Joel Fuhrman, M.D.

Joel Fuhrman, M.D. is a board-certified family physician, six-time NY Times best-selling author and nutritional researcher who specializes in preventing and reversing disease through nutritional and natural methods. He is an internationally recognized expert on nutrition and natural healing, and has appeared on hundreds of radio and television shows including The Dr. Oz Show, the Today Show, Good Morning America, and Live with Kelly. Dr. Fuhrman’s four hugely successful PBS television shows bring nutritional science to homes all across America.  Dr. Fuhrman is President of the Nutritional Research Foundation. 

Dr. Fuhrman’s #1 New York Times best-selling book, Eat to Live, originally published in 2003 (Little Brown), has sold over 1,000,000 copies and has been published in 18 foreign language editions. Dr Fuhrman is the father of Nutritarian eating. His health (longevity) equation H = N/C, (healthy life expectancy is proportional to lifetime intake of micronutrient diversity and quantity per calorie) has interested scientists the world over. As an advocate of diets rich in a vast array of plant micronutrients per calorie, his ANDI scoring system, featured in Whole Foods Market, has directed millions of consumers to eat an anti-cancer diet-style. Dr. Fuhrman’s discoveries in differentiating the physiology and biochemistry of true hunger from addictive hunger (which he calls toxic hunger) are essential for understanding and resolving both health and weight concerns, and an essential element to solve our nation’s obesity and health crisis.
