If you've tried multiple diets without weight loss success, Dr. Joel Fuhrman says he knows why: Diets don't work. He teamed up with "The Dr. Oz Show" and Dr. Mehmet Oz on March 24 to explain how his new weight loss plan takes off the pounds quickly and easily without dieting.
With fewer than two percent of dieters succeeding in their attempts to take off weight, Dr. Fuhrman warns that dieting can actually be dangerous to your health. The reason: That roller-coaster of losing weight, gaining weight and losing weight increases the risk of heart disease and diabetes. It also can result in emotional problems such as food addiction, cravings and depression about weight gain.
Dr. Fuhrman says that his new book explains how to stop that yo-yo diet cycle with a new twist on weight loss plans: "The End of Dieting: How to Live for Life" (click for details). The keys to his new approach to weight loss: Redesigning your approach to food, creating a desire for healthy foods and developing healthy eating habits.
Both Dr. Oz and Dr. Fuhrman emphasize that the standard American diet, which is loaded with processed foods, sugar and refined starch, keep dieters trapped in a cycle of overeating and toxic hunger. Dr. Fuhrman has developed a formula for permanent weight control: Health = Nutrients/Calories.
By eating foods with a high nutrient density, Dr. Fuhrman says that you can halt the storage of fat while eliminating your cravings for refined carbs, fat and sugar. The result: Safe, fast weight loss as well as the reversal of conditions such as diabetes.
