Why I Like this Book

  • Although written for people struggling with obesity and overweight, it’s applicable to even the healthiest people in explaining how food choices have the power to cut short or add many years to our life.
  • As a parent I was especially struck by the dramatic disease impact on the next generation due to bad eating habits and his simple solution—health through food.
  • I was riveted by the information, based on solid evidence, diabetes, hearts and even some cancers can be reversed through diet and lifestyle.
  • He provides useful information in every day language to “maximize your chances for a disease-free life,” showing the reader how to be an active participant in health rather than a passive “victim” to whom things happen and then needs a doctor to “make it right.”

Book description

The Eat To Live 2011 revised edition includes updated scientific research supporting Dr. Fuhrman’s revolutionary six-week plan and a brand new chapter highlighting Dr. Fuhrman’s discovery of toxic hunger and the role of food addiction in weight issues. This new chapter provides novel and important insights into weight gain. It explains how and why eating the wrong foods causes toxic hunger and the desire to over consume calories; whereas a diet of high micronutrient quality causes true hunger which decreases the sensations leading to food cravings and overeating behaviors. It instructs readers on how to leave behind the discomfort of toxic hunger, cravings, and addictions to unhealthy foods.

This is a book that will let you live longer, reduce your need for medications, and improve your health dramatically. It is a book that will change the way you want to eat.
