Book Description

2 Jan 2003
Dr. Joel Fuhrman's revolutionary diet is not about willpower, it is about knowledge. Eat to Live offers a healthy, effective, and scientifically proven Six-Week Plan for shedding a radical amount of weight quickly. The key to the program's success is simple: health = nutrients: calories When the ratio of nutrients to calories in the food you eat is high, fat melts away. The more nutrient-dense food you consume, the more you will be satisfied with fewer calories and the less you will crave fat and high-calorie foods. Eat to Live will help you live longer, reduce your need for medications, and improve your overall health dramatically. It is a book that will change the way you want to eat. Most of all, though, Eat to Live will enable you to lose more weight than you ever thought possible.

5.0 out of 5 stars This is Much More Than A Weight Loss Plan 5 Feb 2013
By Liz
Format:Mass Market Paperback
I hardly ever think of giving feedback on things I buy but this book is so good that I want to share the knowledge! This is a weight loss plan but it is so much more than that. This is an eating plan for a longer life and for the best of health.The whole book is about how to eat in the way that science shows to be the best for optimum health. There is information that you are not getting from the health authorities.

Dr. Furhman favours a plant based diet because that is what all the studies show to be the optimum for us. But there are recipes for non vegetarians too.
The weight loss plan is based on eating nutritious foods that keep you from ever being hungry. The diet has a 6 week starter set out. You can follow the diet he sets out or your own adaptation based on the knowledge in the book.

I decided to follow it as set out. I have cooked the recipes he gives and stuck to his menus almost 100%. The recipes are delicious and very filling. Someone said the recipes were no good but I could not disagree more. Maybe that reviewer is used to a very unhealthy diet! I am a strict vegetarian (ie no animal products at all) so the fresh food, delicious vegetable soups and salads he prescribes suit me very well.

You never feel hungry on this plan and the reason is that the food is bulky and very filling and is so nutritious that your body is not craving for any nutrients.

I strongly recommend this book. Eat to Live: The Amazing Nutrient-Rich Program for Fast and Sustained Weight Loss

5.0 out of 5 stars Eat to Live 30 Aug 2010
By Afir
This book explains, with excellent reasoning, the real food issues.
This book was recommended by someone very close to me, and I cannot thank him enough.
I am now much better educated about food.The explanatory diagrams are good and simple to understand.
These should be copied and put on the fridge.
The main aim of the book is to prevent illness and it makes a great contribution to wellness.
I will certainly be buying the new issue out shortly.
Thank you Joel Fuhrman,M.D., you will never know how much this book has meant to me.

5.0 out of 5 stars Can't give this diet up 26 April 2013
Format:Kindle Edition with Audio/Video|Verified Purchase
Started this diet 14 weeks ago. I have coeliac disease, fibromyalgia, migraines weekly this has progressively been like this since I was very young. I had a very restricted life Since I started the diet the gluten side of my diet was sorted straight away so no trouble. the migraines stopped immediately and have had only one . the fibro has really eased not much pain and gradually starting to feel more energetic I have lost 14 lbs, it wasnt why i did this as i wasnt very over weight lots of people who know me say I look really well I cant believe that I have found a diet that really does what it says makes you feel we'll, I have tried many but failed for different reasons usually hunger. I use to have a really sweet tooth but have not missed the cake biscuits etc i feel very well fed no cravings. Since then I have bought 2more of dr fuhrmans books as this explains why to do the diet but the eat healthy one explains better how to apply it. I can only say try this for yourself

5.0 out of 5 stars this is going to work. 19 Mar 2010
I have angina, hence the will to improve my health, and this book is making sense. I have had no advice from my doctors, just lose weight is all they said. This man explains why. Its very repetitive, but maybe that way the message might actually sink in.
I dont know how long I can keep the extreme diet up, but so far I have lost 10lbs in 2 weeks. So, thats not bad, and I feel well in myself.

4.0 out of 5 stars Eating towards longevity? 22 May 2003
'Eat to live' focuses on eating food that is high in vitamins and nutrients excluding anything based on fat and refined carbohydrates. The book kicks off with a description of why the American diet is hazardous. Dr. Fuhrman practices in the US, so not much focus is given to the European diet. A thorough analysis of today's fad diets is given in subsequent chapters. Dr. Fuhrman manages to scientifically prove the failure of these diets in a coherent, easy manner that is understandable by most readers. The last part of the book deals with his eating regime. Although the book is interesting, I found the style rather irritating in that it looks as if the author is trying to 'sell' his diet (America's entrepreneurial culture at work!). This is quite unfortunate since Dr. Fuhrman's arguments make sense and that should be enough to convince anyone to go for his eating regime.
I just started following his recommendations. My first impressions are quite positive - even my complexion seems to have improved! However, for someone in love with pasta, chicken and fish, the new eating habit will prove quite a struggle. Hopefully, the case studies given throughout the book will inspire me to stick to Dr. Fuhrman's healthy eating regime.

Interesting and life changing book. I am following the six week plan and am loving it the idea of eating as much as you like on raw and greens vegetables intrigues me.
