Ratings for Dr. Joel H. Fuhrman
I saw Dr. Fuhram and found him to be true to his word of giving me the right direction to lose weight. He was thoughtful and listened. I never found him to be rude as others say. I think that they did not want to hear the truth. He is the first Dr. that told me what I thought I should weigh also. Most go doctors go off BMI. I am very small boned, but very tall. BMI calculation does not work. He tells you straight what you need to do. I have followed up with him and used his dietitians. I have moved across country but use his website for guidance. His advice is logical - follow it.
He wrote a book about water fasting... I tried it for 3 weeks. About the worst thing I could have done it took me months to recover. He claims to know all this stuff about nutrition, just terrible advice. Even his nutritarian approach, while it does have good points (fruits and vegetables I can't argue with that) it's also misguided too. This guy is purely out to make cash. Juice fasting is awesome though (and not his idea at all) but all of his advice just is off the mark.
Dr. Fuhrman is arrogant and rude. Instead of answering questions in a straightforward professional manner, he's sarcastic and "talks down." His answer to every health problem is: Eat more vegetables and less animal products. My grandmother could have told me that for free!
