The motivating reasons Dr. Fuhrman’s patients make healthy weight a priority:
•Learning about the successes of others losing weight and reversing chronic disease, when all other diet methods have previously failed, triggers the desire to recommit to health.
•Discovering the science, logic and theory behind high-nutrient eating to remove addictive overeating provides the drive to get started.
The two biggest obstacles that stand in the way of motivation and determination to lose weight or maintain a healthy weight:
•Misinformation about food and nutrition indoctrinated at an early age.
•Allowing feelings and emotions to govern decision-making and food addictions to control behavior.
The top habits to adopt when trying to maintain a healthy weight:
•Focus on long-term health and not on immediate weight loss.
•Eat enough food volume with high-nutrient foods to remove the desire to overeat.
•Educate with the right information from the start.
Everyone can take steps toward being healthier with this knowledge:
•Our health is our greatest wealth.
•We can’t escape the biological laws of cause and effect. We must recognize that we can’t buy good health; we have to earn it with healthy eating and physical fitness.
•Good nutrition is not optional; it’s essential. Putting nutritional science into action allows us to take control of our health destiny.
