nutritarianism n.
Example Citations:
There are flexitarians, who eat a little bit of meat, and pescatarians, who skip meat but consume seafood. Raw foodists don't believe in cooking. And now come the nutritarians. Central to nutritarianism is the understanding that fruits and vegetables contain thousands of vitamins, minerals and phytochemicals — substances they believe are not found in any other food source.

Linda Sellers, a registered dietitian and certified diabetes educator at St. Anthony's Hospital in St. Petersburg, says vegetarian or vegan (no animal products, including eggs and dairy) diets similar to Fuhrman's "are generally nutritional, and may provide health benefits in the prevention and treatment of certain diseases." That includes lowering blood pressure and reducing the risk of diabetes and cancer. (Fuhrman has coined the term "nutritarian," since his "life plan" does allow some animal products.)
