Dr. Fuhrman's Nutritarian™ Pyramid

Dr. Joel Fuhrman's Nutritarian™ Food Pyramid illustrates and summarizes the plant-based diet that he explains in detail in his best-selling book, Eat to Live:  The Amazing Nutrient Rich Program for Fast and Sustained Weight Loss.

At the foundation are raw and cooked vegetables (excluding potatoes), followed by:

Fruits
Beans and Legumes
Seeds, Nuts and Avocados
Whole Grains and Potatoes

At the top are sweets, meat and dairy products which, if eaten at all, should be consumed rarely and in very limited quantities.  When considering including any animal products in your diet, it is important to first read Dr. Fuhrman's entire book, but particularly Chapter 4, "The Dark Side of Animal Protein".  Other excellent resources on this topic include:

Uprooting the Leading Causes of Death - a video in which Dr. Michael Greger offers practical advice on what to eat to prevent, treat and even reverse many of the top 15 killers in the United States

Animal Protein (Meat and Dairy) Cause Cancer - a video in which Dr. Collin Campbell discusses why a pure, healthful vegan (whole food plant-based) diet is optimal to good health and how animal protein causes cancer and other chronic diseases
