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.
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.
