Raw Food Vegan Diet Decreases Hunger & Obesity

“A new study published by Joel Fuhrman, M.D., in Nutrition Journal
reveals for the first time ever that people who follow a diet high
in micronutrients feel less hunger overall and suffer less discomfort
from hunger, even when they consume fewer calories.”

CITATION: Nutrition Journal 2010, 9:51doi:10.1186/1475-2891-9-51
7 November 2010

METHOD: 768 human subjects ate either a high nutrient density
diet consisting of raw fruits and vegetables or the standard
American diet consisiting of a low nutrient density diet.

Researchers report:

“Nearly 80% of respondents reported that their experience of
hunger had changed since starting the high nutrient density
diet, with 51% reporting a dramatic or complete change in
their experience of hunger.”

RESEARCHER’S CONCLUSION:

“Hunger is one of the major impediments to successful weight loss.
Our findings suggest that it is not simply the caloric content,
but more importantly, the micronutrient density of a diet that
influences the experience of hunger. It appears that a high
nutrient density diet, after an initial phase of adjustment
during which a person experiences “toxic hunger” due to withdrawal
from pro-inflammatory foods, can result in a sustainable eating
pattern that leads to weight loss and improved health. A high
nutrient density diet provides benefits for long-term health as
well as weight loss.”
