I'm curious about the reaction to this segment. I'm not a huge Chopra fan, but I thought this was a good segment. Legitimate to ask about supporting his claims, but I didn't hear him making any outrageous ones.

Please ask Mr. Chopra about his objections to frozen foods, particularly fruits and vegetables, and which research supports his view.

His philosophy in a nutshell: Eat only when you're hungry. Drink a lot of water instead.

I have the "bag of salad" challenge.

Take a bag of salad off the shelf at the supermarket, add red onion, mushroom, broccoli, fresh sliced tomato, a can of chickpeas and dress it with balsamic vinaigrette.

There's no way you can chew your way through that and still be "hungry."
