Q: What can I expect to achieve with the DR DEAN ORNISH DIET?
A: This program promotes weight loss, improved blood glucose and insulin sensitivity and reduced inflammation. It can help you reduce or eliminate medications for Type 2 diabetes, statins and more, plus help you resolve food cravings. In addition, intermittent fasting has been shown to slow aging and have lifespan-enhancing benefits.
Q: What will I eat during the program?
A: This 3-week program combines moderate caloric restriction with a detailed mealtime/ fasting schedule. You will follow a carefully designed DR DEAN ORNISH DIET meal plan that includes one fresh vegetable juice daily, and consume all of your meals within an eight-hour timeframe.
Q: What is the benefit of joining this program, as opposed to following a plan I found online?
A: This program offers a carefully designed meal plan and eating schedule designed by Dr. Fuhrman to maximize health and longevity. What also sets this plan apart is that it is a guided program– and that guidance and support comes directly from Dr. Fuhrman. You will be able to take part in interactive group video sessions with Dr. Fuhrman, in the comfort of your own home. You can ask questions– and get answers– in real time to help you achieve your wellness goals.
Q: What do I get besides a meal plan and video sessions?
A: In addition to the live support from Dr. Fuhrman and the carefully designed meal plans, recipes, and eating schedule, the program also includes a free month of Platinum membership (which allows you to post in the Ask the Doctor forum), enrollment in the At-Home Detox: Intermittent Fasting online course in Dr. Fuhrman’s Nutritarian Education Institute, a special edition digital copy of Eat for Health, and a free digital copy of Dr. Fuhrman’s 10 in 20: Lose 10 Pounds in 20 Days Detox Program. The 10 in 20 Program provides 20 daily meal plans and 60 Nutritarian recipes.
Q: I don’t have a juicer– can I still have success with DR DEAN ORNISH DIET?
A: Yes! You can buy juices online or at a local store that sells or extracts their own healthy juices. Just make sure that whatever you buy is organic, at least 80 percent vegetables and no more than 20 percent fruit, and is not sweetened with agave, maple syrup or anything else.
