FLEMINGTON, N.J., Nov. 20, 2013 /PRNewswire/ -- Joel Fuhrman, M.D., New York Times best-selling author, board-certified family physician and nutritional researcher, is pleased to announce Dr. Fuhrman's Holiday Health Fest – a 7-week long healthy holiday campaign consisting of motivational posts, informative articles and videos, delicious recipes, inspiring success stories and weekly contests with a range of top-notch prizes including books, videos and Vitamix high-powered blenders. Additionally, Dr. Fuhrman's Holiday Health Fest features a Grand Prize Sweepstakes with the chance to win $2,014.
Recognizing that the holiday season is often the most difficult time of year for people to stay committed to their health goals. Dr. Fuhrman has organized this event to celebrate the robust good health that can be achieved through eating a Nutritatian diet. Dr. Fuhrman coined the term Nutritarian to represent a lifestyle that focuses on eating nutrient-rich, natural foods. Nutritarian holidays are not about depriving yourself. They are about getting the maximum satisfaction and enjoyment out of a wonderful time of year.
The average American gains 8 pounds between Thanksgiving and New Year's Day and those pounds are likely to stay around forever and continue accumulating over time. Worse, eating for recreation through the holidays causes thousands of deaths from heart attacks each year. The three days of the year when most Americans die of heart attacks are December 25th, 26th and January 1st. Overindulging on food and drink during the holidays can be deadly. Choose life instead of suffering from fatigue, nausea, headaches and guilt that result from traditional holiday indulgence. Dr. Fuhrman's Holiday Health Fest offers participants support to sail through the season feeling energetic and good about themselves.
Dr. Fuhrman's Holiday Health Fest is open to legal residents of the U.S. over the age of 18. Eligible fans can enter the sweepstakes by going to Dr. Fuhrman's Facebook page and clicking on the Holiday Sweepstakes tab. Participants are encouraged to share the page for additional entries.
The goal of Dr. Fuhrman's Holiday Health Fest is to offer support, ideas and tips on getting through the holidays when it may be difficult to stay focused on health while making it fun with sweepstakes and weekly contests.
