Today is the half way point! I was at my brother’s house for family day so I had to go through his books to find one to read. I picked, “Eat to Live” by Joel Fuhrman. M.D.

The whole premise of the book is that your diet is your first line of defense for your health and longevity when you aggressively eat in a highly dense nutrient way.

He said that high-nutrient, low-calorie eating results in dramatic increases in lifespan as well as prevention of chronic illnesses.

He uses a term in the book of “nutritarian” is someone who follows the formula of…
Health = Nutrients % Calories (H=N/C)

He also created the aggregate nutrient density index, or ANDI. It lets you quickly see which foods are the most health-promoting and nutrient dense. The ANDI ranks the nutrient value of many common foods on the basis of how many nutrients they deliver to your body for each calorie consumed. Unlike food labels which list only a few nutrients, ANDI scores are based on thirty-four important nutritional parameters. Foods are ranked on a scale of 1-1000, with the most nutrient-dense cruciferous leafy green vegetables scoring 1000.

He has a lot of interesting information. My brother Kenny loves this book. I like it too.
