Day 13-Nutritional Bite

Fasting and natural diet, though essentially unknown [in today's U.S.] as a therapy, should be the first treatment when someone discovers that she or he has a medical problem. It should not be applied only to the most advanced cases, as is present practice. 

Whether the patient has a cardiac condition, hypertension, autoimmune disease, fibroids, or asthma, he or she must be informed that fasting and natural, plant-based diets are a viable alternative to conventional therapy, and an effective one. The time may come when not offering this substantially more effective nutritional approach will be considered malpractice.

-Joel Fuhrman, M.D., from his book, Fasting And Eating For Health: A Medical Doctor's Program for Conquering Disease

Hey, this blog is great. I met you last weekend in Harlem with Jenn. I have been showing your blog to a friend of mine who asked if you had any suggestions for preparing coffee and tea in a "sugar shun" manner--any suggestions? (meaning no white sugar)

Thanks.

It is great to hear from you! I don’t know from experience, but I heard Stevia Plus is a great substitute. Stevia comes in powder or liquid form and it has been said to be 10-40 times sweeter than sugar. Stevia is a natural, sweet-tasting, non-toxic plant that has no calories, lowers blood pressure and inhibits fat absorption. It is diabetic-safe, as it does not adversely affect blood sugar. You can buy it online and at most health stores. I hope this helps and thanks for sharing with your friends!

Jay,
I recommend a natural replacement for white sugar--honey in your tea and coffee. I prefer honey in my tea.
