Wheat Belly, The Paleo Caveman Diet, Dr Atkins and Eat to Live

Let me just start off this post by saying very clearly, I am not a doctor, a dietician, a nutritionist, a scientist or an expert of any kind in the field of healthy eating.  I am simply a person who has battled weight my entire adult life and have spent the same amount of time in personal study, reading, trying, living and coming to finally understand what healthy eating is for me.  Being almost 200 pounds overweight at one time, did not in any way diminish my knowledge of calories, carbs, fats, food combining, healthy eating etc. I just did not always choose to act on what I knew to be true for me.

For the past several days I have been listening to the book Wheat Belly, by William Davis, MD.  While I was initially drawn to reading the book due to my own love of starch carbs (give me a potato or a chocolate any day) I was underwhelmed to say the least and frightened by some of the information espoused in the Wheat Belly Diet.  90% of what I heard, in MY OPINION, was complete hooey as much as I would have loved to believe it.  Anyone

Nutritarian Recipes, (following the Eat to Live Program) by Dr. Joel Furhman

Welcome to Team Nutritarian!  I have committed to being a Nutritarian (Nute) for the rest of my life.  There is so much great information out there and so many wonderful recipes I decided to create a space for me to collect everything which works for me and my own personal journey of releasing almost 200 pounds.  And also, to share with others to support them.  As a weight loss and health coach my profession and in my heart, I am happiest sharing what I believe to be true with others.

You are welcome to join my AMAZING Facebook Group:  Dr Fuhrmans Eat To Live – Nutritarian Plant Based Diet and participate day to day.  As this web site grows I will be sharing what works and what doesn’t for me and inviting you to do the same.

Life is truly about Eating to Live, not living to eat, as I have spent so much of my life until the past year.
