Dr. Joel Fuhrman is a renowned family physician, nutrition researcher and New York Times bestselling author. With over two decades of medical and nutrition experience and expertise, Dr. Fuhrman has made it his mission to show the world that sustainable weight loss and healing from disease is possible through “super nutrition”. Dr. Fuhrman is the creator of the Nutritarian Diet, a nutrient-dense and plant-rich eating style.

Dr. Fuhrman is also the president of the Nutritional Research Foundation.

Dr. Fuhrman is an internationally recognized expert on nutrition and natural healing, and frequently appears on the Dr. Oz Show.

Since graduating from the University of Pennsylvania School of Medicine, Dr. Fuhrman has successfully treated more than 10,000 patients with serious medical conditions with his smart nutrition recommendations.

Beyond the plethora of information available in his books, Dr. Fuhrman also shares his expertise on air with the PBS network.

Dr. Fuhrman is the creator of the ANDI food scoring system. The ANDI ranks the nutrient value of many common foods on the basis of how many nutrients they deliver to the body for each calorie consumed. This system has been adopted by Whole Foods Market, and has directed millions of consumers to eat an anti-cancer diet-style. Dr. Fuhrman believes that the Standard American Diet (SAD) contributes directly to the formation of chronic and autoimmune diseases, including cancers, in individuals. Understanding the nutrient density of foods, therefore, helps consumers understand what foods are best to put in their bodies to ward off and keep disease at bay.
