Optimal NutritionwithKenneth R. Pelletier

Books Mentioned In This Interview

Kenneth R. Pelletier, MD, PhD, is professor of medicine at the University of California, San Francisco, Medical Center. He is author of Longevity, Mind As Healer – Mind As Slayer, Toward a Science of Consciousness, Sound Mind – Sound Body, The Best Alternative Medicine, Healthy People in Unhealthy Places, and Change Your Genes – Change Your Life.

Here he discusses research findings concerning diet and nutrition. He points out that there is very little evidence that popular fad diets work in the long-run. People almost always regain the weight they may have lost. The most effective approach involves a lifestyle based on what is called the “Mediterranean Diet”. Organic food is advised. Dietary supplements, particularly anti-oxidants, can also be helpful — based upon one’s genetic makeup and needs. Individual differences are crucial. Occasional fasting is advised. Moderation is a good general rule.
