Dr. Joel Fuhrman and his daughter Jenna discuss one of the most debated topics in the world of nutrition — calorie intake. Calorie restriction comes up a lot when people talk about plant-based diets. The common misconception is that a plant-based diet is calorie-restricted because it excludes animal products. But how much of that statement is true in a dietary pattern that is rich in micronutrients?
In the Nutritarian community, one gets to eat until they're satisfied. They eat protein and healthy fats from foods like legumes, nuts, and seeds. They eat their G-BOMBS (Greens, beans, onions, mushrooms, berries, and seeds) a.k.a the cancer-fighting superfoods. They eat by how much their body needs, allowing them to lose weight the healthy way. And, age gracefully.
