about Dr. Joel Fuhrman? More than just a focus on the Mediterranean Diet, Dr. Joel is Dr. Oz’s new best friend and he’s got a nutritious way to think about food and keeping your weight down. It’s all right on Dr. Oz’s web site.
Dr. Fuhrman believes that healing through food is the key to a healthy lifestyle. His alternate food pyramid starts with foods high in micro-nutrients as the base. These foods not only contain vitamins and minerals that are essential to helping the body repair itself, they also have immune-boosting phytochemicals.
Rather than supplementing with vitamins, Dr. Fuhrman believes that nutrient-dense foods, which make up the base of this pyramid, are the most important part of your diet, helping your body thrive naturally.
