Today (March 24, 2015) Dr. Oz invited Dr. Joel Fuhrman on to the show to talk about his book, (The End of Dieting) philosophies, and why diets are actually bad for you. Instead of yo-yo dieting, Dr. Fuhrman shared his guidelines on how to lose weight permanently. Once you know the general philosophies to follow you will never have to follow the latest diets that claim excellent results but generally don’t deliver (or are not good for you).
Is Dieting Bad For You?
Dr. Oz believes that dieting is dangerous and all too often leaves you worse off then before starting the diet. He believes that peole should give up dieting because yo-yo dieting (losing weight and gaining it all back) can increase your risk for heart disease and cancer. Here are three of the trendiest dieting out there and what Dr. Joel Fuhrman thinks of each :
Paleo Diet – This program can help you lose weight but you will be ingesting a lot of animal proteins. Dr. Fuhrman believes that too much animal proteins can raise your risk for heart disease and breast cancer.
Mediterranean Diet – High in fat and contains a lot of white flour. Not healthy to stay on long term.
Wheat Belly – Dr. Fuhrman explained to Dr. Oz and the audience that this diet can be wholesome and healthy if you are careful to avoid highly processed foods. He also said the Wheat Belly diet confuses people into believing that they have to avoid wheat from their diet altogether.
Permanent Weight Loss – Eat “G-Bomb” Foods and Never Get Fat

Its an acronym for “Greens, Beans, Onions, Mushrooms, Berries and Seeds.” Dr. Fuhrman said that you can eat as much of these foods as you want and you will achieve permanent weight loss and lower your risk for serious diseases like cancer, heart disease, diabetes, etc…
Tip : Eat “Slow Foods” at breakfast. Slow foods help to satisfy your appetite for a long time. Slow food examples include : Oatmeal, berries, and chia seeds.
