The title really says it all.

Dr. Fuhrman preaches a simple rule, everything you eat should have a high degree of nutrition compared to its calories. Based on this, meats, carbs, dairy, and processed foods dont make the cut when compared to greens, beans, fruits and even nuts. Therefore, you can get more nutrition eating less calories through veggies/fruits/beans.

When I first read the book, I found it unbelievable and a bit depressing - everything I grew up eating and loving was essentially bad for me. Nonetheless, I gave his advice a try, and he was right on all counts. I lost weight at an unprecedented rate(with and without exercise), I slept better, my cholesterol dropped, and felt better. It also helped my best friend control his diabetes without having to take medication.

Some other reviewers think this book is extreme or too vegan. They are right.. it is both extreme and vegan - COMPARED to what we have learned to eat. The problem is that what society deems as the norm, is not necessarily what is best for us. Watch TV commercials or read print magazines and count how many times they advertise meals with veggies or fruits vs how many times they advertise meat, dairy or carbs. The latter are just very dominant and available in our culture to our detriment.

This is not an easy diet at first, but its benefits show themselves quickly and will keep you on the right track. And once you see the benefits.. you will want to share the advice with your loved ones to help them too.

This book is excellent for those interested in maintaining a Vegetarian or Vegan diet. However, for the average omnivore, even those who eat limited amounts animal protein, this diet is way toooooooooooooooooooooooo restrictive and unrealistic. Also, I found his ideal weight chart and emphasis on exercise inadequate. I did however, after ready this book, drastically reduce my consumption of animal protein and began working out more regularly. Thus far I have lost a total of 10 pounds in about 3 weeks and have only 15 more to go . . . Overall, I would ONLY recommend this book to Vegetarians or Vegans interested in weight loss . . .

    Too Restrictive

    This diet sounds healthy, but I found it too restrictive: it is a vegan diet (although a few very limited concessions are allowed for those who refuse to give up animal food entirely).
