Joel H. Fuhrman, MD
Family Medicine
To consume the exact number of calories necessary to maintain a lean body mass that will prolong life, you must get rid of toxic hunger (physical addiction to an unhealthful, low-micronutrient diet) and get back in touch with true hunger. If you eat when hungry and don't eat when not hungry, you will never have to diet or be overweight again. You do not have to carry around a calculator and a scale to figure out how much to eat. A healthy body will give you the correct signals. You only will desire the amount of calories you actually require.
