According to Dr. Joel Fuhrman a Nutritarian is a person who eats for health. Be one. It is the perfect time of year for this. Fresh fruit and veggies are abundant and often cheap.
Buy what you need for each day. Keep your food fresh. Try for an artistic array of colors in every meal. Stay healthy this way instead of taking a pill or some other form of medication.
We have control over most of our lives and our wellness. So it?s important to keep your thoughts happy and your body fueled with healthy food. Just this simple change will improve your health and every aspect of your life.
Dr. Fuhrman says the quality of a diet can be judged based on three simple criteria:
- Levels of micronutrients (vitamins, minerals, phytochemicals) per calorie.
- Amounts of macronutrients (fat, carbohydrate, protein) to meet individual needs, without excessive calories that may lead to weight gain or health compromise.
- Avoidance of potentially toxic substances (such as trans fats) and limited amounts of other potentially harmful substances (such as sodium).

Enjoy each meal, by finding the time to eat it in peace. Do not rush. The reason the
French do not gain weight as we do, even though they eat cheeses and drink wine, is simple. They traditionally eat at regular intervals. If they go to a restaurant they sit down for a meal and wait for it to be served. They are relaxed, expecting a good meal and are ready to enjoy it. That is a good way to eat!
And don?t forget to smile!
