An offer you can't refuse

Dr. Fuhrman’s Holiday Challenge

Dr. Fuhrman is currently running a Holiday Challenge, which includes a free six week Gold Membership package at his website.  The details are here:

Anybody  who is unfamiliar with Dr. Fuhrman’s website should take advantage.  I pay for my Gold Membership, and it has been an extremely worthwhile investment.  After you sign up, one of the first places to check out are the archives of his past teleconferences with members:

One of my favorite talks is his Aug. 13, 2008 talk about curtailing overeating.  I like this one because the concept of overeating and toxic hunger has been responsible for me reaching even better levels of health than I have in the last four years.  
I was very successful on the program designed for me by Jeff Novick - reversing heart disease and diabetes and obesity, just to name a few of the problems I solved.  Yet I was still heavier than I thought I should be, even though I was totally adherent over three years plus.  Farley observed, as did I, that I ate dramatically larger portions and more often than did she.  Dr. McDougall had observed people like me and called them volume eaters.  However, he did not treat this problem in depth, and I was unable to solve the problem with what he wrote.  That changed when I started reading what Dr. Fuhrman had to say about toxic hunger.
In the teleconference above, Dr. Fuhrman begins by saying that he has probably been responsible for leading people to believe that they could eat as much as they cared to so long as they restricted themselves to healthy foods.  Some people, like Farley, can eat as much as they like, but not me.
Dr. Fuhrman explains the problem and the solution in that teleconference.  Anybody interested in this concept should also have his Eat to Live book, but for those who do not, he explains in detail about toxic hunger in his website here:
This information was very important to me in getting to an even healthier weight.  I would recommend it especially to anybody who thinks that they have a problem with the volume and/or frequency of what they eat.


  1. Six week! (typo says 'six month')

    I'm not sure that I'll take advantage, but I plan to at least buy some books.


  2. Thanks for picking that up, Marty. I corrected the error.

  3. Marty, do take advantage. In six weeks you can download and keep a lot of great info. You might even stay! But the teleconferences alone are amazingly good.
