I think this Doc is "nuttier than a fruit cake" if he actually believes this, or "smart like a fox", making millions fleecing the foolish public, with a book touting his theories.

Many moons ago..there was a diet that was very much like what the Dr. said. Can't remember anything more about it except it was a fad diet back then. Need I say more?

Yeah, gotta say, I don't agree with this doc. I think all vegetables/fruit are good for you. Some need to be in more moderation (like potatoes, carrots, etc that are higher in carbs) but they are still healthy. Maybe he needed to clarify more what he was saying. Goes to show that even with 'credible' people/shows we need to use our gut instinct or double check the information.

If you have been on a farm - you will see a cow run! I think it is all in moderation. I do not exclude anything I like. If I did, I would not be able to stick with it. That's my two cents.

I want out of the 300's! It has been so long since I have seen 2-- on the scale. Each pound gone is one pound closer!

I certainly don't understand ( or necessarily agree with ) what the doctor said.

As a vegetarian, the "runs, flies, or swims" makes me sick. All I can envision are my cats running throughout the house and all the bugs buzzing around outside. ICK!

I think that maybe he was speaking of starchy ground food like potatoes, but carrots (for example) are great for you! Maybe he was speaking of pesticides or something? Things that grow in the ground might get chemicals leeched into them more easily?

I don't eat anything that has (or had) a heartbeat! :)



On Edit:
Did he say why he thought that eating any food below ground wasn't good?

I'm with Nora. I would die then cut out carrots and onions! they are part of almost every meal we make, at least the onions are. lol. I could give up beef that doesn't hurt my feelings at all. However hubby would cry.

That would mean things like peanuts, carrots, onions, beets, turnips, yams, etc. are bad for you? I don't think so. Sounds like a quack to me.

As with all advice i would get a second opinion on that theory! think of all the little animals that run, unless i was in a survival situation would i ever think of eating those little guys...so i would ask a nutrientist about that theory...have a good weekend.

So there was a nutrition doctor on Fit TV who stated the following as a rule of them when choicing healthy foods. I wanted to share and get your thoughts on this. The rule is: If it runs, flys, or swim you can eat it. He then stated have you ever seen a cow do any of those things? Next part, If it grows above ground it's good. If you have to dig to get it you should avoid it.

What are your thoughts on this?
