    2. Slow Absorbing Foods – Dr. Furhman explained to Dr. Oz that foods that are absorbed and digested slowly in your intestinal tract like beans, seeds, and nuts keep your blood sugar in balance and prevent sugar spikes. They also have the added benefit of lowering your cholesterol.
    3. Eat Meat As A Condiment Rather Than The Main Course – Dr. Fuhrman says that you should get most of your nutrients from your meal from plant based foods.  Try to limit your meat to be only 10 percent of your meals.
    4. Add 10 Chews To Every Bite – The fourth food rule is to add an extra 10 chews to each bite in your meal.  Dr. Fuhrman soaid that the average person only chews 15 times before they swallow.  Simply adding 10 extra chews helps to boost your immunity and lose weight.  Dr. Oz chimed in and gave the statistic that people eat on average 10 percent less during each meal when they chew their food more.
