Joel Fuhrman M.D. is a family certified physician, author and nutritionist specializing in the prevention and treatment of diseases using high density nutrients. He is a nationally recognized author of 7 books on nutrition and health, including the 3 best-selling New York Times.
His message is that the physical and emotional effects of hunger undermine efforts to lose weight. People on a standard diet usually experience withdrawal from pro-inflammatory foods while a high-nutrition diet can lead to a sustainable diet for successful weight loss and improved health. Higher food density results in greater satisfaction from less desire for fat and high calorie foods.
