Editorial Reviews

Review

A terrific, non-diet - diet. Dr. Fuhrman explains precisely what you should eat and he makes it delicious. Eat For Health is effective, practical and sensible. --Richard N. Podell, M.D.

Dr. Fuhrman's nutritional prescription is a greatly-needed antidote to the US way of eating which has become a leading cause of disease and premature death. Despite all the sophisticated medical technology available today, the sobering truth is that the greatest tools for preventing and reversing disease are your fork and spoon. This way of eating will greatly benefit those in poor health as well as healthy persons desiring optimal wellness and vitality. Further, unlike most weight-loss approaches based on will-power and difficult to sustain, Dr. Fuhrman's approach corrects the underlying causes of excessive hunger and cravings, resulting in permanent, naturally-occurring weight loss. I have had the privilege of personally seeing the tremendous disease reversal that occurs with this way of eating, and whole-heartedly recommend this book. --Tonja R. Nansel, PhD

I love this book. It's hard to believe that Dr. Fuhrman could surpass his earlier book, Eat To Live, but he did. Eat For Health empowers us to make change. It is the only prescription that will ensure that our golden years remain golden and not riddled with disability and disease. Dr, Fuhrman's advice can enable you to achieve the same weight loss seen with gastric bypass surgery WITHOUT the surgery. A must read to exercise your taste buds and rev up your metabolic machinery. --Deanna Cherrone, M.D.

Eat For Health makes more sense than any other eating plan I have ever read about and over the years I have read more than my share. Some time ago I read about Calorie Restriction and how it is indeed the only proven thing to extend the longevity on one's life. (See calorierestriction dot org.) It involves restricting the number of calories that one eats but it also means that the calories you eat MUST be nutritious calories. Dr. Fuhrman takes this even further or at least makes it simple to apply. Using the information in his book all you need to do is make sure your diet includes an abundance of these nutrient rich foods. There is no need to count calories. If you stop eating the Standard American Diet [SAD] and adopt this nutrient dense way of eating you will at least greatly reduce your chances of ever developing heart disease, cancer, autoimmune diseases and who knows what else and you will not be overweight or be doomed to living your final years in physical pain and suffering from conditions like arthritis and type 2 diabetes etc.

I am in my 60s and I am 5 ft. 11 in. tall. In January of 2009 I was 205 pounds and decided it was time to lose a few pounds. I switched from eating what I thought was a very healthy diet which included avoiding junk like MSG and high fructose corn syrup and hydrogenated oils and included seafood and almost never any dairy or red meat or poultry, to eating strictly vegan. I cut out the seafood and the cheese and eggs. I lost 12 pounds but could not lose anymore. In June I decided to drink a lot of grapefruit juice and sometimes had nothing but grapefruit juice all day and sometimes I would have one vegetarian meal. I did this for a couple of weeks and lost another 12 pounds but I was hungry all the time. Then I read Dr.

I've read a lot about health, yet I still remain overweight. Why? Finally I feel I understand why from listening to Dr. Fuhrman's audio book. For those who aren't familiar with some health basics, Dr. Fuhrman dispells such myths that "dairy is good for you" and "you can't get enough protein from plant sources". He explains the importance of eating highly nutrient foods.

This book differs from Eat To Live in that it's more gradual in weening you off unhealthy foods and introducing fruits and veggies into your diet.

I was able to lose weight using the Eat to Live's drastic six weeks of optimal nutrient eating. The weight just fell off effortlessly. However, I feel I was only able to do this after recovering from a stomach flu. Earlier this year, I was so sick I couldn't keep water in my system what so ever. After listening to Eat for Health, I feel that sickness completely reset my hunger drive and removed all cravings.

Right after that stomach flu, I was able to eat large quantites of salad. In Eat for Health, Dr. Fuhrman explains toxic hunger. It's our salt cravings, our sweet tooth, and our need to eat all the time. When we aren't eating these empty calorie high salt high fat foods, our body starts to detox. It's this detox that makes us think we have hypoglycemia or that we are hungry. When we put more food in our mouth (usually more junk) it alleviates these symptoms. We forever think we are hungry. Technically we are still hungry since our body is desparte for nutrients, yet it's addicted to bad food.

Learning about that toxic hunger has taught me why I struggle to lose weight. I'm physically and emotionally addicted to bad food.

Two years I went on a holistic cruise on which Dr. Fuhrman was presenting along with many other speakers. I am 65 years old and have always eaten for comfort. The 1st night we decided we were not going to eat the recommended diet. However,when we went to change our seating, we were told we could eat anything we wanted, but, had to stay in our seats. Interestingly, we ate the diet that Dr. Fuhrman recommends or something close to it. That was almost two years ago. The claim on the cruise was that cancer could be prevented by eating correctly. So, I decided that I had had pre-cancerous colon polyps for about 12 years. If this diet works, I should expect that that will not be present when I have my next colonoscopy. This week, yesterday, I had my test. I was stunned when my gastroentrologist indicated that there were NO polyps of any nature. I can tell you that I intend to continue to eat lots of very healthy salads, beans and brown rice, and as many organic vegetables as are available. Kale is the most healthy of the vegetables. My health has been improving for a while. I intend to improve my physical movement and on the cruise did participate with two internationally known yoga instructors who taught us how to breathe beyond ourselves.

I am always looking for CDs to listen to while I'm out on my walk. I enjoy someone just 'talking' to me...These are ver clear, concise, & EZ to understand, etc. I'm trying to refine my eating/living habits, & this is super-simple to help w/ that.

The information presented was not what I expected. many of the foods that I thought were good for me modern science has proven to be bad for me. I've lost 30 lbs in 8 weeks and I never have to go hungry. Just stop eating what is bad and eat more of what is good.

Lost of actual scientific data to prove his points, not just a fad diet writen by a yoga instructor.
