Like so many things, I think moderation with food is the key to keeping your weight even.

Well this is a great time of year to evaluate how you want your year and future to work out. Great podcast, great timing.

The Dr. touchers on a really good point. Establishing good habits at a young age is a really solid way to eat well throughout life. Teacher your kids good habits and it will be something they will thank you for one day.

Good point- when you actually eat food which is not nutritious, your body is literally starving, and thus you eat and eat and eat, craving nutrients.

The hardest part for me, is breaking old habits. The bagel shop I drive by on the way to work, eating out to often etc etc. Once I get into a new routine, which is centered on a healthy program, I am golden, for awhile.

Glad to get some support for my belief that good nutrition is a key to maintaining healthy weight.

I wrestle with when and when not to battle with my kids about their eating habits. It is a fine line to steer them in a healthy direction, and to push them away from good choices.

Thank you for your tremendous supply of healthy food in a very clean, friendly store. I've made friends of staff all over the Gateway store. I've given hugs, complements, and smiles and have gotten excellent help and encouragement. Your prices for really good stuff, especially the 365 label, are generally competitive even with HEB. I think Sprouts is trying to outdo you, but they are certainly lacking in organic produce of the variety that you have. You still get the biggest portion of my grocery dollars each week. In addition, let me thank you for those specials of purchase a stated item and get three items for free. What a bargain! ---LaVerne Johnston

I agree with others here. It is vital to help our children learn solid eating habits, they are after all our future.

I think Dr. Fuhrman is right on, we should be focusing on good health not avoiding illness. As long as we think or worry about eating to avoid something happening to us the fear precludes our enjoyment of our good health. Makes a lot of sense. Thanks for having him on.

I just finished reading the Joel Furhman's book, Eat to Live, and it's so refreshing to get the real truth about the foods we eat as Americans. I have been a vegetarian since 1992 (has is really been 18 years?) and only now do I realize that I've been going about it all wrong. I have at least 75 pounds of pregnancy weight to lose (although my "baby" just had her fifth birthday), debunking the myth that all vegetarians are slim (sorry, Tree). Before you start judging....let me assure you I eat lots of fruits, veggies and only whole grains; and rarely eat sweets. My downfall has been in the incorrect thinking that I had to eat large amounts of protein to be healthy. My inclusion of milk, cheese and eggs as protein sources ends today! Thank you, Dr. Furhman, for your revolutionary thinking.

If you look at all of the processed and fast foods we eat in our culture, it is no wonder we have such an increase on obesity in the last decade. Fresh foods = Healthy Foods.

I love these podcast- I think it is a really great extension of your stores. Please keep them coming.

I think a diet which is primarily based on fruits, grains, and veggies is the way to go. It works for me at least!

I have the hardest time turning my habit trail around. I think I may have done it this year, however! Gym in the morning before breakfast- I have more energy throughout the day and less hunger for breakfast.

I appreciate that the Dr. speaks about the importance of being healthy vs watching your weight. All to often people count their calories and set themselves up for failure.

It feels good to know other people are struggling with healthy eating.

Lots more info for those who want it at drfuhrman.com. I'm a member and the doctor is AMAZING. Those of us who follow his guidance call ourselves nutritarians.

Glad you touched on the fad diet. I know so many friends who have crashed and burned with these diets. It is hard to see them rise and fall emotionally.
