Guest Bio: Dr. Gayl Canfield, PhD, RD
Dr CanfieldSince 1991, Dr. Canfield has taught nutrition at both graduate and undergraduate levels, as well as in continuing education seminars for dietitians.

Courses include "Nutrition and Aging" and "Nutrition and Cancer Prevention." She has also published numerous studies and abstracts in peer-reviewed journals such as Journal of the American Dietetic Association and Anticancer Research.

Dr. Canfield has served as educator and Director of Nutrition at the Pritikin Longevity Center since 2005. Pritikin's residential program is based on daily exercise and natural whole foods such as fruits, vegetables, whole grains, seafood, and limited lean meat.

Since 1975, more than 115 studies in top medical journals have documented the Pritikin Program's success in helping the Center's 100,000+ guests achieve lifelong weight control, improve cholesterol levels, normalize blood pressure, decrease inflammatory markers, control blood sugar, avoid bypass surgery, and substantially reduce the risk of heart disease, hypertension, diabetes, and several cancers.
It is a popular misconception that you have to starve yourself and abandon any notion of enjoying food in order to lose weight.

"There is a myth in this country," states Dr. Gayl Canfield, "that healthy eating is too difficult to follow."

The most important and rewarding thing Dr. Canfield does is give people confidence that they really can "eat to be healthy."

Her patients learn that a healthy lifestyle is not about deprivation.

Instead, it's about all sorts of wonderful foods like fresh grilled seafood, savory pastas, incredible desserts – and most importantly, feeling the best that you've felt in years.

Join Dr. Canfield and Dr. Mike as they discuss this way of living and eating, also known as the "Pritikin principle."
