WOW, so simple to lose weight on this plant-based diet.

With the amount of books written on diet plans, the amount of diet centers, and the endless advertising of diet pills, one would think that America would be a society of healthy people free of disease and at their optimal weight. Instead,there has been a rise in overweight and obese peoplein the United States. Dr. Fuhrman’s research shows, “In spite of the more than $110 million consumers spend every dayon diets and "reducing" programs (more than $40 billion per year),Americans are the most obese people in history”.

Eat to Live (ETL) offers a different outlook on eating. It comesacross in a gentle way without suggesting a strict diet and exercise program to lose weight. Best of all, this isn’t a “get skinny quick” sell. It is based on doing what so many in the diet industry failed to do – give you a life plan for health AND weight loss. It also describes some of the common diets that Americans may have tried, or all still on, and why these diets are “fad diets” and DON’T WORK! These diets are for the short-term, not the long-term.

ETL showed me how the Standard American Diet (SAD) has caused only an increase in the rate of disease and overweight people, with the most common disease being heart disease. It’s so sad to think that this disease is no longer one suffered in old age – the young are also having heart attacks. This is because our children are eating processed foods and high quantities of meat and dairy products.

The new approach to a true lifestyle change introduced in this bookas the formula, H=N/C, which is Health equals Nutrient/Calories, or “health predicted by your nutrient intake divided by your intake of calories”. In other words, there is no limit to what you eat when you make good food choices, which is vegetables, fruits, and beans. That’s it. So simple – so easy.And the best part is that you don’t even have to try and lose weight with this approach, your body will normalize to its desired weight by itself and it will be maintained for your lifetime.

Now, this book is not only about losing weight, but offers an approach that will also keep you healthy or remedy an unhealthy situation that you may be living with. That is the true message - Living a long and healthy life free from common diseases caused by SAD, such as cancer, heart conditions, arthritis, and diabetes.

There are tons of documented research examples in ETL to justify why every American ought to switch to a plant-based diet. There is no denying the evidence. It is all there. The book contains an easy start guide to changing your eating style with:
-A six day eating plan
-A shopping list that you can use after your six days of detoxing.
-Various recipes that are delicious!

It’s amazing the type meals you can create without high fat protein, dairy, and eggs.

I highly recommend ETL for anyone that is suffering from a disease, or who wants to start living a healthy life. It is your choice, but I would encourage you to read this book as it will change your mind on what you consume. Dr. Fuhrman has also come out with a revised edition of Eat to Live, which is on the New York Times Best Seller list right now, because of his recent appearance on the Dr. Oz show.

So leave behind the toxicity and enjoy a long healthy life, you will be glad you did. I am.

Lovingly,

It does work but not realistic to keep meat out of your diet for so long. Was able to keep on diet for 3months before introducing meat back into diet. Lost a lot of weight in three months. Love the idea behind this way of life though.

    I like the book, but not on the nook.

    The Furman plan is logical, but may be hard to "stick to". Also, it is very difficult to read the charts, tables, and graphs with nook format. I would give the book a higher rating if it were not so hard to disiminate certain content. Better to purchase the hardback.

    blah-blah-blah

    Saw Dr Fuhrman on Dr Oz, and since I love fruit & veggies, thot this would be a great book for me. I have to skip thru a lot of case studies (sorry, I don't care to read how 400 lb lady lost 275 lbs...whatever) and lots of scientific charts, etc. Really, anyone who wants to lose weight and get healthy has read all this info ad nauseam, we just want the nitty gritty: tell me what to eat and give me recipes. I'm still reading it, hope he gets to the point soon! I glad I had gift card to pay for this, wouldn't have wasted my $10.
